Well, I’m off to Taupo with Stewart (my flatmate) and Kim (a visitor to the lab) this weekend. Should be good. It’s Stewart’s birthday on Sunday, and he’s going to bungy-jump and then get very drunk. My Dad suggested that this was the wrong way around.
And, I’ve just booked a flight to Christchurch and back, for a week of adventures on the south island. I’ll fly out on the 16th and return on the 26th, and see as much as humanly possible in the meantime. Planning a HeliHike on a glacier - weather permitting of course.
After that, I’ll have to sort out the return to the UK. Blimey.
