MSNBC: ‘Return of the King’ fever grips city — New Zealand’s capital prepares for movie premiere I wish I was in Wellington for all of the fun. Heck, I wish I was in New Zealand period. As a kid I was fascinated by the country (I loved geography as a late elementary & junior high schooler), I think mostly from the pictures in my family’s copy of the World Book Encylopedia of the country. It seemed like such an enchanting place.

Now that I’m older I still really dig the place and hope to get to go there some day. I really dig their nuclear free stance and their general more peace-loving vibe that they have, as compared to the US or even Australia.
