just hanging

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Haven’t even made it out of Auckland yet, but am already impressed with New Zealand. We were staying in this posh B&B in the middle of the “bush” with views of the ocean. The house was pretty much all windows, so it was like we were living in the middle of the forest. I haven’t heard that many cicadas since summer in southern Indiana.

We have spent most of our first days here hanging out with D. & M. and planning the rest of our trip to the south island. But we also managed to sneak in trips to surfing beaches, costal hikes and delicious fish and chips. Tomorrow we fly to the south island to see if New Zealand’s mountains live up to expectations.
