New Zealand Diary

Lake Matheson, New Zealand (June 1, 2008)

In 2008 Mayli had her bi-annual neutrino conference in Christchurch, New Zealand. It was too much of an opportunity to pass, so we put together as many as free miles as we could, and I joined her for the trip. After the conference ended, we rented a car and traveled for over 2,000 miles up and down the coast and valleys of the beautiful South Island. We saw amazing scenery and wildlife.

Once we were back, I published a photographic diary of the trip on the first incarnation of my photoblog. It became a popular internet destination as the tourism was soaring in the country following the Lord of the Rings cinematographic fever. Now that my old blog has fallen in the graveyard of the collapsed hard drives, my New Zealand travel diary has been consigned to the forgotten corners of the internet. But nothing is really lost in the age of infinite digital copies and storage in the clouds, and my New Zealand photos keep cropping up from the virtual shoebox where my digital pixels are stored. So here it is; for the next few weeks I will repost the memories of our 2008 trip to the kiwi land. An occasion to remember the time I forgave one bostonian summer for the antipodal winter, and test new processes on the old digital files taken from the other side of the world. Buckle up, and I hope you will enjoy the trip!
