The Final Countdown...

Victoria, Canada

I woke up this morning to a new reality...I'm on leave from work until November 2. Another new reality quickly took over...only 19 days until my departure date - April 5. Excitement and nerves make a strong cocktail!

Our planning started years ago when my rugby club decided to tour New Zealand in 2009. Norma and I heard opportunity knocking, and we have planned a seven-month journey together through NZ, Samoa and Australia.

I arrive in NZ with Ebb Tide RFC April 7 for a three-week six-game tour of the country where rugby is king. Norma arrives April 21 and will join the group for the final days of the tour - brave girl! We start our own adventures after we see the group off to Canada April 26.

Today is 'T minus 19 and counting'...not much time to tie up loose ends so I'd better get at it!

Arrived in Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand

In case you all wonder, we arrived safely in New Zealand after a small stop in Seoul. The trip was fine. Everything is fine except the internet access here in New Zealand. I will probably update this blog only when I will be back home.
So, do not forget, no news = good news.
