As I am sitting here writing a post about tap water quality in Cambridge New Zealand, I can''t help but reflect back on the first time I ever brought home bottled water. It was quite a while ago, but it still brings back some pleasant memories. It was purchased by a rather nervous friend of mine who was worried about the safety of his family. We''d had the same tap water problem ever since moving to New Zealand from England, so I decided to give him what he was asking for... and I got hooked.

It turns out that he was right, and there is nothing to worry about with tap water in Cambridge New Zealand, but it did make me appreciate the importance of bottled water in my life. It''s a nice thing to have around when you''ve gone away from home for a few days. I''m not going to go into the reasons why bottled water is better than tap water, but I will say that I have been drinking bottled water for over two years now. That''s pretty quick compared to most people, I guess
