Ok so we'll start by apologizing...!
We thought we should do one now as we're off to Fiji on Sunday for 1 week then Cook Islands for 1 week..so will probably be pretty out of contact.
We are still having an awesome time, have spent 2 wonderful weeks with ther parents down in Queenstown in their lush new house which was exceptional....some treat and not having to shower in my thongs was a ridiculously special treat... We ventured down to the Catlins after that and stay ed in a pretty scary hostel but the view from opur room was out of this world....onto Surat bay with the seal Lions and seals hanging out and playing...lots of walking for 2 whole days then up to Oamaru to see the Penguins again. Stayed at the most incredible backpackers and saw a cute little family of yellow Eyed Penguins they were sooo cute! And only a short but very chilly walk from the hostel! We then dropped our car back and picked up a relocation car for a great deal and headed up the east coast. Our last night in South Island was spent at Tombstone backpackers which was outstanding...I was so sad to be leaving but on our nice calm boat ride we saw dolphins so it was very special...
We then stayed just north of Wellington in the strangest backpackers ever that had a really good rating...go figure?! Then drove up to taupo yesterday...today it is Rotorua and then Auckland to leave on Sunday at 7am...boo! We are both so sad to be leaving NZ and have had the most incredible 9 weeks here...and we are DEFINATELY coming back!!!
We will try to put some of the 8 zillion photos we have taken on before we leave so make sure you check out the NZ albums just in case...Home in 5 weeks today arghh!! Cannot wait to see everyone!
