Now that 2014 draws to a close, I decided to look back on all the things I've done and places I've been this last 12 months and post my personal 20 favorite images I've taken. It has been a pretty good year as I've visited 5 countries not including a layover in Australia.Read More
While planning our upcoming trip to New Zealand and doing lots of research I came across a part that said I would need: Chest X-ray Certificate INZ 1096.
