an adventure in new zealand
Anyway, we had an event to do there (we being the colleagues in an event company that I worked in) and as I was on the pre event team I was allowed to go there to help out. I dont like doing events, strange but true and I am still in event management but just not doing the events ..... thank god for that! Events are stressful, thankless and tiring, but as it was Queenstown, I jumped at the chance to go. Even if it meant long hours and sharing a room with the girl that snored. This was also the event that we got Dame Kiri Te Kanawa to sing during the Gala dinner, in a quaint winery. It was magical! After the event we had a day to close accounts and do a bit of sightseeing. Then I had a week off and headed to Auckland to stay with my uncle and his family. Funny thing about family, you dont see them for years, but when you do, it feels like you are home. My Uncle and Aunt drove me around and down to Rotorua (where they now run a motel) and let me play tourist. I will go back to New Zealand if I ever get the chance, it is one of those magical places (Peter Jackson was a smart man to film there!) where the landscape, the people, the air, everything is just one beautiful place.
