I had a interesting 25 days in the land of the long white cloud over the holiday period. I am considering naming NZ the land of the long black cloud as it was raining most of the time and the weather was rather grim. Having said that I managed to get sun burnt within minutes of the sun popping out and that was a reminder that you must slip slop and slap the suntan lotion on when you venture out in the summer time.
I went fishing twice and I am disappointed to say that there was not even a bite. I am not what you'd call an amateur fisherman and I do know how to bait a hook and put the anchor down and up, but I guess that the Maori fishing calender was not on my side. I went to the fish market in downtown Auckland and brought what I should have caught anyway...Yummy.
It was great to catch up with everybody, and I managed to bring most of my favorite kiwi treats back in my suitcase, so I am sorted until next time.
