Nancy Engel / December 2006
Good morning, Mark,
Sunday night here, our first full week home starts tomorrow. It was a fantastic trip; we can’t wait to go to the South Island. Maybe we’ll be able to go next December(if we don’t visit our other son in southern Africa).
The highlights for me, besides the sheer prettiness and splendid geography of NZ were: tubing in Waitomo’s cave, trip to White Island including dolphins swimming alongside the boat, drive on Highway 38 through Te Urewera National Forest journeying from Taupo to Gisborne(after stopping in Rotorua to luge and Taupo to bungee), and the three geothermal parks around Rotorua including Orekei Korako. If you asked the others their highlights they would include a day spent touring wineries(running into neighbors!), the food, the beach, the shopping, the museums, a picnic on the beach in Napier with food fromt the Farmer’s Market.
This trip was flawless. There is so much to see and do in NZ, that one two week trip doesn’t begin to touch it. We are excited to look at our photos as soon as Hertz sends us the camera we left in the car at the Auckland Airport.
