I'm going on an adventure

I know I've mentioned this on Twitter and in the comments sections on a few posts, and probably in passing a couple of times, but I realised today that I've never actually properly told you guys something pretty big. And that something is this:

Yes, my friends. At stupid o'clock on Saturday morning, I will be heading to the airport to board a plane to the land of the long white cloud. (The stupid o'clock part is not an exaggeration - my plane is at 8.10am, so I have to be at the airport by like 6am. URGH)

I'm flying into Auckland, where Ness and I will be staying with our BFF Kat for a few days. Then we're hitting the road. We'll head down to Matamata to go here:

Hobbiton, more precisely. BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY. Then it's on to Rotorua, which apparently smells a lot like fart, but which is full of awesome geysers and hot springs as well as places to see kiwis and keas, and learn about Maori culture.

From there, we hit the road again and head south for Tongariro National Park, home to a ton of waterfalls and rainforests and three volcanoes. One of which you may know better as Mount Doom! We plan on doing a couple of bushwalks (known in New Zealand as "tramps". LOLOLOLOLOL). Plus, we're staying in a schmantzy hotel that looks a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit like the hotel in The Shining... O.o

A couple of days later, it's back on the road time, and we're heading across to Waitomo to check out the glow worm caves of awesomeness:

Aaaaaaand then it's back to Auckland and the airport. Ness is heading Christchurch, and I'm heading To Wellington. Why? TO SEE KIM, OF COURSE. We have been all caps emailing about it for months. There will be museum-ing and Marvel-ing and generally having All The Fun, and it will be MAGICAL.

So there you have it. If I'm not around much over the next couple of weeks? That's why.

Wish me good weather?
