Y'all Just Wait! (New Zealand)

In December I'm going to New Zealand for 6 weeks to visit with friends. When I get back, all you'll hear is NZ this, NZ that, and NZ this here It'll be my first vacation vacation ever. While in the Navy my "vacations" were always to visit family, and if you've ever lived away from your family, you'll understand it's no vacation to come back home for a while. You're more tired after it's over than you were when you got there

Billy, how wonderful! Amanda will just die to hear about you making the trip. What's your itinerary?

Gosh, if your trip coincides with Jen's, NZ will never be the same.
