We havn't gone AWOL

Sorry folks but the lack of posts recently has been due to me being completely frustrated with chasing the internet.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing and you learn as you go along. For anyone considering travelling New Zealand then buy Telecom not Vodafone as we had Sheila's sister with us for a week and she had no trouble at all with purchasing and using a Telecom sim.
Our Vodafone on the other hand was like feeding a one armed bandit with a mask on. That was when it had a signal which was not too often.
Also there are numerous local free internet sites to use for short periods of time like Tomizone in Auckland or Zem-bu for examples and the purchase of further bandwidth is a reasonable price. So check them out before splashing out as we did on a dongle.
Well i have lots of posts in draft form that i will revamp and then release when we get home. Cheers.

Thanks Gibson,
Hopefully we will not feel too jet lagged.
Not looking forward to the 30 hour trip back though.

There's a bloomin' great big boat behind you... You could take the slow boat home - I bet they'll have internet.

Looking forward to hearing more when you get back - Safe trip!

Hi Al,
Yes, what an absolute beauty. I would love to take 6 weeks coming home on that. I’m sure the internet will be fast too.
