  • ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK TO

  • "RETURN TO NEW ZEALAND: A MAGICAL LAND WHERE HUGS STILL

  • HAPPEN."

  • FOLKS, THERE IS NO DENYING THE SHEER BEAUTY OF NEW ZEALAND'S

  • NATURAL LANDSCAPE.

  • DURING MY VISIT, I GOT TO EXPERIENCE NEARLY EVERY

  • GEOLOGICAL FEATURE ON THE PLANET-- RUGGED MOUNTAINS AND

  • GRASSY HIGHLANDS; BEAUTIFUL LAKES AND OCEAN SHORELINES; AND

  • EVEN STUNNING, PRISTINE GLACIERS.

  • BUT THE ONLY THING THAT STRUCK ME MORE THAN THE MAGNIFICENT

  • BEAUTY OF THE COUNTRY WAS THE GRACIOUSNESS OF THE PEOPLE.

  • THE KIWIS I MET WERE NOT ONLY WARM AND WELCOMING.

  • THEY WERE ALSO FUN-LOVING AND CREATIVE, STRONG AND TALENTED.

  • AND, OF COURSE, THOUGHTFUL AND DECISIVE.

  • THERE WERE TIMES DURING MY VISIT THAT I HAD TO REMIND MYSELF OF

  • MY GOOD FORTUNE.

  • IN FACT, THERE WAS ONE MOMENT, WHEN I WAS STANDING ON THE PEAK

  • OF AN 8,000-FOT MOUNTAIN, LOOKING OUT AT THE LANDSCAPE

  • AND, ADMITTEDLY, HAVING JUST DONE THREE SHOTS OF BOURBON--

  • IT'S A LONG STORY ABOUT HOW MUCH I LIKE BOURBON-- THAT I FOUND

  • MYSELF SO OVERWHELMED WITH GRATITUDE THAT I WISHED I COULD

  • SHARE IT WITH AN OLD FRIEND.

  • JUST IN CASE WE INVENT TIME MACHINES I WANT THIS MESSAGE TO

  • BE SENT IN A CAPSULE BACK TO MYSELF WHEN I WAS 29 AND HAVING

  • A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN ABOUT CHOOSING TO BE A PERFORMER FOR A

  • LINK.

  • YOU DIDN'T MAKE A MISTAKE NOT GOING TO LAW SCHOOL.

  • IT'S ALL GOING TO WORK OUT.

  • YOU'RE GOING TO DO THINGS WITH YOUR FRIENDS, LIKE GO TO NEW

  • ZEALAND AND DO THIS, OKAY.

  • DON'T FREAK OUT.

  • GET OFF THE COUCH.

  • YOUR SKIN'S NOT ON FIRE.

  • THE XANAX WASN'T WORKING, BY THE WAY.

  • TRUE STORY.

  • ( LAUGHING ) THANKS, STEPHEN.

  • IF I COULD SEND A MESSAGE BACK TO THAT SLIGHTLY YOUNGER VERSION

  • OF ME FROM THE END OF 2019, I'D SAY, "DON'T LEAVE NEW ZEALAND.

  • THEY FIGURE OW OUT HOW TO CONTAIN THIS THING THAT WILL

  • START SPREADING AROUND THE WORLD IN ABOUT A MONTH.

  • I KNOW YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT AND THIS SOUNDS

  • CRAZY, BUT BELIEVE ME, BUY TOILET PAPER.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
