It sounds like you are having a fab time and have settled into the way of life whilst on the road . Reading about your Auckland to Taupo adventures is bringing back lots of great memories of when I was there....it seems so long ago!!!! I am nursing a hangover today having been out celebrating Chris' sisters 18th last night. I just can't keep up with the young ones any more . This picture just about sums up how I am feeling!!.
Take care and carry on having lots of fun.
