Hi everyone,

I'm new to the site and thought I'd create a new thread to introduce myself. I hope that's ok - I'm not up with all this netiquette business as yet. I've been checking out the site on and off for a while now, and only just got up the nerve to post. Everyone seems so nice and friendly.

Ok, so here's a little bit about me. My name is Theresa (Tess for short) and I'm a 32-year-old teacher from Wellington, New Zealand. My hobbies include reading, astrology and cookery.

I fell in love with Michael Palin as a teenager whilst watching re-runs of Flying Circus. I was thrilled when he moved into travelogues as I love to hear about distant lands. (And let's face it, most lands are distant from NZ!)

Well, it's past my bedtime, so I must go. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Kind regards,

Hey Tess, welcome to the site. It's nice to have someoneelse from my end of the planet (I'm in Melbourne Australia.)

Cooking eh? Great stuff, there are a few amateur chefs around here!

Hope you enjoy the site!

I'm from a "distant land"....the United Kingdom,although these days,with regionalisation,we're getting somewhat less united.Would you like to know something about it? And...what are you reading at the moment,and what subjects do you teach? bIG. Regards.

Welcome to the site Tess!

My sister lives in Wanganui, NZ and my 2 nephews and their wives, and my 3 Great-nephews and 2 Great-nieces live in Taupo, NZ.

Haven't visited them yet though!!

Enjoy the site.

Welcome, Tess!
I was just talking with my friend how wonderful it would be to travel to New Zealand. I gather from all the pictures and all the programs on TV that it's a beautiful country.

Hello Tess. It's great having another person representing NZ. Come back soon and often!

Have you done any traveling outside your homeland?

Maryland, USA (Waaaaaay far away.) lol!

Welcome, Tess! I once knew someone from 'windy Wellington' and you certainly are a friendly outgoing lot there.

Hope you enjoy the site -
