We got back from New Zealand about two weeks ago and I think I’m finally caught up on work! Right this very minute I’m offloading 6000 of the 7000 pictures we took while we were there. I was able to whittle the other 1000 down to about 400. I think a huge Flickr upload is going to happen soon. 😉
The trip was absolutely amazing. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Every day was sunny and beautiful! We hung out in Auckland, went blackwater rafting at Waitomo, saw Mt. Taranaki, played frisbee at Otaki Beach, chilled out in Wellington, took the ferry to Picton, went dune buggying in Greymouth, flew by helicopter from Fox Glacier and landed on the Franz Josef glacier, paraglided off of Coronet Peak in Queenstown, riverboarded in Queenstown, cruised Doubtful Sound, and hung out in Christchurch before heading back to Auckland.
I made notes throughout the entire trip and plan on posting more detail soon. First, I need pictures. Just telling you about it won’t do it justice.
I really miss New Zealand coffee.
