OH THANK GOD! New Zealand has good beer guys! The beer is a go! What a freaking relief. These past few days have been filled with... well not much, lots of city wandering, lots of job searching, getting a bank account, getting a tax number, did I mention the beer tastes good?
Breakfasts are free for this week, every morning I take a trip to the Neo Espresso, give them my voucher and receive my coffee, toast, bacon and eggs. Pretty solid! Quite relaxing I say! Quite relaxing indeed...

The job searching is pretty good, apparently people with my resume can find some descent work. Mike, the guy a the job placement center at the hostel informed me that there is an opening for a marketing assistant type person at a Adventure Travel company up in the Bay of Islands, Piahia to be exact. This would be sweet. Lots ot good river and stream fishing there Tim. I was researching and one apparently has tonnes of pools that spinning is best in! Super stoked about that opportunity! Or just the fishing alone! Not the mention beaches and plenty of stellar views!
Now all we need is the weather to start behaving. Being Canadian I'm able to face this temperature in a tee shirt and shorts, the locals look at me weird. the fools, 18 degrees is warm and the sun is out, clearly shorts and tee shirt is appropriate!

Hey Mike
Mike, funny I was just mentioning to Mom that we hadn't had a beer report and she opened your recent message and I am now sure can survive the next 9 months. I thought I would have to have a new log in, but my one from your Aust trip was still good!! Take care Dad
