Welcome to ScenicViews

I've just started this blog for my forthcoming trip to New Zealand.
I'll be in New Zealand during January and February 2006 and also spending a week in Sydney, visiting my Uncle Tom (last seen when I was two years old) and Michael, a friend I met on Iceland last summer. I'm also spending a week on the Cook Islands on the way there and a week on Fiji on the way back.

While I'm in New Zealand, I'll be meeting up with Carline to walk the Routeburn Track - and also walking the Milford Track a few days afterwards. I'm also looking forward to some more kayaking in Abel Tasman and the Bay of Islands - and some cycling on the Coromandel Peninsula.

I'm hoping to meet up with Tina in Auckland just before I fly to Sydney, near the end of February.

My main website is at
