Memories:

My first full test tour and loved it. A fantastic country, great scenery leaving me with some unforgettable memories

Thanks:

To all those who gave some great advice both before and during the tour

To all those who took the time to have a chat and pass on various tips

To all those who I met on tour having "spoken" to via this forum in the months preceeding the trip, especially Andy, Rob,Nick, Bob/Aaron, Swanny and Lanesra ( and Mrs Lanesra )

Apologies to those not I met who I have not mentioned, too many to remember

Thanks to Gilo and those many BA regulars I met for the first time at the Beige v BA game in Dunedin, and continued to chat to throughout the tour. Once again too many to mention in person, but you know who you are ! ( apologies )

Not sure when I will get to travel again but for those visiting London or indeed Trent Bridge for the Ashes this year, let me know I am I will endeavour to meet up for a pint :D

Take care all .................... Peter

Thanks Peter and ditto.

Always good to see old friends and particularly this time in such wonderful surroundings. Easy to appreciate now why others felt this was the ultimate tour, have to agree.
Would have been fantastic anyway, but the people absolutely made it, great great hosts.

Thanks to everyone I spoke to for making this my most memorable and enjoyable tour.

Great tour

I only did Wellington and Auckland, but had a fantastic time. This was our 5th cricket trip, but we met a lot of great people this time around

Gutted that we wont be able to go to Oz, but that could change if we chop it off on the lottery :lol:
