Have that one dream place? If you could have a ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go? For me, it has always been New Zealand. Mom and Dad got married there. It is all over every adventure travel guide. The All-Blacks won the last World Cup. Lord of the Rings. What's not to lust about that place?
