Today is a religous day, as I think I found a part of heaven!

Today I awoke to great news on CNN international—DUKE has made it to the sweet sixteen and I am not sure about any of the others teams, which is perfectly find for me.

For the first time I am seated on the correct and in fact the right side of the plane. For those on the left there is nothing but cloud cover but for us special righties, the view of Mt. Cook is right outside our window. Many people have asked if I am going there and others have insisted, that "I must"…but truth be known, this is as close as I am going to get to the mighty mountain. Probably a good thing as the mountain has not been kind to natives or tourist over the past few weeks. A famous New Zealand female climber and two of her climbing mates fell to their death several weeks ago. The weather had turned so bad, many thought the mountain wasn’t ready to release her body and as such kept the rescue turned recovery personnel at bay from accessing the mountain for days. I’ve heard or read of additional deaths since that one and just yesterday someone visiting from the UK literally became the accidental tourist as he tripped at the very end of his guided glacier walk and fell only a short distance but was killed by the ice on the way down. Not having a great track record with heights and falling—I am choosing to explore this part of NZ with my eyes and camera.


When you arrive in Queenstown the landing is much like an adventure ride. First the plane makes it over the mountain range and begins flying low through the gully with the mountains on both sides of the plane and through the double paned plasic window appears to be within arms reach. You circle lower and lower until you finally land. Queenstown is beautiful and just has to be a slice from heaven. The mountains are the southern part of the New Zealand Alps, the lakes and rivers are crystal clear blue and aqua, the town is more than you would expect plus a bag of chips. This town seems very wealthy and well versus on how to leverage its natural resources and amenities for the many visitors it welcomes to their paradise. Day one was pristine, picture perfect, blue skys, puffy white clouds, incredible majestic mountains and amazing waters. Have I mentioned the food, wine and coffees are all great here as well?! Please BOB G., I beg of you can’t we find a business here to buy, acquire, turn-around, re-invent…anything you suggest and I am happy to relocate for the good of our business growth and expansion.

More to come--my internet access time is up....cheers for now.
