i shall be headed down to this fine country hopefully early 2007 (early as in jan/feb).

having never been there before, does anyone have any suggestions as to places i should go etc? i will probably be over there for 6 months or so, maybe even longer if i like it eeeep!

im told the south island is really beautiful, so ill probably spend most of my time there.

im going all by my little self so it would be great to meet people over there.

any festivites or regular twirling meets anyone can fill me in on?

Hi there Jess
I shall also be in NZ in January. I'll be in the south island doing street shows. You should check out the World Buskers festival in Christchurch from 18th Jan (I think) - Check out wonderfull 3 woman Fire Troupe from Canada - Les Walkyries.
Hopefully SOLAR (my troupe) will be there next year.
PM with your own email if you wanna meet up.
Otherwise i'll be at Woodford doing my shows also
Have fun
Rob

In Wellington, there's the Fringe Festival running from February till March. And there's also the Cuba Street Carnival there on the 23th and 24th of February! An absolute must!

Ask a question and be a fool for a minute...don't ask and be a fool your whole life.

I don't know about any festivals or anything, but I can vouch for the beauty of the South island.

Queenstown is very nice (if a little touristy) and the mountains around are stunning!

My state of mind is not yours to define!

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

I guess I should reply since i live in NZ smile
I cant think of anything to suggest at the moment but i will put my thinking cap on. Im probably just easy to please, but i am constantly amazed at the scenery i come across while visiting different parts of the country, either in the north or south islands.
