The Adventures of the Little Cardiff Giant in New Zealand
The Little Cardiff Giant recently wound up his travels through New Zealand. Some pictures are below.

As you may remember, his world tour started in Southern California, then he went to Perth, and then NZ. His next stop, if all goes according to plan, is Melbourne.







My administrative duties as the coordinator of his tour went a little awry at first. I should have created a master list of everyone who volunteered to host him, but instead I just let emails accumulate. So now I'm trying to piece together a list retroactively. This is what I have -- but if I missed someone, or you want to be added to the list, let me know.

  • Alex -- San Diego
  • Nettie -- Perth
  • Sean -- New Zealand
  • G Beattie -- Melbourne
  • C Barrett -- Melbourne
  • M Anto -- Brisbane
  • J Scharff -- Japan
  • C Morgan -- British Columbia
  • Oppiejoe -- Michigan
  • Tah -- Idaho
  • dbrunker -- Portland
  • Crafty Dragon -- Montana
  • G Pylant -- Texas
  • K O'Brien -- Philadelphia

You dont have a southern/eastern state - I would love to have him in South Carolina!

I can do Kentucky, including Mammoth Cave and several bourbon distilleries!

Heh. I suppose I should've sent you an e-mail that I'm willing to participate instead of commenting on the blog posts. My mistake.
Anyway I guess it's better that way. I may have lost him if he was sent all the way to Estonia.

Will be looking forward to further photographs of his travels. smile I think it's a very neat idea you've got there.

Cliodna -- It would be great if the giant could make a stop in Estonia and visit you. I'll add you to the list. But it'll probably be a while before he's finished touring around Australia and Asia.

I'd be willing to host in Wisconsin and take some pictures with him at the capital!
