Southbound, Auckland to Taupo. T minus 3.5 hours.  Loads of time.  The beautiful New Zealand forests and sheep pastures put on a leisure show for us.  The Kiwi peeps are major friendly, but their cars are sydlecix.  The white fluffs of wool are floating by my passenger window on the left side.  Ya, those sheep […]
