- Boarding NZ10
Plane was pretty amazing to be honest but they did have some teething problems, they ran out of hot water and the Air Con packed up for like half an hour half way through the flight. Pretty severe Posted by Dentherese in Den & Therese Vegas Trip | May 10, 2016
- Routeburn RunWell that was awesome!
The run was scheduled for 8am Saturday morning and at 5am they postponed the race until Sunday because of concerns about weather (the forecast looked like snow, ice and 65kmh winds at the pass). Truly, the race Posted by Jennie-Bradley in Sabbatical 2015/16 | May 8, 2016

- Torchlight, Tuataras and ToiletsSo today we headed to the Deep South. We lost a lot of people off the bus this morning (not through death or mis placement, you understand, they just didn't come with us), and gained some other newbies.

- The cold never bothered me anyway...This morning I said goodbye to Westport with a heavy heart (not really) and thumping headache. Nothing a brisk walk at Foulwinds (the name DOES reflect the place) wouldn't sort out.
