  1. Omg you guys gave me a shout out at 6:05 – love that! Your videos are awesome and I’m so happy for your channel’s growth! Was such a pleasure to meet you both. Lots of love xx

    Also, thanks for the selfie! 😊🤳🏼

  2. New Plymouth is – by global standards – pretty clean, safe, good vibes.

    The number of clique-ey, insecure people, INCLUDING people with seemingly nothing to do, and gruff, unpleasant "dudes" gets a bit annoying. You could say that about anywhere. I'm just saying that for tourists it may be a region they enjoy travelling through, there's a reason the city dwelling citizens of of the country don't flock there permanently.

  3. You guys helped me experience a lost opportunity without even knowing you were helping a stranger in Canada! I visited this park in 2015 when I visited NZ to meet my kin there. The Taranaki area was of particular interest to me because one of my kin, Fanny Fantham, is the person for whom the subsidiary peak of Mt. Taranaki is named. She was the first pakeha (European) to reach that peak, although she did not ascend to the summit of the main peak. There is a bench in this park with a particular connection to another relative; a couple used to go to this park and sit on a specific bench from their first date until the husband passed away. When I visited this park in 2015 I was with my cousin, who was the daughter of the couple who loved that bench. I am disabled so my cousin and her partner wandered the park while I waited at the tea house for their return. I did find a massive maple leaf on a path that day, which made me slightly homesick, but I still have that leaf pressed in a journal. It was heartbreaking to not be able to stroll this stunning place, but this video allowed me to vicariously correct the loss of the experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  4. Hi Peter and Yen! Mt Taranaki really did resemble Mt Fuji so much that I literally said to my boyfriend that they copy-pasted Mt Fuji in New Zealand 😅

  5. Did you say Mishima is New Plymouth’s sister city? Or did I hear that completely wrong? 😅 Cozy and great price on your accommodation! Omg! Those cats are so adorable 😍 I remember seeing them on your Insta such cuties. I’m sure Peter could’ve done the climb in jandals 😆😆. Wow beautiful views of the Mount! Dumplings and noodles 😍 you guys are killing me as always with all the good Asian food. Pretty bridge! I can’t wait to visit all of these places you guys are travelling to.
