Yep, my mother is a pure bred Lisbonian. I can even speak a little too: 'Nao falo Portugues' is my most regularly used phrase.

It's a beautiful place alright. I wish I could go back sometime soon...especially the 14th August .

I feel a bit silly pointing this out... but the 4th pic in my gallery is Auckland. That was one of the prettiest pics I found, so I put it in early. Your pic is lovely though.

I'll add the rest as soon as I can, so please feel free to suggest further images.

I was planning to but was sooo tired I gave up! I will add titles soon.

Thanks all for your kind comments.

Why have Auckland when you could have the far superior Wellington?

Auckland

Wellington

I'm a Wellingtonian, I'm meant to hate Auckland. (Nah, besides mock rivalry, I don't have much against Auckland. I know I liked it when I visited it at the age of six! And come on, One Tree Hill!)

Nice to see the New Zealand love! I miss the country a lot - Australia just can't compare. Here's hoping the All Blacks flog Australia! But I must say go the Wellington Hurricanes over the Crusaders!

LOVE the picture of Wellington!

And Christchurch! It truly is a wonderful city! Dunedin's fantastic too!

SORRY DALLAS IS NOT BEAUTIFUL. Just ask anyone. Texas has the dubious honor for being home to the three most ugly cities in America: Dallas, Houston, and El Paso.

Texas has an even more dubious (or, in this case, dubya-ous) honour... but that's another thread.

Yeah, I feel your pain. I don't believe they've been in New Mexico since the Joshua Tree tour.
