Matt and I wanted a road trip but we wanted a break from Trump's America. Next on the list was across Europe but three weeks of dodging sheep's brain didn't appeal.
A lovely chap in work suggested New Zealand and I was sold on the photos alone. Next challenge was to see if Matt was up for it.. I didn't say where - I just gathered the photos together and we played quiz. Who knew there were two islands... I didn't. I am confessing that I didn't know it was Australia's neighbor either - let's get the mocking over now.
We are already mentally packing.
Matt and I then watched lord of the rings, I know we are 17 years late to this party but I liked it a lot. Matt liked the scenery.
15 to 20 thousand earthquakes a year
Parrots that like to play in the snow
The Southern Lights (the northern lights just upside down)
for every pound you get two New Zealand dollars
4 million people and a few shed full of sheep
Flights are now booked, 35 hours there with a stopover of 12 hours in China (so we can stretch our legs). and 28 hours back.
