Well, I just returned from New Zealand after backpacking the best part of a fantastic four weeks there.

I have over 400 digital images to sort through and some video. These include a bungy DVD, skydive images, jet boat images and the Auckland sky tower jump images. :D

Highlights include the Singapore botanic gardens (which I saw on transit out there - 24hrs stop over) and the bungy/skydive.

Whilst in Singapore I had to try the Singapore Slinger (famous cocktail) and whilst in the courtyard at Raffles Hotel drinking it, Bill Clinton happened to pass through :O

The only shitty parts were the flights. Coming home was about 3hrs from Auckland to Sydney, 9hrs from Sydney to Bangkok and 12hrs from Bangkok to Heathrow - that much plane food can't be good for you :(

All in all it rocked and I definitely recommend New Zealand!
