    Master Frodo has arrived safe and sound in the land of Hobbits, Orcs and nasty gollum-type thingies. (In other words Kai has arrived Down Under and is currently navigating rains, maps, and driving on the LEFT side of the road) LOL

    Oh good! And you shall relay all of Master Frodo's lovely adventures to us.

    (I just saw The Prestige and saw Andy Serkis in it and went "it's Gollum!!")

    Hey... Tim Tams belong to us Aussies.

    And it's the northern hemisphere that's upside down [face_shame_on_you]. Spotted Dick is some English food that even us Aussies shudder at. This driving on the wrong side of the road you do...creepy!


    Erm, I'll be hiding back in the Yoda thread. [face_blush] Although Master Kenobi, you make it Queensland way, lets us QldFF know. [face_peace]

    You can get all that stuff in Burbank -- there's a store that's an offshoot from a pub here. And Ty-Phoo we can actually get at our supermarket...and PG Tips is better anyway, if you're talking about retail British tea. But we never bother anymore, when there's a Teavana store nearby. Now THAT is the place for teas! Can be expensive (up to $25/ounce!!! for silverleaf Sumatran that is apparently one of the rarest teas you can buy, allegedly picked by trained monkeys...I swear I'm not making this up) but everything they have is great.

    . . .

    :eek:

    Just as soon as I get okay with "off like a warm fish milkshake", now I gotta look something else up.

    I swear, your Aussies just have a different word for EVERYTHING.**

    Hello, all!!! Well, this is my last full day on the South Island. Tomorrow evening I take the ferry across to Wellington to spend 4 days or so, then I toodle around North Island for a while and come home! So far, I have survived driving on the left and so has everyone around me, so that's good! I miss my OL buddies, though. :) I am attempting to upload some pictures now, but no editing software on the computer at the B&B so it's taking for-freaking-ever, as the files are big and the connection...er...isn't.

    I will try to remember to pick up some treats for dissemination when I get back. I had no idea they'd be in such demand!

    Update: Upload failed. *sigh* If I manage to get some piccies uploaded, I'll post a link or get it to Master K to post. Sorry. :(

    Hope all is well for my SCFF peeps. :)

    We envy you tremendously, adventure in far flung places, amazing sights and sounds, tastes and smells.

    Yes, take all the pictures you can, and write down your experiences so you can relive those special moments again and again.

    Be well and safe travels
