Hi there, arrived into wet and wonderful NZ, AKL where we were met by Sty and Jonny who had actually arrived a day early to pick us up ha ha!
They whisked us off to a place called Whangamata (Coromandel Peninsula) where it was nice and hot! Jonny had booked a stylish white washed bach for us to stay in, complete with nice views of the beach. Had a quiet night in and once again celebrated Bennett's birthday with a cake.
The next day was spent at Cathedral Cove and hot water beach. Cathedral cove was down a long steep bushwalk complete with kissing gates so lots of snogging there and back!!!!!! Cathedral cove is an archway cave cut out of the rock which you can walk through to get to another part of the white sandy beach. IMPRESSIVE! Jonny smart arse thought it would be funny to drop me in the water - BAD MOVE! After waiting to be rescued by my mates i realised they were just filming me :( BITHCHES!
We then went for some lunch got a bottle of wine and headed down to hot water beach. This is where a natural hot thermal spring bubble up through the sand creating hot steamy pools (stolen from guide book ha ha!!!) The idea is to dig a pool close enough to the tide to allow the sea water to mix with the spring water and create a hot thermal bathing area :) Ours however was crap, it kept flooding and we got bored so we went swimming in the freezing cold sea instead and attempted to body surf as the waves were AMAZING! Roundy and Bennett lost their costumes and dignity in the process - we are all def closer now ha ha! I however was bloody perfect and fantastic at it in every way!
After freezing our arses off doing that we had the genious idea of gate-crashing someone else's pool - was AMAZING. Got smashed at the bach that evenin and roundy was brilliant at that!
Next day we went to a bushwalk to Wentworth falls which was like being indiana jones territory lots of vines funny looking trees and a masssive jumping spider plus funky river crossings to manoeuver - Bennett fell in no surprise there ha ha! At the end of our walk there was a two tiered waterfall aka the Wentworth falls - AMAZING! Evening was spent drinking and taking the piss out of NZ TV.
Next day was taken back to AKL where we were taken to sample the night life it had to offer. Jonny and Stu showed us the sights including the Sky Tower, Marina and Pontenby.
We have now started our Kiwi experience adventure will update soon.
Bye for now K,K,K XXX
