This is the blog of Mark Wordsworm, the travelling worm. I’m a 25-year-old bookmark and can proudly boast my own Hallmark serial number, 95 HBM 80-1. You’ll probably want to read all about me and my Travelling Companion (the TC).

You may encounter a Kea parrot on your way to and from Milford.This one was patrolling the car park when we arrived at The Chasm:
The TC, of course, cooed and clucked over the Keas. This worm stayed safely in a book in the TC’s bag.
This Kea strutted up the roadside barrier while we waited our turn to go through the Homer tunnel on the Milford road:
That’s all for today dudes.
