Here are a few pictures from the whole trip...these are randomly ordered. They are all from the last week or so...Taupo, Mt. Maunganui, Napier, and Rotorua. And the infamous camping pics! (Notice my expressions during camping =)). ... read more

HEY!! Things are looking up!! Karlene Jean may be coming out of her coma. The mechanic yesterday gave us much hope. We filled her up with some brand new oil and are keeping a close watch on her. I sure hope she makes it because we were planning to dress her up for the Holidays! Not to mention the fact that we have not even made it to the South Island yet...We will keep you posted, of course. Staying in Taupo for the next few days to see how she does. Speaking of Taupo...yesterday in my blog, I left out much of what has been going on in Taupo. We did indeed spend a few nights camping here. On day four we took Karlene in to be checked and got the horrible news. The mechanic at ... read more

Hey Everyone! I hope this blog works better than the last... It has been such a long time since I wrote, I don't even know where we left off, so I am going to give you the latest and greatest and then more randomness. First of all, it's Thanksgiving for you all right now, so HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Hope you ate good meals for Mary Kathryn and I because our "Thanksgiving dinner" was interesting to say the least. We had a campsite out by a beautiful river, The Wairakei River, which is Huka Falls is on. The falls are just amazing. Our Thanksgiving dinner was not so amazing. We made do, however. We even found another American to share some food with! About the Ole Miss game: Mary Kathryn and I were able to "watch" the Ole ... read more

Alright, I don't know why my blog wont' work properly. If you care, look at MK's. (nickname: mksharpe; real name: Mary Kathryn Sharpe) She just typed out a good description of what we have been doing for the past few days. I will try to get mine to work another time. We must move on now! Much Love! Eliza... read more

It's been so long since I wrote something, I am just going to give a short description of what we have been doing these past few days...car still working (it's a miracle). We have been all the way to the very top of NZ, Cape Reinga. It is supposed to be beautiful, and I am sure that it is, although when we got there, we were in the clouds and could not see a thing!! It was so disappointing. We camped out there and moved on the next day to the Bay of Islands. The islands are beautiful and MK and I finally got a "tramp" in along the beach! We took a ferry to Russell Island and went on another walk there. Every place here (except Auckland) is so small and really quaint. You definitely ... read more

Quick "Hey Y'all!!" I know there has been confusion about how to get to the blog. I don't know what the problem is and, sorry, I am not computer literate enough to really figure it out. It may be because I have not posted anything yet, so I am going to give a quick snippet of our day so far... We woke up really early to go to a Saturday car market with an Israeli boy we met yesterday. He is super nice and helpful! Luckily, we found a car from a crazy lady who is moving to New York to visit her son's father for the next 6 months. The car buying process is so crazy here. Basically, you go to a lot where there are a bunch of people doing the same thing we ... read more
