So It's Been a Minute...

Sorry for the occasional sideways photo...I fail.

I'm not sure what these plants are exactly but they smell like perfume.

Beautiful hikes, beaches, and sunny days.

Randomly, there was a speaker than washed up on shore.

My exclusive travel schedule.

Kiwi redbox, "flixbox"

I went to an American Thanksgiving Pot-luck.  My contribution.

Even New Zealand agrees, probably the best beer in the world.

New Zealand music awards.  Awesome.

Wine tasting in the grocery store.

The neighbor lighting off fireworks for Guy Fox Day.

Different fireworks.

Cute little Coke marketing campaign.

Olive trees in my back yard.

Rosemary shrubs all over town.

An old church.

My housemate's dog, Thor.

This is about a block away from house house..that's ocean down the street.

Grapefruit season.

The neighbors made juice.

It's that time.

The same old church building from before.

There are randomly all of these beautiful parks tucked away in different parts of the city.

I got to talk to Robby, Diana's dog on skype.

He seemed well.

I can't really say that I've been up to much.  The weather is finally starting to turn, so that's nice.  I guess I've just been trying to take advantage of the nice weather and see what I can see.

Kia Ora

"How are you" in Maori

Here are some stolen pictures from a friend....hopefully he doesn't mind.  These are from two small volcanoes that I went tramping around during my first few days here.

In other news, I got a job today (so I guess I'm sticking around for a while)!!!  I will be working for an Australian company here in Auckland as a fundraiser, fundraising for different international and domestic charity organizations.  I find out on Wednesday which specific companies I will be fundraising for and I start training on Monday.  What a load off!!  Now all i need is a little sunshine...sunshine in its liquid form (rain) will have to do for now.
