cjlr goes to New Zealand
After spending 4-5% of my life in the United States, I'm finally taking some longer plane rides this summer. First up, New Zealand. My sister and her fiance are visiting for several weeks and invited me to join them for two of those. Yes, I've already heard the third wheel jokes.

Anyone else been there? Any experiences, good and bad? Recommendations? Et cetera? I'll only be on the North Island; we're starting in Auckland and meandering our way down to Wellington.

The only Kiwi forum members I can think of offhand are stevil (who doesn't like me) and Earmuffs (who is... Earmuffs). Not that I successfully managed to visit any American forum acquaintances when I was in their neighbourhoods.

Oh, and in case anyone's wondering, I was quite busy with schoolwork April/May, and thought I might get more work done if I didn't have this beloved forum constantly open in another tab. Might actually have been true - but less fun, to be sure.

You're going to the land of Earmuffs? Unsure

I'm sure it will be a great adventure! Have fun and take a bunch of photos! Thumbsup

Those films are a crime against classic literature.

...

Actually they're a fascinating way to see Jackson go through the same New Hollywood curve of failure someone like George Lucas did, only slightly faster.

Never read the books, might have enjoyed them when I was a huge fan of middle earth as a kid.

Kiwi's are awesome and NZ gorgeous.

An American friend is migrating there due to his being sick of the corruption in US politics. He'll be just a 2 hour flight away. I am stoked. Big Grin

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
