We have bought our ticket to NZ today and committed ourselves to some hard graft for the last leg of our trip, as well as visiting some amazing scenery and enjoying the beauty of the islands. Our good friend Fran visited NZ a few years ago and it had such a profound effect on him that he will happily waffle on enthusiastically (with a dangerous far off glint in his eye) for hours and hours about the natural wonders of the place well until closing time if you let him. The knack is to stop listening to him, or try to change the subject; but it was mainly due to Fran's accounts of New Zealand that we'd decided to give it a go, and as we both enjoyed being outdoors in wonderful surroundings (the Quantock hills are pretty amazing for that) the idea of WWOOFing really appealed to us. So, on the 25th March we'll be leaving the hot, humid heat of summer in Malaysia for the beauty and colour of Autumn in NZ and in June, return to the wet, miserable summer in England!! Smart!!
