Bren and Kate's travels!
Hello! We have to be quick so this is just a brief note to let you know what we are up to. We spent 3 days in Sydney and saw the opera house, harbour bridge, etc... We are now in New Zealand and have been here for almost a week. We started in Auckland and picked up our campervan which has a dvd player, yeah! We went down to Hamilton and through to the Waitomo Caves where we went on a trip to see the glowworms and saw some of the most beautiful scenery, picture lord of the rings and you are there! We stayed there a couple of days and then went down to New Plmouth and onto Stratford which is where we are now. Today we have been exploring in Egmont National Park. We went to Dawsons Falls where you walk right to the bottom of the waterfall and then we did a long walk that took us to Wilkies Pools. We climbed up the side of the stream and saw the best view possible of Mt Taranaki (the picture above). It is covered in snow at the mo and it is really hard to describe just how amazing it looked. The walks actually take you onto the bottom of the mountain. New Zealand appears to be the exactly what everyone says about it and we already want to come back and see what we are going to miss! Hope everyone is good, write more soon xx Tom - We are glad you like your present, it was really really expensive to post (!) and pleased you had a good day. Give beth a kiss from both of us, missing you loads, Say hi to your mum and dad! Shannon - Hey, how are you? We hope you are really enjoying school and that you are top of the class already! Give Freya kiss from us, missing you loads, xx Ben - We have already left Auckland thank you but will be in Wellington in about a week or there abouts. I asked Mum to get you to email your notes to me, so thanks! Bren was wondering where to do the skydive from. Hope all is good, let us know if you think of anything else we should do xx
