Although a short stay, I had the pleasure of visiting New Zealand recently for a 5 day road trip alongside my world-traveling Uncle Mike (check out his incredible travel blog at  What a beautiful country!  We toured around the very north peninsula – basically everything north of Auckland.  Coastline, massive sand dunes, pristine cities, and a few million sheep (it was a very delicious trip).  Wink.

Stay tuned for my next blog entry with images from Sydney, Australia.
