Sauvignon Blanc and Mom
Not much to comment on when you're surrounded by vineyards producing, in my humble opinion, the greatest affordable white wine in the world. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is to die for and do not leave without an extensive tasting. This must be the first non-lunatic comment that I have made so far but be not affeared it won't last! There's probably still a residual memory of the BIG MAC revelation. Whilst sanity prevails I'll hand over the keyboard to mater. Mum here. About time I had some input. Lovely, lovely blogs. I'm so impressed with you both, Ooh! The south island. Can't wait to hear how you get on. Memories of Franz Josef very scary. Don'y do anything too fearsome - ah too late you already have.!! Love mum x x x

Justice is served/Queenstown beware
I note that the crime of BIG MAC consumption has resulted, despite my warnings, in justice being served by Dario being bitten by the dreded "Rafting bug and clearly infecting all those around him. I am however relieved to see photographic evidence that you have obtained and applied the recommended salve as witnessed by the attraction of a large muscular dog called Bruno. All should be well in 48hrs. I note that you are heading for the South Island and wonder if Queenstown, the world capital of extreme sports should be warned of your impending arrival so that they can all run for cover and close up for the season. Love and admiration from all in Worcester.xxxxxx

Doom and the Rafting Bug
As I read your Taupo region blog the cerulean sky has suddenly dissipated as storm clouds and lashing rain descend at the mere sign in print of the heinous act of entering the very portals of hell and consuming a BIG MAC. I shall have to take to my bed to recover but before doing so and whilst sufficient strength remains perhaps I might suggest some form of absolution in a trip to Turangi where I understand it is possible to go white water rafting. It the sort of madness that you seem to enjoy. However beware! There is a rare but virulent insect known as the "Rafting Bug", one bite from which will cause severe skin and hair discolouration. The latter turns yellow, the arms become a gangrenous green and there is severe in flammation and reddening to the chest. This results in constriction of the blood vessels to the lower region giving a blue effect to the midriff and a tightening of the skin on the legs which go black. From a distance this gives the impression of wearing tights. Should these symptons arise, and they are highly contagious, seek out the nearest pharmacy and ask for a large pot of Fenugreek and Cade Oil Ointment. Spread liberally over the body and a cure will be effected within 48hours. The only side effect to this treatment is the smell emanating from the unguent is attractive to large muscular dogs whose owners will have undoubtedly provided them with such machismo appelations as Fang, Bruno or similar. I'm off now to take my blood pressure tablets in the hope they will reduce the stress created by the BIG MAC reference. Much love from us

If you have the time go to Akoroa to the west of Christchurch, the view from the top is well worth the journey, can't miss Queenstown and if you go down soth the Dunedin peninsular is outstanding, have a great time.

Denial...
Early denial offered re pony tail! Dario would also like it known that he also stood on the glass at the top of the Skytower although a short time later had to purchase "Skytower Undies" from the gift shop to change into.

I feel a book coming on
Seven blogs arrived in the last 48hrs. having minor problem with server(now corrected). Wow, crumbs, golly gosh, holy mackerel and other expletives indicating envy, wonderment and amazing admiration for your endeavours to date. We are particularly impressed by your diving expertise and the pictures of the Great Barrier reef should be featured in the National Geographic magazine.(Please don't tell us that is where they came from!). Of course they didn't since they feature the lovely Hannah transmuting into a grouper and Dario looking very fetching in black rubber.(Well its better than the pink tee shirt). Now that he has become Dario does this mean he will grow hair and return with a pony tail. This is causing some concern and an early denial would be appreciated. Well done Han for standing on the glass panel on the Auckland tower. Your Mom crawled around the edge. Know what you mean about the Hydrogen Sulphide aroma of Rotorua. I was constantly accused of not changing my socks. Such foul calumny. What means of transport are you using now that Bertha has departed? This and other questions will no doubt be answered in the next episode of Dario the Magnificent and Hannah-Antipodean Wonder Woman.

I am absolutely speechless, the very big fish that you had on your shoulder, Anneka Rice swam with one and fed it boiled eggs.

Hair shirts
Deeply concerned that Dave appears to have forgotten to pack any shirts as the only two that appear on your bloggs are either of the hair variety or a shocking pink one that seems to double as a bathing head scarf for Hannah.Witness the picture at Katherine Hot Springs. This simply won't do when you return to civilisation as the only place dave can wear that shocking pink number will be in a Gay Bar and we can't be having that now, can we? Please Hannah equip the poor chap with at least one decent shirt when an opportunity presents itself. One minor criticism from the petrolheads amongst us. No picture of Junior who reliabley transported you,even on fumes,through rough terrain in sub-tropical conditions. Hope Bertha does not suffer the same fate.

G'Day Dave Bruce and Han Sheila
Hope you are both well; it's evident that the pictures speak for themselves, looks like you are having the time of your life. When your travel blog came through yesterday, I was in Rainy Grangemouth; a stark contrast to where you are, should have sent a picture of the Chemical plant I was near, nice. Your comments and commentary are fantastic. Happy travels, take care. Darren.
