Skydiving Madness!

We arrived in Taupo for one thing and one thing only, “sky-diving”. This is one of the most famous (and cheapest) places in New Zealand to do this and if I didn’t do it now, I knew that I never would. We drove out to the airport and found ourselves sitting in a tiny room […]

New Zealand

I have arrived to New Zealand and it is the complete opposite from India! Fresh air, open roads, peace and quiet, no pollution, toilette paper and soap in public bathrooms, wildlife as far as the eye can see, mountains that frame oceans, tons of sheep (in fact there are 14 sheep to every one person […]
