Just a note to say that we will be coming home early from New Zealand by a few days, it’s not a huge change, but it means that this will be my last update while in New Zealand. When I get home there will be a few more, just rounding it up, posting some unseen […]


Hey. My last post was about a visit to an island. So is this one. But that one was a barren, moonlike surface devoid of all life. This island,on the other hand, is covered with a layer of thick trees, and on it dwells a large variety of flora and fauna seldom seen outside New […]
