New Zealand has it all really
lots of mountains, trees, the scenery a brewery too

Captain James cook brewed a beer when he arrived for his men who had scurvy to drink

Captain James cook found NZ and OZ and sadly lost his life when the Hawaiins got him

Greymouth was a stopover more than anything else
we had a chance to learn about the green stone, which is the Jade stone, it is a very hard rock and the Maorii used it as their cutlery and everything else

everywhere in nz you go you see many peolp wearing this stone around their neck, it is beautiful and costs a lot!

in greymouth a collection and a workshop was on where you can see one of the most famous Jade designers and his stafff making pieces

As ive travelled down south i have applied for jobs
i applied yesterday in Greymouth
applying for anting, i applied for a supermarket, restaurant, it reminds me of the time i applied two years agi before i got the jobs i had back home to save up for this trip
you apply, and apply and apply its like a massive waiting game, you hope for somehting to come along

we also went to Monteiths brewery, one of the best things to do in Greymouth
it was great actualy!!
the beer tasting after was nice too
but it was interesting to see how beer was made
the yeast is churned and sits in huge continers
6 workers at this brewery which was interesting to know
they do love their job!!

today travelled down to Fox Glacier
arrived at 5ish so just put tent up and had dinner
