Looks great andsome. Some good memories forever when you go somewhere like that.

A friend of ours down the pub emigrated to New Zealand but came back to look after his ailing Mother. Even though duty has now been done, he says he won't be returning to New Zealand.

On asking why, he said that the scenery is marvellous but in the end admiring the scenery and walking was all there was to do and he'd got fed up with it. Mind you, it did take him over 25 years to get fed up with it. smile

She has a job at Lookout Lodge in Wanaka South Island waitressing to earn her skiing money. She went in September for six months,then changed that to seven, then to a year, now she hopes to be home for Christmas, stopping off in India first.
