Its been a wonderful summer connecting with people friends and places. The South Island has always been a special place for my family and my heart goes out to those of you affected by the Christchurch earthquake sequence. As my son and I found out its got some very exciting daytrips and wonderful cuisine and accomodation – grab a plane ride south its still a wonderful destination for a kiwi summer holiday.
