The last two and a half months!

Well we are back! I have finished my yoga teacher training and have left the ashram and we are back online! So we will attempt to bring you up to speed in one brief blog :) ....... if anyone is still following us!

So we left New Zealand after a whistle stop tour of the north island

We saw Napier - the town rebuilt in the Art Deco era after an earthquake

The Hukka Falls

Kerosene Creek, a natural hot water stream, just outside of Rotorua

Some geisers in a thermal village in Rotorua

Blue water lake - so clear and warm :)

Tauranga with Anna and Rob

A spot of boogie boarding ....

Then fun and games (literally) with Fifi and Mike in Hamilton

... yes that is a Hello Kitty apron but she only wears it around the house!

The beautiful Coromandel and hot water beach - where you dig a hole in  this part of the sand and you get a hot water bath!!

And Cathedral Grove - no close ups I'm afraid as we have to swim round and couldn't take the camera - google it its amazing.

Then off to Auckland to see Kate and James before the birth of Maddie - here we are making home made pasta, very domesticated!

Dave's cousins wedding - here are the family

The beautiful bride Kat and her now husband Matt

..check out the dress girls ...

oh and here's the other dress! And the lovely couple doing their impressive first dance

Then it was off to Melbourne for a quick visit - and to see the motley crew

And Dave and Sam's old friend Kamahl

Dave's birthday dinner in Fitzroy, Melbourne

And finally presenting our lovely host in Melbourne - Ben and his beloved - oh sorry Stephanie the other one - the cat :)

And our stop over in Kuala Lumpar would not be complete without yet more of Dave's friends - Jamie and his lovely partner and her friend.

Right I'll post this as you never know when you'll lose power or internet or both, next instalment soon
