Oh the Places We’ve Left To Go


We know, as of this writing, our tour of New Zealand is at least 75% complete and the end is closing in rapidly.  For posterity, and for a little geography assistance, to date (zoom to see):

Now that the Rugby World Cup (taking place in New Zealand) is on, we get asked everywhere we go, “So, Here for the Rugby?!”  We’ve given up explaining ourselves and just say, “Yup!”  There will probably be no end to this question, as our planned departure is about when the Rugby ends. What do we still hope to see?

Coromandel Peninsula
Rotorua
Whangarei
Bay of Islands
Northland
Raglan
New Plymouth
Mt. Taranaki
Tongariro National Park
Te Uruwera National Park

And of course the question looms… where to next?  The Philippines?  SE Asia?  On a boat?  If we can’t set sail from NZ (looking unlikely due to timing again.  Argh!  Stupid hurricanes.), the cheapest flight will become very attractive.  Excited to be someplace new, and bit nostalgic to be leaving New Zealand! ♣
