          ... at Auckland airport. He told us that he and his wife had really enjoyed their time in Nelson, and loved the house and the location.

          He said he has a contract to play in France until July, which he was really happy about. He'll be about two hours away from where his brother is playing. His parents have booked their flights for Christmas already!

          Flying over Aotearoa, there were indeed long white clouds everywhere ... until we got to the Top of the South. Sure, ...

          ... dress party at Lake Mahinapua. The choices included: gender swap, pensioners, superheroes, or dressing up as something with the first letter of your name. The last one won! It did seem like the coolest one, and the one where everybody would be most unique, but with only a few hours notice and only a one hour stop to find a cheap outfit - it was definitely the hardest of them all.

          ... spend the afternoon none the less. Day 15. Monday 30th March. Masterton to Cross Creek Wild Camp. It was a lazy start to say the least, and we didn't leave Masterton until after we had lunch in the lovely Queens Park in town. We covered the miles on sealed roads, stopped for a cheeky coffee in a nice little place called Martinborough - set amongst the many vineyards in the area - and pushed on to Cross Creek to camp. The final stretch approaching Cross Creek was fun, weaving ...

          ... Our last day in Nelson was spent on the Great Taste Trail, a biking path that takes you around to vineyards, craft breweries, cheese shops and even an organic peanut butter factory. Biking is always nicer when you have a destination, and when that destination involves drinking delicious wines the day flies by! We're now on our way to the east coast with our bags bursting at the seams with wine we picked up on the way. Not a bad ...

          ... to a place called Wild Earth. It was a petting zoo that boasted tame eels as its main attraction. It only cost $10 each and for that we got a bag of food and free roam of the field. There were goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, a donkey, a yak, a deer, an emu and many more! All the animals were really friendly and we were relieved to find out that they all lived in much larger paddocks when they closed and the owners had hand reared a few of them. Then came the moment ...
