Last Days in NZ

Hey, well our time in NZ has basically come to an end. From White Island we drove up the coast and stopped off at some small towns along the way and ended up at the bay of islands in the far north. Ideally we'd have done a boat trip but we didn't have much time or money left so we just drove around and went swimming and sunbathed a bit. Yesterday we drove to Auckland and got rid of our car, 5600Km worse off than when we got it (We only had it 21 days, do the maths on that one!) Auckland isn't the most exciting place in the world so we've done a lot of walking around, went to see Munich last night (Pretty good film) and went over to Devonport on the ferry. Tonight we're going to the -5 bar which is carved out of ice and you have to put on thick clothes and drink vodka out of ice glasses, sounds fun. Tomorrow we get up at 4am! and fly to Fiji. We're scheduled to be there a week but it seems to be raining a lot so me might go to California a bit earlier. Only a month left now, i'll be back with you all before you know it!

I hoped you'd be going to that -5 place, it sounds pretty cool (do you see what I did there?). I'd say steal me a souvenier shot glass but that'd be pretty stupid.

Thanks for the ski jacket loan, have fun in the States.

Is that the same ski jacket I saw you selling on ebay Macca?

Ash, you've got to go to six flags when you're in California, the Superman ride is *quite fast*.

Enjoy the laughter while you can Tomo, the work'll be over in 3 weeks and then publication is but a few pages away, 1st authored by my supervisor unfortunately, but you can't win 'em all.

Oh, and we don't talk about 'the woman' any more

Yeah i'd like to do six flags, is there one near LA or San Fran?

Have been in Fiji 3 days now. (Staying at the beach house binx) Chilling out after the rigours of NZ and psyching oursleves up for the last leg of the journey (basically lying on a beach and eating food which we haven't personally prepared, marvellous.) The weather isn't great though so i'm finally writing up my diary of Australia.

Can we keep the geeky PhD acronyms to a minimum please boys, this is a family blog.
