What a huge distance - Shakespear from Stratford upon Avon to Stratford in New Zealand.
Culture is connecting people.

That's an attractive landmark, isn't it? It really catches the eye with its European appearance in rural Taranaki.

Great shot of the tower , Betty! Thanks for sharing the video too :)

Heidi R. said...

It's a shame, the tower is really a great attraction, but the traffic on the street is far too loud and annoying.
