New Zealand Beginnings

This is the beginnings of the New Zealand trip Rick and I took last November. Our daughter studied in Dunedin, NZ for a semester and we took the opportunity to see her and the land.

Follow me as I build this photo book of our trip. The scrap booking style I prefer is a large photo on the left side and a collage of my favorite photos on the right.

This first image is of Rick sitting on the right side of the car, preparing to drive on the left side of the road. I think this was possibly the scariest thing I have ever participated in. Much worse than teaching three teenagers how to drive.

Thank God my daughter knew where all the pubs were in Dunedin. We needed something rather strong to calm our nerves. Ha Ha

Kia ora is a Māori language greeting which has entered New Zealand English. It means literally "be well/healthy" and is translated as an informal "hi".

Kia Ora!

His driving was the reason we needed all those beers...
