Posted:Hey guys,
so finally my itchy feet are being relieved (YAY!) and I am heading out to New Zealand arriving on the 10th september, hoping to spend the first month in the north island before heading down to meet friends in the south for a while. Im planning to go to Thailand in April and sometime before then spend some time in Aus, possibly going to Woodford but still undecided on that front..
aaanyways, I would love to meet up with some of you fellow HoPpers, have a spin, have a drink, possibly beg a space on a couch/floor for a night, anyone up for it? Xx

Posted:chwhoop, let me know when you hit christchurch as there's a bunch of us at circus school who'll be more than happy to meet you and have a few drinks. There's also a kickass festival in dunedin (further south still) called circulation in november which is one of the better ones we have in NZ for circussy type stuffs.

Posted:yay!! Point Blank, awesome, I'm hoping to be in Dunedin around October November anyways, as thats where the majority of my friends are, also might be doing wee mini tour with a friends band perhaps singing a couple of songs in between sets for him, not sure yet though. Will keep this post updated anyway to let folk know when and where I am, definitely will be in Christchurch at some point!
How much are tickets to Circulation? Sounds good, I've also been recommended to go for Voyage festival..?

triptician, will definitely be in touch, I think I'll only be spending a month or so in Aus so might juts be a quick day or two in Townsville but would be loely to meet up smile

hope all you ChristChurchers are all ok, and things can start rebuilding to equilibrium again soon.. sending much love to you all and hope to meet you soon Xx

Posted:Yeehaa, bring on circulation!

Tickets are a wee bit pricey ($130) but totally worth it.

welcome to NZ, we hope you are enjoying your stay so far and haven't been assaulted by our rabid sheep population tongue2

Chch is ok for the most part now after the quakes, still getting hit with after shocks which are frequently above 4.0 on the scale.

Catch ya when you hit the South Island

Posted:yay! Although I'm not sure I can afford $130 without getting a job really soon...is there any way to get a free ticket? Stwearding or anything?
I'm in the South Island now, heading to Hanmer Springs in a couple of days so will see where my feet take me after that!

Posted:Sounds like you've found yourself a good spot then smile

The holidays finish at the end of this week but if yoou ever want to make a weekend trip down then we'll all be around.

Not sure if you can get volunteer tix for circulation anymore but if you have a job then I highly recommend going anyway, there isn't a circus fest in NZ that tops it that I've seen yet.

Have fun in Hamner

Posted:rubbish! Guys I cant get circulation weekend off as we're short staffed, really wanted to come and play and meet all you lovely folk! However, I will be roaming around ChristChurch sometime in the next few months, and will let you know when I do. Also, who has NZ plans for New Year? Where's the best spot to go? I'm thinking about going to Phat but also up for any other recommendations!
