No, I don't know what the title of this post means either. All I do know is that New Zealand is full of birds, and full of things that there just are not words…

I did not grow up on a farm. Not even close. Though I do seem to recall a school day field trip or two to something approximate to the concept of a farm. But…

Though we're in Rotorua now, we're still going back over to Hamilton pretty often… so I guess it's the best of both worlds! Lots of new things to see and…

Turns out New Zealand has a few of the same animals that the rest of the world has. (Except for snakes. And squirrels. And real predators…) But it's always a…

We continued on our travels, heading to Lake Waikaremoana (from the Maori, translates to ‘sea of rippling waters’) situated in Te Urewera National Park, which…

Sometimes I just can't help but feel lucky - there are so many wonder-full things in New Zealand that just seem like they ought to have a price tag on them…

After spending some time at Waihau Bay (the setting of the New Zealand film “Boy” - btw) doing some fishing, and hoping for the rain to quit, we continued along…

Venturing forth into new (zea)lands! It's always comforting to travel along the coast, even if it's a bit different from Florida's gulf side. At least there's…

Quite a few firsts for me here: -First time ever seeing California Redwoods… (Silly me, going all the way to New Zealand to do so!) -First time finding a real…

Finally - we got to the Hamilton Zoo! And quite a treat: lovely shaded walkways everywhere, pretty nice enclosures, and most (but not all) of the zoo animals…

What happens when an amazing public gardens hosts two weeks of awesome arts, music, performance, and more? Well, whatever happens - call it the Hamilton Gardens…

We van-camped in the Karangahake Gorge area and drove in the morning to a nearby walk to a waterfall to have breakfast. I would be very happy & content to visit…

We decided to check out the Karangahake Gorge near the town of Paeroa, at the southern edge of the Coromandel mountain range. It was an old gold mining area,…

Nothing says “Happy Valentine's Day” quite like Maori song and dance! Steve and I had a fun day: we only caught the last three or four groups, but luckily they…

Mmm, summer fruits, veggies, and flowers. I spent a few months back in the U.S. for winter (though “winter” in Florida) and got back to New Zealand at the end…

Sarasota may have gorgeous white sand, but New Zealand beaches have style. You might not want to go tanning here (what with the hole in the ozone layer), or go…

We went to Maungatautari for a special conservation event with guided tours of the reserve. They've eliminated the pests in the small enclosures and are working…
