Video: New Zealand—The Spirit of the South Island

There are few countries on the planet that have handled the coronavirus pandemic better than New Zealand. For the past three months—aside from a random dust-up here and there—the number of cases of COVID-19 in the country has effectively been zero. That means that the kiwis have had a chance to get back to living life a bit more normally, at least when us foreigners aren’t coming in to screw things up. That means they’re getting out to explore their wild landscapes once again, which as you’ll see from this clip are amongst the most stunning on the planet. Shot entirely on the South Island, this short, but stunningly beautiful, clip will either help satiate your wanderlust for a bit, or kick it up a notch, making the stay at home naturally of our current lives just a bit more challenging.
