Kia ora Ian
Welcome to New Zealand. As a descendant of McFadyens of Mull I intend to be undertaking your journey in reverse, and will be on Mull in August this year. I am sure you have a carefully planned itinerary but I am in the Dunedin phone book and would offer hospitality to you, if it suited. Enjoy your time in our country. I just wish we could offer better weather than we have experienced recently.

A quick update at the request of one of our listers.
Left Mull Saturday 25th February. Arrived Auckland via Melbourne not Sydney
as planned, Wednesday 29th February some 24 hours late. As part of this
adventure we clocked into the same hotel in Dubai three times. Have to say
the flights and crew were excellent but the ground crew literally did not
know left hand from right. Airline will be receiving a stiff letter from me
Have seen quite a bit of North Island despite the late arrival. Heading for
Wellington tomorrow for a week and then South Island.
I can see why folks say that New Zealand is so much like Scotland.
