Made it! May 6, 2010 by Daisy Thomas (Surfer)

Heya, It seems like a long time ago now because so much has gone on but yes we made it safe and sound to London, managing to dodge the Volcanic Ash that shut down the whole of Europe!

3 surfboards, 2 boardbags, 5 bags, 4 people and a Ukulele..tight!

On arrival we were greeted by mum and dad who were over seeing my gramps whose 90th birthday was celebrated along with my twin cuzzies 21st and Uncles birthday all on the same day, epic.

Its amazing travelling as far as we do from NZ and getting to our destination to know somebody, anywho we set off to Wales ahh the homeland. My Father grew up in Wales hence the family history and strong connection to the place. Wales is a wonderful place with lush green acres and tiny little country roads which wind through the coastline into the counrty side. I saw alot of family history which was interesting.

Epic wee bar with live music, my cousins friend was singing this night (Jessica Cornish, you should check her out her voice is amazing) this is the bar that Dizzie Rascal was discovered. Radical

Over the summer I stayed with some wonderful people in Gisborne who really reminded me how important knowing your Whakapapa is, it was such perfect timing because I was to be setting off to the land where my fathers side of the family made their mark, it gave me extra amp to really find out from my grandfather what went on in those days and he gave some darn inspiring stories on people, war and family. The stuff I don’t think you really appreciate until you get a little older.

After a good week checking out the history in the welsh folk museum, catching up with friends and enjoying family time we set off to the big smoke, London.

Huge buildings dwarfed us at Canary Wharfe, where all the financial stockmarket stuff goes down

London was great fun, not having to be anywhere at a certain time, being able to purely walk and not fall into the rat race of the London streets was fantastic. Tom and I set off on a mission to find an art shop, which we did and along the way we saw buskers, ate blueberries by the punnet and ate pizza.
So much went on in the last few days if I write it all down you’ll fall asleep so how about I just leave you with these photos.

p.s we surfed a wonderful place called Llangennith in Wales but I got no pics because it was so foggy we couldn’t even see the waters edge!

:)

Ocean in Wales but blocked off by any type of swell

Flat ocean, this place does get waves though.

VIDEO from my trip to NZ April 25, 2010 by Angie Koops (Surfer)

Here’s some video footage of my time in NZ…

Volcanic Erruption! April 21, 2010 by Daisy Thomas (Surfer)

Spaceships campervan hire nz I headed back down south to prepare for the next big adventure.

Living out of a bag can have it’s moments and my thoughts go out to the people who are currently stuck in airports all over Europe and who cannot return home to loved ones etc.

We are scheduled to fly out tomorrow afternoon but by the looks of things it is not looking likely so we are going to have to do a complete reshuffle. From Dubai we may have to do an overland mission to London…so definitely preparing for that!

You will be seeing some fantastic images over the next few months so stay tuned!

Thank you again to all the supporters over the summer seasons and I hope you all have an awesome winter, wherever your missions take you!

Enjoy

Waterfall seal pups and sick surf April 20, 2010 by Angie Koops (Surfer)

Wow today I got to see the craziest thing ever, we walked up to this beautiful little waterfall and there were about 30 seal pups in the water hole playing around with sticks and leaves doing jumps having a ball! Crazy!!! they were so cute!!

The mother seals have been doing this for a few seasons now, but this is the first time I actually got to see it!! its a serious hike for the mothers as it’s easily about 50m up hill from the ocean to the waterfall, over big boulders until they reach this little waterful and have their babies there, its a much safer environment for them. Then when the pups get big enough they swim and slide their way down toward the ocean. Amazing how they found the spot in the first place.

I also have been getting some sick waves, theres been a nice solid south swell the whole time I have been home and have again got my wave quoter up! Kaiks has been rad. Off back to the gold coast tomorrow. Have had so much fun in Enzed once again!
