Kiwi's

I picked up The Bone People, by Keri Hulme when I was at the library. It’s good reading; she definitely has a gift for the use of ‘words’… some made up. But great words none the less. See her blog.

She writes of the South Island, a place I’ve never been but would love to visit. If only it wasn’t so darn far away! I can’t even imagine sitting in an airplane for over 8 hours… and to get to the South Island would require at least 16 miserable hours. Perhaps a cruise ship? Okay, Holland America cruise lines can get us to Auckland for about $8,000. That's a cabin with a terrace...

I am ready to go to NZ any time! My dream is to go back and stay for about 1 month and see everything I can. I would like to do a home swap so I could stay free and then I could afford the airfare. Unless, of course, I win the lottery and I can book a cabin with a terrace.......
