Mountains in New Zealand

A week split into two – first half fantastic, second half awful.


And so, after almost 18 months, I am reunited with my Dad!


Work done, check. Matamata visited, check. Arrival of Don Mandaluff, pending.

Two incidents – one very tragic, one bizarre punctuated my week in Auckland.

Two instances of chance meetings have shaped my travels in the past few days.

Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and Kaikoura and some sad goodbyes.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better… I arrived in Queenstown!
