(Right, catching up continues.)

Wellingtons:  [livejournal.com profile] craigoxbrow is in town next week. He arrives Tuesday afternoon, leaves the following Tuesday afternoon.

(Who is [livejournal.com profile] craigoxbrow? He is a friend from Edinburgh. He saw Joss Whedon speak in Sydney. He ran long-running Buffy game The Watch House, written up and followed by a crowd on RPG.net. He makes custom action figures with some prowess and has dipped his feet into the wild world of 48-hour filmmaking. He is a good chap.)

So, if you're in NZ a week, starting and finishing in Wgtn, what do you go see? I've already suggested a trip up to Rotorua and Taupo, which are tourist destinations for very good reason. Hmm, LotR sites too? Paths of the Dead?

And - if you're in Wgtn with a spare room? Craig will be perfectly happy to hang in a backpackers but if anyone can offer more hospitality, then great. <lj user=wyldcard> has kindly offered space for a few nights, but he's out of town for some of the time...

And we'll definitely sort out a get-together in a pub or something. All will be welcome!

Waitomo for the caving and bunny shaving. Just down the road from Rotarua too. I can send on my article on it, if you like.

Here's the rough piece I did on it for the web - http://www.simonseeks.com/travel-guides/sail-cave-or-bunny-shave-hop-around-auckland__118178
There's a tidier and more grown-up version in Velocity magazine, but this has all the details I think he'll need.

Seconding Rotorua as very cool. Think he mentioned wanting to do LotR stuff, too.

Yeah, worked fine, Jon Ball offered his spare room and was super-host.

Sweet as!
