No wonder you Aussies drink so much beer :lol:
Yes, parts of New Zealand are like the Austrian Alps, but I,m no snow bunny - I live by the sea - waiting for the next Tsunami :lol:
It started at 0 degrees C and rose to 4 degrees, then the sun went down just after 5pm and it's f****in' cold outside mate. Can't wait til Summer comes :roll:

I did already...in june 1996 in Las Vegas - a funny story:

I was there visiting a bowling trade show. So I said that I want to visit also the bowling halls there. I take a bus and went to the Santa Fe Station somewhere in the north to vist their 60 lanes. As I arrived, there was a real nice panorama with all this red stones and they were building a bridge over a highway. So I walked there to take better photos of the panorama. As I arrived I had learned to understand what is "thirst" as shown in the wildwest-films - only 300m walk maybe. The last meters I wanted to turn around. But I climbed up the small hill they had made for the bridge and shot the photos. Then I went back to the Santa Fe Station.

As I arrived there, the first thing I did was to drink a big coke at once and to order a second one. When I had drunk the half of the second coke, I saw for a short time a girl walking with an anorak - at 42 degrees C in the shadow :shock: :?: . I thought, "hey, maybe you are crazy now and you have already seen a fata-morgana..." :roll: but then I drank the rest of my coke and moved in the direction where the girl has moved. And you won´t believe it, they don´t have there at Santa Fe Station not only a bowling hall, they also have an "ice-arena".... in the middle of the desert... at 42 degrees C outside in the shadow.

I really enjoyed John Butler Trio playing Funky Tonight. Freakin' cool lead playing on a 12 string acoustic. To view the video, you will be forced to watch a 30 sec advert. I have never heard anything like this guy before. His other songs are pretty cool too.
