Hello! I’m in Queenstown at the moment visiting a friend. Yesterday’s weather was pretty dire, so I spent some time digging up these old ski-field images – I want to BE that girl in the gingham shirt! But obviously it’s Spring right now, so rather than skiing I’ve been “tramping” about the hillsides, eating nice food at Vudu and trying (unsuccessfully) to identity various Lord of the Rings locations! Oh yeah, and I bungy-jumped off a bridge this morning! Initially I was all “adventure sports – NO WAY!” but somehow it happened and well, I’m still here.
