    It is so beautiful. Where else have you been in New Zealand? We really want to go back. It feels as though we just scratched the surface. Hope you are having a wonderful time. Is it cold?

    Hi Carol! We’ve been to a lot of the South Island and today we begin on the North. The weather hasn’t been the best…hoping for some more sunshine this week so we can go bike riding!
