The Twelfth Thing - Where Your Family Is From

On my Mother's side:
England, Scotland, Guernsey, Germany, and in New Zealand: Wellington & Christchurch.

On my Father's side:
Ireland, England, and in New Zealand: Mt Somers, Geraldine & Mesopotamia.

I grew up on my father's farm called "The Tui" Station, near the head of the Rangitata River in New Zealand.  I lived there from age zero until I left school and joined the Royal New Zealand Air Force in 2001.  The station was sold about the middle of 2009.  Check out the sales pitch and amazing Youtube video here.

I still watch it when I'm lonely for home.

Yeh, that is not the most gorgeous place in the world or anything. GAH!

:-) I like to think so.
I've been fortunate enough to see a small bit of Canada, but unfortunate in that it was a very small part. It was beautiful though.
