Think it's just cost, recession, and timing.
Nz was always going to be a stretch, money or time I doing if have both and wouldn't want it to be a dash in and out for the money. It would probably cost me 4x what South Africa did and for that the Maldives wins over. H being sawn up more times than Debbie McGee over the past few years has meant that forays into foreign lands have been limited.
Looking forward to Euskadi next year and Lithuania.
