"CAUGHT IN HUTT!"

ARCHIVE 04!

Paying a visit!
22/02/2009


Planet Tours

 

Visiting for the day were passengers from

Planet Tours


Regular visitors to the Principality are one of Western Australia's leading Adventure Tour Companies, Planet Perth Tours.

Caught visiting on Sunday February 22nd 2009 were two units of Planet Tours ably led by their own Captains Mark and Michael who are charged with showing visitors around the State of Western Australia, ensuring they have a great time.

What made this visit a little different to the norm was not only that a Webmaster was present with his ever ready Fuji Digital camera to capture the moment, but so too was a three man television film crew here in the Principality filming an episode of a documentary series featuring Micronations around the world, contracted by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation

A great opportunity for the film crew to follow a larger group of visitors around on a guided tour, a tour in fact guided by HRH Prince Leonard and Princess Shirley themselves and a chance for those adventure tourists to gain fame on bot the television and computer screens around the globe having been featured in both the CDC documentary and the Principality website!

The photo's below will give some idea as to the events on this occasion.:...
