It's summer somewhere...

Stuck way up here in the wintery Northern Hemisphere I sometimes forget that it's summer downunder, or New Zealand in this case. Everyone's off school for nearly two months for the summer holidays, and most of the country closes down from Christmas Day for a fortnight, to pack up all the whanau and head off to the bach and beach for a good ol' wind down.

The New Zealand Herald has been posting holiday photos from its readers (two lots now, here and here), which are more than enough to bring a sigh to an ex-pat's heart, and encourage those that haven't yet visited Godzone to think seriously about packing their togs and making their own voyage downunder.

Wonderful photo that of the child jumping. It really captures joy. Now, as to you being "way up here...". Why you've barely made it over the equator. Even I am only "up here" while Michael is truly "way up":)
