Headed for New Zealand soon!

I am headed for New Zealand on Monday. I will be in the center of the North Island, teaching at the Taupo Symposim. New Zealand will be the 20th country I’ve lived in or visited:

Andorra
Austria
Australia
Bermuda
Brazil
The Bahamas
Canada
France
United Kingdom
Italy
Liechtenstein
Luxembourg
Monaco
Mexico
New Zealand 
Netherlands
Senegal
South Africa
Switzerland
USA 

I still have a lot of places still to visit! If I can get to Asia and Antarctica, I will have been on all seven continents.

Right now, my biggest concern is whether everything will fit in my two suitcases: a large one that has to hold all my class supplies and clothing (and remember, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, so I have to pack some bulky stuff!), and a small carry-on that will hold my quilts (I’m only taking my small quilts, but I’m taking a good number of them).

I’ll try to blog from New Zealand and include information about the Symposium, and my adventures traveling for a few days afterward, so stay tuned!
