That's it, New Zealand is over for me. Until I return and that I shall! It's up there (I know I've said it before) as one of the top 5 countries I have travelledforget Oz get to NZ! I'm now in Auckland and I've just packed for the umpteenth time! I will update my written blog for New Zealand when I arrive in my next continent, South America.
I'm flying to Santiago, Chile this evening then onto Lima, Peru to meet my next overland group, new truck, new folk and four new countries, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil.
I've had an incredible time in NZ and spent the last week driving around the North island with Maff, we've been herding sheep, we've survived an earthquake (well a tremour) and melted in the sun.
Special thanks to Maff for flying half way round the world to spend a week with me and to Sara, Andrew, DJ and Penny for making us feel so comfortable in their home during the 3 times I've stopped over with them.
Sara I can't thank you enough. (Jen, thanks for putting me in touch with Sara. I'm gutted to miss you and Jo by a week, you'll love it here!!)
Dan and Donna congratulations on your engagement!!!
Dave Adams I appreciate you keeping me on the walls at Frome!
Ok best catch my flight to South America where I'll be 5 hours behind the UK I'm crossing the date line so will actually land before I take off if you get that...mad!!
Missing you all
