Earlier in the year I had the pleasure and opportunity to travel out to Oz and NZ to present at TechEd. Firstly it was amazing to travel out and see such a fantastic country filled with excellent IT Pros asking some very interesting questions. It was a busy few weeks and I tried to take the opportunity to see the Gold Coast and Sydney in Australia and Auckland, Waitomo in New Zealand. 

I ended up delivering 6 sessions in total 4 of which were unique session.
