Bob McCoy: I am signed up for the program 20621 for Mar 17, 2014. I'd like to be able to contact my room-mate.

Hi Edda...are you from VA originally? I grew up in No. VA just outside DC (Springfield then Woodbridge). I go to VA yearly to visit family/friends. We transferred to AL over 40 years ago...husband was with United Airlines. He passed in 2001 just two years after we retired. My kids were grown, so I started traveling..and love it. It's nice some of you have extra time before/after our long flight over. Can't wait to see NZ...heard so much about it's beautiful scenery. And Frances, I know what you mean about those weather extremes...we're having single digit temps the next 3 days here in AL...colder than AK this week! Even our Gulf coastline is bracing for winter storm this week...burrrrr. Love your HI Toni...got to visit 5 times...we had an airline friend who lived on Maui, also got to the Big Island & Oahu. See you all soon!...Diane McFarland
Edda Duff Jan 29, 2014 at 10:59 PM

Hello Diane, I was born and raised in Germany and moved to Va 12 years ago from Corpus Christi, Texas.


Frances Malley Jan 11, 2014 at 08:48 PM

Can't wait to get out of PA and the crazy extreme weather - freezing, then 60 degrees then snow then ice then rain......Help!!! New Zealand has got to be better.....
Frances Malley Jan 11, 2014 at 08:50 PM

Never been there myself but have friends that have. They loved it.


Dave and Nancy Roylance Jan 11, 2014 at 08:11 PM

We are just now prepping for the March 3 program and read about this social network. Has anyone been to NZ before?


Diane McFarland Dec 31, 2013 at 09:12 AM

P.S. Happy New Year!!!


Diane McFarland Dec 31, 2013 at 09:11 AM

Joe & I (Diane)are enrolled in the March 3-16 New Zealand adventure. Also coming from Alabama is friend Suzanne. Looking forward to meeting everyone, & seeing some beautiful scenery.


Edda Duff Dec 10, 2013 at 09:30 PM

I have enrolled in the Feb.17th trip.
I am traveling solo. Anybody else going alone on this adventure?
Toni Hinds Dec 19, 2013 at 06:41 PM

Aloha, I too am traveling solo. I'm on the same trip and looking forward to the big adventure.
Edda Duff Dec 30, 2013 at 10:33 PM

Hello, my name is Edda Duff. I did something wrong because my name did not appear on my last post. From your greeting, I assume you are from Hawaii?
Toni Hinds Jan 02, 2014 at 11:29 AM

Hi Edda, Yes, I live on Oahu. This is my first international trip solo. Where are you coming from? I am spending a couple extra days on north isle. before & after trip.
Edda Duff Jan 03, 2014 at 09:19 AM

Hello Toni, I live in Massanutten, Va. (Shenandoah Valley) It sounds great that you are taking additional time to see more of NewZealand. I will spend 9 days in Australia with my sister (Brisbane area) before our NZ adventure. Isend you a "Friend" message on FB. I am not very active on FB, but it is one more way to communicate. I do not know how you feel about FB
Toni Hinds Jan 03, 2014 at 09:43 PM

Hi Edda, Wow, 9 days in Australia that will be nice too. Sorry, I have FB account but rarely use it.
Toni Hinds Jan 03, 2014 at 09:45 PM

I can be reached at islandtennisgal.com
Edda Duff Jan 11, 2014 at 09:49 PM

Toni, is "islandtennisgal.com" your e-mail? I got an "error" message
Toni Hinds Jan 16, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Hi Edda, Sorry, for my error. Islandtennisgal@gmail.com


Frances Malley Sep 15, 2013 at 09:00 PM

Myself, my friends Suzanne Churgai and Reitha are enrolled for the March 3rd trip. We then plan to spend two weeks exploring the North Island of NZ on our own. Working out the plans now. Would appreciate any feedback from folks who who have done North Island.
