    Would now be a good time to seek out a willing member of Customs to arrange a suitable "welcome" for our fellow geek?

    Jealousy is such a poor word to describe my thoughts right now

    I love gloom. I find that it's best to think that way when I live where I do. Nothing beats gloom, wind, and drizzle.

    I bet you're all jealous now!

    Re: Greetings from GOA

    Time to start a competition then. Three classes to this comp:

    1) He/she who posts to edugeek from the futherest away from UK.

    2) He/she who posts from the most exotic location.

    3) He/she who posts from most remote location.

    Only thing left is to decide who is the umpire for this. I nominate Dos Box...!

    Was IN NZ about this time last year for a family reunion etc. It was bloody cold, in Auckland while I was there it -1c one night! And to me it was Australia 20 years ago. Australia is the US 10 years ago! You get the drift!

    That said both are are worth going that distance to see and the sights, sounds, wildlife & people etc that are the equal of anywhere. Me, well I have family in both Oz & NZ so go out on a fairly frequent basis, on average that is about every 18 months to 3 years or so. Luckily my family is able to help out with the airfares, and I don't have to pay acommodation while I'm there, so It's actually a cheap trip for me!

    Airfares if you choose wisely and travel in the sholder periods it's about £850 return to Oz and usually slightly cheaper to NZ.

    Re: Greetings from GOA

    That's one of the things I like about NZ - roughly similar climate to the UK in most places. I don't like it too hot or too cold (shush in the back there!)

    Good to hear you manage to get there regularly and with free acommodation though, can't be bad

    Give me Reno, Nevada any day. Never been, but it's where my girlfriend lives so I'm bound to like it. Failing that, North Norfolk's quite nice.
