The day after New Zealand’s first annual food bloggers conference and I have the same feeling the day after Christmas or when you come to the end of a really good book. What a day it was, 26 people you have only conversed with on Internet, coming together as stranger but leaving as good friends….a big family even.
I think I am just winding down, beer in hand and good French cheese and bread on the table waiting come to room temperature. Even though there is an empty space where the conference organising build up sat for months, I have warm fuzzies from all the friends I made on the day and the enthusiasm they all have for next years conference. We already plotted into the small hours of the morning after the event for next years, where did we find the energy?

A few pics from the day, although I was a distracted there were many take by everyone else.
A list of attendees where you are likely to hear more about the conference on their blogs so do drop by.
