“Don’t leave town until you’ve seen the country!”
Imagine going to some exotic location overseas and some asks you a question about your country. You are embarrassed because you have not even heard of that place.
Most people would never have heard of Lake Ngaroto either. Yet it is one of many in the Waikato district. This is a farm by the lake.
I think its also a great thing to be a tourist in your own country. Believe it or not, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. However, I also believe the planet earth is huge and beauty is all around the earth in every place. You just need to see it or seek it.
