hi everyone sorry for delay but its been a little busy since the oldies arrived... the casmper van is a little smaller that i imagined (got be careful what i say as they will read this when i get back !!!!).
i have the top bunk ! they have the rest of the van !
they are having a great time and are also speding way too much money......
we left auckland and travelled to rotorua where moored up next to a gorgoeus lake and then went on the mt ruhepu (something like that). this is a volcano (nz has lots of them). which erupted and spilled its entire contents all over the surounding area... not lava some other stuff... so being pommie tourists we decdied that we would just have to get to the top.. all very exciting.. listeeninbg very carefully for any rumblng sounds !
then on to wellington and over the marlborough sounds which were stunning. then on to kaikora where we saw two sperm whales up close and personal... awesome...but not quite as scary as seeing them when saling at night....
then as we were leaving we saw a pod of over 1000 dolphons.. now that was stunning. also managed to kayak amonsgt fur seals.. phew they were a litttle smelly....
then up and over the mountains to lake tekapo which is just so blue is unbeleiveable.
then on to queenstown .. fell in love with it staright away.. been lugeing shotover jet which is the legendary fass jet through the canyons.. even got mum on that !
then  did a paraglide from 3000 feet... (thats runnning off a cliff attahced to a large kite and instructor... awesome.. followed that with river surfing... surfing a fast flowing river on a body board.. not so good got slammed and lost a tooth ! it really hurts..
anyway pizza has been ordered.. check out the photos.
be good evryone keep i n touch
i have to really think about coming home soon !

Now Look Here
Well your camper van is bigger than your boat & think how many people you have on that.(Most of them stagger a lot as well!)
Whats happened to your exams? Or was all this an excuse for a huge jolly.
Look I need you back to come sailing. I'm getting bored with taking the same women out on the boat. I need a change. Please come back and lets get drunk. You can bring your friends too.
Take care and I hope the tooth fairy left you some gold. Why is the seat on glider thing wet?

Look after the oldies!!!!!
As you overlook all the wonderfull scenery in NZ, I am overlooking Dover Harbour - what a shit hole!!! Your comments about you sailing at night sacres me i know how bad you are in the day. Bet the seals breathed a huge sigh of releif as you passed by them without - i hope hitting any of them, know you are not that good at navigating! Glad you are having fun. Look after Mum & Dad and we send you all our love. Keep thinking about coming home life here in the UK is just great!!!!

Hi Girl!
We really don't care what you're getting up to - no, not at all, no!
Alright then, we're jealous. We admit it.
You keep on taking care, love to Mum and Dad.
I'm not even going to mention the exam?
