An awfully big adventure - meetup in New Zealand’s South Island anyone?

What a great adventure @Smiley NZ SI is my favourite place, after Queensland of course :slight_smile: Breathe in that very special air they have there across the ditch!

@Smiley I certainly hope you get some (hopefully all) meetups in the areas you are sitting. It is such a great thing to get to spend time with like minded furball lovers and you never know what type of friendships you can forge from just that one little visit.

Good luck and happy sitting!

Thank you @Crookie
I’ve arrived into Christchurch.
Must try to remember to do a meet-up when I’m in Brisbane

That’s some impressive planning @Smiley , well done. Wishing you a fantastic time in the land of the long white cloud. It was our home for 12 years (Arrowtown- a must visit place) and we still miss it daily. Go well.

I was planning to go to NZ this Saturday and travel around until Christmas. After 3 months of cold and rain in Australia I just couldn´t face more cold and rain in NZ so I rerouted. Going to Bali instead … where 15 days of rain are awaiting me in November. What a year. Getting second thoughts now.

@RadarInc it’s still Bali…maybe 15 days of off/on rain, but the rest of the time…HEAVEN! I am sure you will have a great time there. Are you doing a sit?

No, no sits. Not looking for any either. Just need to recharge and have some fun at my favorite watering hole (when it is not raining :wink: )

Have a great time. I was in Bali about 20 years ago and may well call in at some stage on this big trip

Thank you Sam. Hopefully nearly got through the jet lag now. Looks like you and John had a nice time in France recently.

@Smiley Yes we thoroughly enjoyed our sit there and had always wanted to look after Airedale Terriers so it was a win win! :dog::slightly_smiling_face:

That’s great! I had a young Airedale terrier near Tauranga, NI NZ. Quite a handful as young but good fun x

That would be lovely @snowfire and I’d be really interested to hear all about your previous job as a game warden and Alaska, as it’s on my bucket list for sure! I’ll add Wanaka to the list to explore while I’m here but don’t think I’ll have a car early-mid February. Keep in touch via message and good luck with your sits and travels
