We are in New Zealand!! M&I are here with my mom and stepdad. After traveling for what seemed like forever, but was probably only 20 hours we made it. We lost Nov 11th in the process, but you would expect there to be some casualties on that long of a trip. Yesterday was tough. We got here into Auckland at 7:30 and in an attempt to get on track, we did some sight seeing. It was a very laid back day because we really didn’t have all that much energy. Needless to say, we all slept very well that night. We are all pretty good today. We are now in Kerikeri which is very north on the north island. The scenery is amazing so far. Beautiful blue skies, vivid green grass, and lots and lots of sheep and cows. Things seem in technicolor. Internet is not as easy to get to as I thought it might be so there may not be so many posts.
