i have the top bunk ! they have the rest of the van !
they are having a great time and are also speding way too much money......
we left auckland and travelled to rotorua where moored up next to a gorgoeus lake and then went on the mt ruhepu (something like that). this is a volcano (nz has lots of them). which erupted and spilled its entire contents all over the surounding area... not lava some other stuff... so being pommie tourists we decdied that we would just have to get to the top.. all very exciting.. listeeninbg very carefully for any rumblng sounds !
then as we were leaving we saw a pod of over 1000 dolphons.. now that was stunning. also managed to kayak amonsgt fur seals.. phew they were a litttle smelly....
then up and over the mountains to lake tekapo which is just so blue is unbeleiveable.
then on to queenstown .. fell in love with it staright away.. been lugeing shotover jet which is the legendary fass jet through the canyons.. even got mum on that !
then did a paraglide from 3000 feet... (thats runnning off a cliff attahced to a large kite and instructor... awesome.. followed that with river surfing... surfing a fast flowing river on a body board.. not so good got slammed and lost a tooth ! it really hurts..
anyway pizza has been ordered.. check out the photos.
