I still want to be back there, and I intend to go as soon I have finished my degree (as I can't go during - unless I take a year out to work over there....now that is an idea!) However to be realistic I wish to go over there when I graduate as I don't want to leave it another ten years until I go back there again. (I went there as a child as my half-brothers Dad is from Auckland.)
It is odd how some of the people that live in New Zealand want to leave like my brothers Dad and yet me, my Mum and Nicola all want to go there. I guess some people don't want to stay where they grew up, or just like a change of scenery. (Seeing as New Zealand has the prettiest scenery in my opinion no wonder I want to go there - it's probably what makes winters more depressing seeing all the ads on telly for the beautiful country!) :)
Anyway I have now uploaded a few more New Zealand albums to Picasa, I really wish I had taken more photo's alas the camera was on loan and I didn't have a big enough memory card. The last time I was there all the photo's were on film, so I would have to scan that lot in, and that in and that takes a lot of time... :)
Meanwhile here is a sample of the photo's from Devonport and the trip up to the top of North Head. After getting the photo's up I shall get the travel journal typed up, that way I have a digital and a paper copy of that wonderful trip.
However now I need to actually get up and do something productive today, just sat and had a good chat with Nicola thanks to the wonders of Skype, she has gone to bed to get up early tomorrow to be proactive (different time zones) I should follow her lead. (The being proactive not the going to bed, as it's three in the afternoon for me!)
