Where I stayed
In the evening I ended up sat in the kitchen with my Finnish room mate, a young German girl and a Dutch guy about my age and shared travelling stories and beer – Tuis here have trivia questions on the bottom of the lid which is a brilliant icebreaker. Anyway I can’t even remember what story I told it was so embarassingly boring compared to the guy spending a night handcuffed and chained in prison before being sent back home having attempted to sneak into the US with the wrong visa and the German girl who flipped her car over in the middle of the countryside, had to run up miles of road covered in blood until she found someone to help and was then taken pity on by a woman in the hospital who took her home and nursed her back to health! The Finnish girl didn’t have any stories, but she couldn’t understand why the family she had been working for started acting colder before finally sacking her a few weeks after she crashed their car. Hmmm.
Sadly from there the night escalated somewhat as we headed out to an Irish bar, bonded with some Maori girls, ran home and climbed some trees which in retrospect may have been in somebody’s garden. I didn’t run to Huka falls in the morning but I did have to run for the bus.
