Welcome to the blogosphere from a New Zealander on the swim team at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. I'll try and keep this updated with pictures, results and thoughts from a kiwi living in the states, and the ice.

How to fit your life into 158cm
Four bags 158cm and 23kgs each plus hand luggage. Top of the list vegemite and Cadbury chocolate. I said to Dad, "You can take a change of undies and spare shirt, the rest of the space is mine" he negotiated to include a few changes of clothes and a toothbrush as well.
In the end we got it all to fit and just within the weight limits thanks to a great discovery of vacuum pack bags!
All packed and ready to go, there are lots of people I am going to miss but I think there is someone that is going to miss me a lot.
