I think, I hope, I haven't forgotten anything so far, Im sure I'll get there and find I have forgotten something but hopefully it wont be something of great importance!!

I cant wait now...looking forward to all the white sands and hot sunny days:) I had an email from Emirates a while ago now, saying they were offering me complimentary accommodation in Dubai due to a long wait in the airport, so that sounds good to me!...I've also booked my first couple of hostels too. I've decided to stay just outside Auckland, in Mt Eden, for my first few nights. It's a quiet part of the city but still within a bus journey from all the shops of course:) So after some sight-seeing and shopping, I'll be heading north to Paihia in the Bay of Islands, where I'm thinking of staying for a week. It looks like an amazing place to be, with plenty to do! I thought it would be really good to explore all the islands my boat, and so i set to finding something suitable. I found a site, for a tall ship based in Paihia that does day trips out from there. It looks an amazing experience and something ive always wanted to do! Thats on the 28th of November, so look out for the pics:) Im also planning on doing some kayaking up here, of course, make it feel like home a bit! Then, a day trip to the Kaori forests and Cape Regina, before thinking about heading south to continue exploring!

My rucksack's not as heavy as I thought, which is always good! And, I've very recently sold my car, which of course will bring a massive boost to my traveling budget, although it is wired not seeing it in the car park!

So, just counting down the days now! I'll keep you posted:)
