Today has been a great day and I just wanted to share my excitement. I live in the UK and have wanted to go to New Zealand for a long time now. I finally booked the time off and booked our flights. We are going in March 2010 for 4 weeks with 3 nights in Sydney and 2 nights in Hong Kong on the return. We will be hiring a campervan and bumming around NZ for 20 days so if anyone has been, lives there or has any recommendations please let me know :)
This year is also my *cough*30th*cough* birthday on September 11th. It's going to be a great birthday this year. On 10th I am seeing Tori Amos (again). The 11th will be spent doing a "hawk walk" where me and my husband will be handling and flying owls, hawks and falcons. The following day we are flying to Orkney to say in a cottage for a week. It's another place I have wanted to visit for a long time as it has the largest number of standing stones and Neolithic sites of interest in Northern Europe. Again if anyone has been please let me know any travel ideas etc.
To top off my birthday celebrations me and Mariel are having a joint Medieval Banquet at the beginning of October in a listed Medieval building near where she lives with a hog roast (plus veggie options). We are making it costume compulsory and I will post pictures afterwards. How exciting is all this!!!!!
