Default The Pumpkins have landed.............

YAY!!! We have arrived in New Zealand!!!!!!!!!!! :)

We got to ChCh this morning- Frenchy Surprised us at the airport which was soooo lovely!!!!!!

Staying at a motel for a few nights, then making our way up to Welly via Blenheim.

Singapore airlines were great to fly with and nothing was too much trouble. Changi airport was huge, spacious, and I could have spent a few days just in there!! great shops. Recomend the transit hotel just to refresh and rest.


So, first impressions great, as the weather is lovely and everyone we have encountered has been friendly and helpful. Going to try some NZ tv now, as I have heard so much about it!!!

Can't believe we are here woohooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lou, Paul, Eve and Grace xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

So glad all went well Lou ,wish I had been at the airport when you and Frenchy saw each other. Were there many tears? That was so nice of her to meet you but then you would have done the same I'm sure. Enjoy settling in and please keep us updated even if it is only to make us realise what we are missing for now All the best to you and the other Pumpkins ( and of course Frenchy and hers)

Phyllis and family x
