I have just got back last weekend from a fabulous 3 week family holiday in New Zealand. For me just being in ‘God’s Own’ Aotearoa the Land of the Long White Cloud (the Maori name of New Zealand) is holiday enough for me, but we also did some fun things while we were there. It’s pretty hard not to have fun when you spend time in Queenstown – often referred to as the extreme sport and adventure capital of NZ (the birth place of the famous Bungy). So my holiday consisted of 2 weeks in the South Island of NZ and one week in the North Island. I had a fab time on both islands.
Here’s a link to this cool new water sport – flyboarding

Back to Queenstown
We brought my dearest Nana back with us for a South Island adventure. We loved having you Nana! No she did not do a bungy, but we had fun watching quite a few.
Isn’t my Nana the cutest!!
bungy bathroom – what a hoot
Farewell. Can’t wait to see you again!
Southern Tip (no not a typo)
We took a road trip to Invercargill and Bluff, Bluff being the most southern point of the South Island (or the mainland as the locals call it).
Can’t beat the birdsong of our native Tui

Back to Work
So how was my first week back after such a long break? All good things must come to an end. It was tough as expected to get back into the groove, but at the same time really good to see everyone again. I love my team, a special bunch of people I get to work with who crack me up on a daily basis. I think I crack them up too – we have a good laugh most days.
My fellow interns and I are on our final weeks at WCB, with Izaac leaving first on Feb 1, Yui on Feb 3 and me on Feb 12th. I hope we get some new interns soon so we can help them assimilate into WCB life and give them a bit of training before we leave. So if you are interested in doing an internship at WCB please take a good look at our website especially the interns page where you will find testimonials including a few video testimonials.
That’s all folks.
One Last Image for Fun!
This is from my fruit bowl. Ok so this is a New Zealand peach, before you ask, no they are not all like this. Caption ideas? I was thinking ‘in honour of BB-8’.
