Auckland to London

Hello.... Ive been away from pbase for sometime. On a holiday from New Zealand to UK and Europe for 3 months.


After 25 hours from leaving home..finally London is in view.. what a feeling to finally arrive, I felt emotional..tears in my eyes, as I arrived in England, home of my ancestors. My grandfathers and grandmothers left these shores for a life in New Zealand at the beginning of the 20th century.. and here I am 2nd generation New Zealander, my first trip to explore their homeland.


Countries I visited: England, Scotland, Wales, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.


I will slowly upload my photos as I sort them. I decided to leave my SLR Canon 30D camera at home.. so all photos here snapped with my Canon S2 powershot, or my Panasonic TZ3.

Please enjoy my journey.
