Cold? Cold? u bet it's cold! I got up this morning in my sleeping bag and i could see my breath hovering overhead!! Oh and don't bother with the gloating e-mails about the apparent heat wave covering the UK at present, I have had it all many times B4. One thing i have experienced for the first time and is not to laughed at is Jet-lag!! Boy is it weired! I get out of bed at 10 am and by 2pm can hardly stand up, knackered!
Well I have left Auckland part 1 which among the highlights of catching up with Simone and making use of her generous nature and washing machine we have had a great couple of days where I saw Phiha (sp?) beach with Lion Rock either on the left or right (private joke sorry Mone) then on to Mount Eden, Mission Bay and an aborted attemt to walk in to the city to scale the Skytower (I was sick, i think cause of the tap water, not the empty JD bottle in the Kitchen.) I will attempt the tower again in Auckland the return visit. I have moved on to Christchurch which seems nice and i will spend two days here as the Kiwi-experience bus only leaves on Fridays and i will have to cram after that to do it all in 7 days. A bit of Ski-ing might be done and a heli-hike in Franz-Josef so this is really a prelogue rather than a travelogue sorry.
This feels like the real start of a backpacking holiday as i have been mainly on organised tours since leaving the UK and having to find my own way from the Airport to the Hostel was a new experience if a very easy one! how i am going to cope in Singapore and India???
I will try the photo's soon as i have now got an extensive range from Africa and a few from Auckland especially requested by Julie! they are great even if Mone didn't want them taken! ha ha c ya A
