more NZ stuff and 5 favs)

well its friday and thought i would quickly do my 5 favs all the way from NZ.. Yep there have been way more then 5 but i guess i will do the real 5 so far

1..the alps as we flew in, They were so amazing.. I saw them from about 20 mins or more before I knew what they were..thought it was cloud (guess the name land of the long white cloud)..they were awesome.. so clear and amazing..

2.. the seals at the pool at Ohau (i think that is it) there are heaps of Maori names.. and can't quite get my mouth and brain around them) They were so cute..friendly even..playing and having fun. If I went back i reckon if you took a ball they would play with it)

3/.. the views..the one at Kiakoura from the town..the sea and the mountains and snow so amazing.. yesterday as we travelled through the mountains Bulla pass I think it was mountains. They do vertical very well..then the drive from westport to here at Punnikiki..WOW..very rugged coastline but majestic..even though it was drizzling rain..

4.. the pancake rocks and blowhole here at Punikiki..to be seen to be beleived..it was wet and miserable but still was just incredible..and afterwards went to the local tavern for a wine or 2 and sat inf ront of the fire..gorgeous.

5..the wekas a local bird. About the size of a bantam hen and are described as a bush fowl..similar in colouring to a kiwi.. one frightened the heck out of me at cape Foulwind as I was getting in the car..almost hopped in with me..Al is still laughing about it ans is one of his personal favz..!!!

Well thats it..got to keep going..love to all..we are loving this and the things we are experiencing..hope to read your 5 favs next time I am on..

Here we are

Its Monday and we are having an amazing time..seen so much..Deer, Alpacas and seals everywhere. Just come back from this amazing walk where there were baby seals frolicking (about 12 or more) in the base of waterfall. Rolling jumping etc.. Had crayfish.. just amazing. On to Blenhem tomorrow and wine country. this town is like a canadian town (well we really dont know that but imagine that is what it is like) Snow covered mountains at the end of the street.. beautiful..
Loving it all..will write longer soon

Anyway just wanted to let you all know that (if somehow you had missed it) I am off to New Zealand tomorrow. So excited..and so much to do. My poor scarf is too short..my drugs neeed picking up, packing to do..so what do i do??/ blog..what else..
I haven't been able to work out how to blog from my iphone..much to my disgust so will have to rely on internet cafes.. (if they have such luxuries..really just joking!!)
My next blog will be in a foreign country..yep foreign. Hoping I can master the language..
Love you all and know I ma so excited. Please pray for good weather, good health, for finances and safety and for our 3 weeks to feel like 3 months..
Thanks guys love you all..and I would do my 5 favs but it would just be a repeat of last week... NZ.. NZ.. NZ etc etc.
