Snow way

There's one thing I emphatically do not miss about Chicago: Snow. At the moment, Chicago is getting a lot of it, with near blizzard conditions expected. Even at its worst, winter in Auckland is nothing like that—it’s more like a cool autumn day by comparison.

The photo below is from Road Trip, my post of October 22, 2006. That little patch of white to the left of the roadway is snow—the only snow I’ve been close to in New Zealand. Mt Ruapehu is in the background.

Amazing photo I want to go to New Zealand so badly - hopefully my partner and I will get to go soon!

Just be sure to have plenty of time--there's a lot to see!
