    I had to get up at 5.30am today to catch the ferry across to the South Island. I'm excited to see what the South Island is like as I hear really good things about it, it's meant to be even more pretty than the north!

    Once we had gotten over to the South we stopped at Malborough valley to have a wine tasting session. I got to try 3 whites and 2 reds, so glad it was small glasses otherwise ...

We'll have time for dinner and sightseeing on both days and are looking forward to meeting up with Ruth, whom we know from living in Mangonui, NZ, and with Sandra, with whom we taught in Vietnam.
