  1. Phil is excited about his starter wife, as am I! He was brought up on a farm, so cant believe you havent slept in a barn ( i havent either! – Kristy )
    I hope you love the dolphins in Kaikoura if you get there.
    Sorry we didnt say bye, we got pulled away.
    You, Jeff and Cooper have done some incredible things, we hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!
    Hope to hear from you soon,
    Phil & Kristy
