One Week To Go!!

The report cards are 95%!d(MISSING)one, the classroom is neater, the cat sitters are ready to go, I've dragged out my pack, called TravelEx about picking up New Zealand currency, almost booked the first week of travel on the North Island, and set up my travel blog! (WELCOME! And ENJOY!)

I've waited four years for this trip, and I am so excited to see Sarah and finally meet Justin. When I realized that I couldn't make their Easter wedding, I had to make this my summer adventure. Or one of them

The Itinerary of Sorts

Fun with Sarah! Maybe a Rover Ring Tour to satisfy the Tolkien addict in me
