First of the firsts....

We're back in Calgary living off the generosity of our friends here. It's a little surreal being here for such a quick visit. We feel as though we're still just tourists!

While we were in New Zealand, Krysti and I were careful to note some of the "Firsts" of the trip. I thought I'd share a few of the more exciting ones.

First time across the equator:

First swim under a waterfall:

First Octopus:

This one counts for two...First sea cave AND first Penguin!

First 747 (I didn't get to go upstairs though), first time living Wednesday twice, first eel.... There are way more, I just don't want to bore you all! All in all, it was an absolutely fantastic trip.

Thank-you New Zealand!

Final NZ Days....

We've just returned from a few days of tramping on the Kepler Track. Man, the alpine huts here are deluxe! They even come with entertainment.... This is a Kea.
He is an alpine absolute clown. We saw him when tramping the Kepler Track. We went to a mountain. We also saw a funny sign.

Hope all is well! We'll see you soon.
