You are going to LOVE New Zealand and Sydney. Even if you can't do more than sightsee, relax and enjoy, you're going to be astonished at its beauty and captivated by the people, the climate changes and just the experience of being "Down Under." I don't envy you the long plane flight, however; be sure to take anything that might make you more comfortable during the flight, like an extra pillow to help your back, for instance. I seem to remember that a friend made it possible for you to fly business class, which does make all the difference. Can't wait to hear more of your plans! And I'm so impressed with all you're doing these days. Thanks so much for writing.
