A thousand apologies to anyone who has been bored enough to catch up on what we've been doing, only to discover that it would seem we've been doing nothing for the last month.
Having been very kindly offered the use of Nic's mum's car, we converted the back of it into a bed, photo pending, and set off on a tour of the South Island in it. We've now been down here for about 3 weeks and having a fantastic time. Sadly though, we didn't get the time to install the full PC and Internet suite into the car so the experiences have been building up in our diaries so we can give you all a full and exciting account on our return to the North Island (and broadband PCs).
Hopefully in about a fortnight we'll be able to tell you all about the car, the ferry crossing, the wineries, rope bridges, thieving of camp site showers (just the water, all appliances left intact), pancake rocks and dinosaur egg rocks, Kiwis, Wekas and Wetas, the best village in the world, called Ross, our discovering of gold, touching of glaciers, kayaking with seals, jet boating, touring of brewery and Cadbury factory, hiding with penguins, the steepest street in the world, the most tranquil and deserted beach in the world, until the naked man turned up, and most recently and most excitingly of all, our going for a flying lesson in two planes at the same time and doing it all ourselves with co-pilots just sitting there beside us!
So hello to you all, and thankyou for checking up on what we're doing. We promise the full account in a fortnight.
Nic & Ross
