New Zealand!

Sorry for the delay in posting. The weather has been a wash, literally… torrential down poor for the last week and the forecast doesn’t have a bright future either. We had planned on doing a 2 day hike through Mt. Tongariro National Park, AKA Mt. Doom. Unfortunately, due to the rain we wouldn’t have seen much so we have forgone mostly all of our plans for the north island and decided to head south where the sun might shine. We did however stay a few nights with an awesome couple we met from Austin Texas (of all places) so we have caught up on sleep, laundry, and good company. Couch surfing rocks! Here are a few pics I took in the 5 minutes it was not raining with 60 mile per hour coastal winds. (They actually have wind warnings and we were up on a hill and the wind blew my foot a bit farther then I anticipated and yes I ate it, but the camera survived)

I'm glad you're getting some good couchsurfing adventures! But, shoot, your profile is going to be cooler than mine soon : (
