Can I Has Kiwiburger?

You know you want it and here it is. The New Zealand McDonald’s update. Any discussion of New Zealand McDonald’s has to start with the Kiwiburger. The slogan for the Kiwiburger is “Kiwiburger: That’s Our Tucker”. I have no clue what that means. I guess it is some sort of Kiwi slang that is supposed [...]

National Geographic Ain’t Got Nothing On Me

I have most of my New Zealand photos up now. (Well, I took over 400 photos, but I have what I think are the best ones up) You can view the New Zealand group here. i had a hard time taking photos in NZ because of the overcast skies. The good photos either didn’t have [...]

Kwik Update

I’m not going to Fiji tomorrow. I’m staying in Auckland two more days to get my act together and relax. I spent most of today just burning DVDs and hadn’t much time to do much else yet.

My Name is Matt Foley. I Am A Motivational Speaker. I am 35 Years Old, Divorced, and I Live In A Van Down In NEW ZEALAND

This is where I’ve been living for the last two weeks. The campervan is a pretty economical way to travel in New Zealand. The van cost NZ$39 per day and was a diesel, which sold for about NZ$0.97-1.04 per liter (there was also a NZ$3 per 100 km tax I had to pay at the [...]

Say YES! to Napier!

The reason is, back in the 1930′s, the town got hit by and earthquake, so when they rebuilt, everything had [...]

Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

I’m killing a few hours as I wait for the Wellington ferry in Picton and figured I’d rent some internet time. I got a lot of help from everyone before I came to New Zealand. If anyone has suggestions for what to see/do in Fiji, I’m all ears. I’ll be arriving in Fiji on June [...]

First Church of Jesus Christ Christchurch

Yesterday was a total bust. I drove way out of my way to get to Dunedin only to arrive too late to see any penguins or albatroses because the sun was setting and no more tours were going out. Throwing my hands up in the air, I said “screw it” and drove five more hours [...]

God Save the Queen(stown)

A quick update before I hit the road and drive off to Invercargill (home of Burt Munro!!) and Dunedin. A few weeks ago I had no idea I’d be in New Zealand right now. While I consider myself a pretty smart guy, I’m embarssed to say I had never heard of Milford Sound before I [...]
