An Address For Christmas Packages

Being away from home for Thanksgiving was sad. But thanks to technology, video chatting with the family during Thanksgiving dinner made me feel like I was right there with them.

As Christmas comes around the corner, we will once again be away from family and friends. But we will be having our own little Christmas away from home via Skype video chat again.

If you'd like to take part in our Christmas video podcast, you can! There's two ways you can make it on the video.

1) Skype video chat with us. Just send me an email with your Skype name and we can set up a time to Skype on Christmas day. We'd love to share Christmas with you. And of course we'll be filming it to put it on the video podcast.

2) Send us a gift. We now have an address in New Zealand that will hold packages for us. We'll be opening our Christmas gifts for a Christmas video podcast that will come out around January 5. If you'd like to send us a little something just send it to the following address.

Sam Powers (and/or William Reinhard)
Poste Restante
N2 Post
24 Wellesly Street
Auckland 1141
New Zealand

Make sure to send it in time to get here before January 5th if you want to make it on the video podcast. Also, we're leaving for Australia on the 7th, so it'd be gone forever if it got here after that.

And nothing heavy please - we really do just have one big backpack to put everything. So either edible or small useful-for-travel things are recommended. Big glass paperweights with big bugs inside are not recommended.

Or, you can send a monetary gift to contribute to our shoestring budget if you like. And if you're really feeling generous, you can give the gift of dance and help me pay for the upcoming dance competition in Australia.

But if you are low on funds and don't have Skype to video chat with us, that's cool, we'd just love to hear from you. Being away from family and friends for a year is not easy and it really helps to get a friendly email - it always brings a smile to my face.

Gosh! I'd love to see you. You know how much we'll be missing you Christmas Eve. I'm being selfish, I know, because you two are having the time of your lives. Wish I had Skype so I could be part of the family get together too. Good luck in your dance competition in Australia. That's something I would have done. You must post a video of you dancing. XOXO
