I dream of Fiji

Here is an outline of what I’ll be doing the next few weeks: I’ll be a week on Fiji mostly diving and being a bum. From Fiji, I’ll be flying to Apia, Samoa where I’ll say for about 3 days. From there it is a bit up in the air. Apia is the only place …

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 …

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.

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 …

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 …
