Holiday in New Zealand

Hello everybody. It has been a long time since my last blog post.
These last few months have been busy and my husband and I have had a holiday to New Zealand where we spent Christmas 2011 and New Year 2012.
My friends who are settled in Auckland since 2002  had been inviting us to visit New Zealand since a long time and last year we decided to visit them. We have known each other for over 25 years and were colleagues at Bombay Hospital.
We have had many holidays abroad to Disney World  Florida in U.S.A., Penang, Mellaca, and Kuala lumpur in Malaysia and Bangkok in Thailand.
Ezy & Me.
At all these place we booked into resorts and really enjoyed ourselves. We spent a minimum of 2 weeks at each resort and all the holidays were lovely. All these holidays were as a family. Magali always accompanied us. But this time she did not want to come along because she said we were going to live in someones house and that she did not like that. 
We left India on 21st December and were received at the Auckland Airport on 22nd December by my friends.
We were our mad selves all the while and the men were wondering whether we were drunk (not possible since we hardly drink) or taking drugs (also not possible since none of us does drugs).We laughed and laughed remembering our old jokes and cracking some new ones and Ezy added to the fun by telling some funny happenings on board the ship.
Almost all of us.
Ezy is normally very quiet but there in Auckland he was quite talkative and my friends were quite surprised.
We visited all the places in Auckland and went for overnight stays to Coromandel and Rotorua.
My friends have a good social group and there were lot of invitations to parties and the days just flew by.
I missed Magali a lot and was sad because this was a first holiday abroad that she had not acoompanied us but she enjoyed herself too with her parents out of her hair.
We spoke regularly over the phone, on skype and also exchanged messages on twitter. So it did not feel like she was so far away.
On 20th January 2012 Ezy and I celebrated our 22nd Wedding anniversary and it was Ezy's birthday also.
So the three of us had lunch at a  mall food court followed by a lot of shopping.
Life could not be any better. I am loving it.
Love to all  of you,
Sheila

  2. Oh, what wonderful fun for you, visiting with your friends like that.
    Congratulations on your anniversary and Ezy's birthday, too.My youngest brother was born on my parents' 22nd anniversary, so it was a very exciting day for everyone. I hope yours wasn't quite that exciting!
