Sadly it was...but I am hoping the next time will be a lot more to my own choosing, families it's great to get out to see them but they have a habit of wanting to do a lot of other things (and as I'd never been before well I guiess it was inevitable I'd end up doing other things).
Had an outstanding time tho, stunning country you have there!
I just hope it's not too long until I can return.
Hi Nuuumann, I was over for about 3wks, I've a bro in Auckland luckily this year it all (just about) worked out money-wise.
Amazing place, got a look at Queenstown Mt Cook in the sth island too.
Hopefully it'll not be so long until I can go back, maybe in '15 (I'm hoping).
"Those who cannot remember the pasta are condemned to reheat it"; with apologies to George Santayana...Tired of that now. Changed my siggy because I seem to be wanting to say my new one outside of the forum quite often these days.
