Day 868 Has it been this long already. According to my calculations it has been over a hundred days since my last entry. A lot has happened since then including Jenn's trip home.

We pick up the other people on the tour and there’s only six of us, all poms! We’re fairly flexible about the places we want to visit, some of the others are a little more prescriptive ("Cloudy Bay!") so we decide on a mix of boutique and corporate.
