I'm frantically trying to type this in an airport like 20 minutes before I'm supposed to be hopping on a plane, so do forgive me if I sound rather frantic, but oh my goodness, I AM GOING TO NEW ZEALAND!!
My family hardly ever travels together - mostly because my parents travel all the time for work and I go a lot of places for school/contests/awards/etc. - but on the rare occasion that we do, it's pretty amazing, and this is no exception. :D I've never been to New Zealand before, but my parents say it's ridiculously gorgeous. Lots of lovely mountains and glaciers and wide open spaces (which, ahem, translates to close to zero triggers for panic attacks. Have I mentioned how much I love my family?).
Also: WE ARE SEEING HOBBITON. I REPEAT, WE ARE SEEING HOBBITON.
Can you hear my little fangirl heart palpitations? ;)
I need to wrap this up, because we need to get on the plane like right now, but I have my Hobbit book and I am so ready for this. :D Not quite sure whether we'll have internet access there, so I'm signing off the blog for 10-ish days (I still have my computer for FH work, but that's about it!).
Hopefully I'll be back with lots of fun stories - I'll see you guys soon!
