I got a cryptic e-mail today which appeared to be a scam until I double checked its veracity and found that it truly was from a third-party representing Marriott.com. I had entered long ago the Marriott international Facebook page contest for the NFL, the first prize was a round-trip ticket to the Super Bowl and seats for the game. I did not win that even though 12 others apparently did. Instead I won according to the e-mail and $46 credit and the NFL shop, which apparently can buy me one and a half OR one T-shirt. As my wife just said, better than nothing, and I guess she is right as always
I am having a great time in New Zealand...Already been to Auckland and Waiheke, Rotorua, Te Puia, Wellington, Blenheim, Marborough Sounds and Te Anau, Milford Sound and now in Queenstown (at the Crowne Plaza)...A fabulous trip...I will be providing more pictures as I get time but things have been very busy. I head back to Auckland in a few days and end my trip in Christchurch, New Zealand on 28 February 2012 before returning to Orlando on the same date. I would highly recommend trips to both Australia and New Zealand, incredible place to visit!!! Internet Service has been slower than I would like over here, the reason for my lack of postings!!!
