Aren looks a little confused because he's trying to figure out where to go next. There were so many cool hiking paths and only a few hours of daylight left.

New Zealand is so beautiful, it almost defies words. And now I know why they don't have anyone promoting tourism. I mean, technically, they do, but their job is to keep people like me away so that I don't tell the world about how great this place is. I'm serious.

Even Iden, who is not exactly an outdoorsman, loves this place. The people are friendly, it's beautiful, and the food is excellent. What more could Iden want? Oh, wait, don't answer that -- I think I have a list right here.

One of the cool things about New Zealand is that you see things you've never seen and probably never will again. No wonder they filmed all the Lord of the Rings movies here. No need for special effects; this is really what it looks like.

Hey, why not spend a few minutes with the boys and me this weekend? We’ll tell you even more about our New Zealand adventure.

And don’t forget this week’s question: What’s your favorite hike of all time? We’ll read your answers next week.
