Hello Uni and her Ukelele Lovers!
I’ve been enjoying my 5th visit to New Zealand! Staying busy and keeping out of trouble! If I am not posting enough about my adventures on my blog, U can add me on Facebook or Twitter and get more deets on my what what!
Last month I went on a week tour of the South Island with band “Johanna and The Mystery”. Fun Facts! No harm came to me as I laid on a foamy in the backseat of the van not wearing a seat-belt. Danced with Polish Sailors in Port Chalmers at Chicks Hotel while Filipino Sailors threw money at me (5 bucks to be exact) in hopes I would sing The Lion King’s “Can U Feel The Love Tonight”. Why infact (scratch scratch) I Did!
We ate alot of fish burgers and meat pies and the rumors are true…I slept in a tent!
When I arrived in Nelson, I was greeted with loving open arms!(and my very own bedroom in a house) Thank U Simon and Diana, The Boathouse, The Nelson Ukulele Orchestra, All the folks who went to the show and Xan for drawing me this awesome piece she named “Uni’s Limousine”
Now I am back in Wellington!
I have a couple of shows here while I’m in town.
