Kia Ora -- Welcome!
This site is dedicated to some of the most friendly people on earth - the people of New Zealand. As you wander through the pages I think it will be immediately obvious how much we fell in love with this beautiful country and the terrific folk who live there.
When finished, it will contain the series of emails I sent to friends and family during the course of 30 days we spent touring the South and North Islands. Masses of photos we took and the itinerary of our trip will be added. I'm also planning on including some detailed information on various areas, some of the history, personal impressions and observations, comments from several of our new New Zealand friends, links to a number of very interesting New Zealand sites, and much more. Please bookmark the page and keep checking back as I'll be spending the next few months putting it all together.
