Christchurch, New Zealand – December 2000
Hi fellow travellers! It’s been awhile since I’ve last written. I would have done last month if my husband and I had not been moving house. Don’t you just hate packing everything up and then unpacking everything once you’ve settled in?
Anyway summer’s here and Christmas is getting close. We have exactly three weeks till Santa arrives in town to deliver all those gifts to every little boy and girl!
Here’s a great summer thing for you to do….
