After writing 61,500 words spread across 89 posts, my job is finally done. This will be my last post on the Platypus Man in New Zealand.
If you’re reading this it’s probably because you’ve been following our journey for some time, and I’d like to thank you for your company. I hope you’ve enjoyed the ride.
My blogging career continues. My weekly blog Now I’m 64 covers UK travel and wildlife, along with bits of history, social commentary and moans about the injustice of ageing. I can guarantee a few laughs, and also the occasional rant. Some of it’s quite well written (I don’t do modesty, life’s too short!) and Mrs P’s wonderful photos continue to feature prominently.

Speaking of Mrs P, she’s started putting her photos of the New Zealand trip on to Flickr. She took over 10,000, so there’s a lot of editing and a good deal of cursing going on. So far so good, but it’ll be months before she’s finished. Click here to visit Mrs P’s New Zealand album on Flickr.
If, having experienced New Zealand vicariously through this blog, you fancy seeing the real thing I can thoroughly recommend it. Our tailor-made tour was arranged for us by New Zealand in Depth, the Telegraph’s Specialist Tour Operator for 2019. They’re based in the UK but know New Zealand inside out, and are a very professional organisation whose expertise played a big part in the success of our adventure.

And with that I think it’s time for me to sign off for the final time: I’ve got countless hours of video to edit! Thank you again for joining me on our amazing expedition. I wish you a safe, healthy and happy journey, wherever your own road may take you.
With best wishes from the venerable Platypus Man:
