Jessica Waugh is my bff and shared your blog with me as...
my husband's job will entail he and I and our youngest daughter ( 17 yo ) to live in Tekapo from Nov. 27th - April 2nd! ooooh-weee! Kallie (daughter) and I can hardly wait for the adventure of a lifetime. Unfortunately John will be working 24/7, but still an experience. Our 2 older children ( Jack - at U of R, and Leah - at JMU ) will be able to spend their Christmas breaks with us. Upon telling Jessica the news she immediately forwarded your info/blog to us. So, thank you for the beautiful pictures which has only wetted our appetites further! Safe travels home. Lynn

Simply Amazing
Yet more amazing pictures and you are both looking more relaxed as each week passes. Clearly the wonders and pace of life that NZ offers suits you perfectly! Your blog from this trip has been such fun to read and to share your adventure with you - thank you! If time, please add a few more photos of Philip & his family so I can see if he's ageing as fast as I am.

What a country!
Yet again you have published another set of wonderful photos capturing both people and landscapes in full glory. I especially love to see current photos of my dear old brother (technically slightly younger) and his lovely partner and of course Luca and Lola. Enjoy the rest of your trip and your time together.

I want to be a "FIT TRAMPER" and experience this beautiful place, too. Of course part of the great experience is the lovely family! The wedding day is only 2 days off now-pretty exciting! Marge is doing well and has received your postcards. Will copy some of your photos for her after the event. Love to all. Mary Lou and Ken

What a wonderful trip!
John and Ann, So happy to see that you are having such a wonderful time. The picture of Lola with the rainbow is priceless, which I'm certain helped to make the bountiful rain more tolerable. Please keep the stories of your endeavour and images with smiling faces coming in! Your decidedly unfit tramper :) Todd

Too Hot in Va.
Looks like you are getting around, and enjoying the grand children, they look a lot of fun. The weather here is so hot, you are not missing that Iam sure. Peter and I are doing inside jobs, but I will be going to the beach in September, hope the weather cools. the beaches in New Zealand look wonderful, makes you wonder what we are all doing in this part of the world. Will keep in touch . Linda and Peter.

Blog Exchange: Home Schoolers actively seeking NZ Geography/History/Politics
Thank you for sharing your blog. We are currently using your site as a homeschooling opportunity. It's a nice break from preparing for our travels to Eire in late September and early October. If you have any books pertaining to the history or -story of NZ (7 yrs - 13+ yrs; caution: our oldest reads on a college level so bring it on; we can always save your book idea for a readaloud!). We especially enjoyed looking at the Southern Hemisphere and the Southern Cross when we visited El Nido, Palawan, Phillipines Winter 2012! That was a big hit for the entire family to view 'our heavens' from a different vantage point. Carpe Diem! Send any Night Skies you have and climate research (only if able and comfortable doing so) for our Nature Notebooks a la Charlotte Mason (Ambleside Online). Thanks for sharing. Our nature loving tomgirls get a kick out of 'knowing someone for real in NZ'! the dulog crew (E,S and L included)
