Just got back from a few days driving around the south Island.
Did many tourist things.. Milford Sound, Invercargill, Dunedin and went to a whole bunch of towns that are too small and too hard to pronounce but it was such a good time.
Milford was not so good, we had terrible weather and it was just a bunch of waterfalls and cliffs, I was more interested in the reason the Sound is there than the sound itself which isnt that interesting unless you have been there but i did get to sit in the Captains Chair on the boat so that was fun.
The following day we made it to Invercargill, which is a city at the very end of NZ, We got amazing weather and i had such a lovely day with my parents, going to places i have never been before all along the coast, it was beautiful.
On Wednesday we traveled to Dunedin to see my Uncle and his new (very young but very nice) wife, i was a bit weary going into dinner as my uncle is 58 and she has just turned 30- 2 years younger than his daughter BUT Kerry is lovely and they seem very happy so that is all I could want for them.
Then i returned late yesterday to realize that i have a few days left before the next part of my trip begins and I have a feeling that Monday is not going to be much fun, not only do i fly to Christchurch from Wanaka, Christchurch to Auckland to Santiago to Rio ALL in one day but i have to say goodbye to Mum and Dad and all the emotions i should have felt in Aus will be coming out then i imagine.
It is going to be really good for me but I may be a bit scared, which is normal but doesn't help me much.
I think i will do what i do best and not think about it.
Yes, that is what i will do

A cave at the very end of Milford, just before the sea.
The Chasm- hard to picture but a river that flows under this rock thing and makes a waterfall into this huge pit.. can't really describe it.
