One Tree Hill - but without the tree !

I went up One Tree Hill in Auckland recently which was great. However I know I sometimes get things wrong but shouldn’t there be a tree on One Tree Hill ? There used to be one until 1999 when someone cut it down. There must have been a real shortage of timber ! It was actually a Maori activist who took offence to a Maori sacred site being westernised. Ah well, it was a nice walk. I must let U2 know as they will have to rename their song now to One "treeless" Hill !

Hi guys! Reading up on your travels, it sounds like you're having such a great time.
You’re missing the most amazing weather here: if it isn't lashing rain it's heavy and sticky heat, but either way it's grey and dull. How much do you regret missing the Irish summer?!

Good to hear you're all doing well (and clearly getting Ethan off to a quick start on the binge drinking. That'll stand him in good stead for his teens!).

Enjoy the rest of your trip and I’ll be in touch again.

We got back yesterday from from Clare where we were at a conference called "Summer Fire". We had a great time with good weather and very good teaching so feeling inspired! Sounds like you guys are having a blast between looking at trees or climbing hills named after tress, you just can't shake the urge! Looking forward to catching up. The world is now ok again that England are koncked out, it has been uneasy last three weeks in the spiritual realm.

Lots of love G L and R

Well actually, although 'one treeless hill' sounds great, us locals tend to call it 'none tree hill' instead! :)
