Back from the last foreign work trip of the year (for me anyway) and now headlong into getting ready. Bought some new luggage in France. Dates sorted, and a Dumpstation Guide downloaded. Lists of DOC campsites for North and South Islands. All confirmation emails printed off and now hoping that our flight from Sydney to Auckland will be going ahead because of some ash cloud down that end of the world. At least if we are delayed, we’ll be in Dubai or Sydney!
