A lot of NZ is like that - beautiful.

Hi Kim
No, I'm not a kiwi. My father-in-law moved to NZ for work fifteen years ago so we have been infrequent visitors.
Kind regards

Ben

Hi Tilt,

Yes, I think the photographer/captioner is a liitle over the top in his enthusiasm.

"Alms Round, Milford Sound" indeed. Comparable to writing "Alms Round, Grand Canyon" on a photo. In either case you'd probably go hungry...

There was also tent, or better, a mosquito net as well, in the middle of no where.

Do they live out there?

Ajahn must have had quite the stash of good kamma to get a sunny day in Fiordland for the photo op. :lol: ;)

'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -
