New Zealand – 1 June, 2010

Last day here in Sydney, off to New Zealand this afternoon.  I have a few things on the “to do” list while I’m there.  Right now I’m leaning towards a hot air balloon ride, whale watching tour, and visiting the national forests on the north side of the south island.  Then catch the ferry across to Wellington for a visit to the scene of the “Lord of the Rings” films!

I remember back in high school all the regular guys would go to the premier showing at midnight Thursday, to see the fanatics dressed up in their costumes.  Good times.

Met a few guys who are thinking about getting a camper van to drive up the east coast to Cairns when I get back to Australia!! That sounds like my kind of road trip.  Camping and surfing and enjoying the life.  I will know more in the next few days on that development.

Off to the zoo now! Time to play with the kangaroos!
