FIJI | Monday, 29 Dec 2008 | Views [977]

So, this is my last N.Z entry before I come home and bore you all by telling the same stories all over again. I can't really believe how fast the past 11 months have gone, it feels like a few days ago I was saying goodbye to you all. I'm so excited to ... Read more >

From Picton we spent some time in the Malborough Sounds- truly spectacular although a pity we could hardly see them for all the cloud... still where we were staying had a scottish themed pub and open fire which kept us cosy and out of the rain- was a ... Read more >

Quite a lot to catch-up on, though we haven't moved around much in the past weeks. Spent about a week at the campsite in Taupo as we loved it there... I felt quite a part of the family as the owners were so friendly and were pretty much responsible for ... Read more >

From Ahipara we crossed back to the Bay of Islands to Kerikeri, where we had arranged to spend weekend with one of Tom's old teachers. Was great being in a family environment again, though it did make me feel the most homesick since I've been here...... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 28 Jan 2008 | Views [656]

Ok, after doing all the touristy Rotorua things like the geysers, thermal pools and even took a gondola up to the top of a luge and rode down (fun but I was so slow little children were overtaking me) we decided we needed to go somewhere a little less ... Read more >

So it's our last proper day in Auckland before we make a move and really start exploring and although Auckland is a really fun city it will be nice to actually see the country properly- if all goes according to the present plan (which changes everytime ... Read more >
