Hi from New Zealand!Â having the most fantastic time here.Â Appreciating every minute of the end of my trip- its all gone far too fast!
We had a great time with our family in Brisbane- we were very spoilt! Was brilliant fun having a big reunion, especially mum and her cousin Vic after so many years.
Â We flew from Brisbane to melbourne and i met up with my mad, dutch friend Ruben who i'd met on Fraser island.Â He showed me the fantastic, night time sights of the city and i went on the neighbours tour which was excellent (check out the vid of one of the actors and me with a special message for lucy).Â Me, mum and dad went on the great ocean road day trip which was a lovely day out and the scenery was spectacular.
Â i was soooooo sad to leave oz as I'd fancied myself becoming a bit of a Sheila....
Got to christchurch late and started on my kiwi experience bus around both islands.Â i've had the craziest, most hilarious bus trip and loved every minute! Met some lovely girls and we're doing the whole trip together which is awesome.Â Also been travelling with 3 Ponty boys ( fellow welshies-yipee!) and 3 farmers who are all great fun. Our bus driver Hoki is only young and brought his dad along for the ride to show hime what his job involves.
So far we've been to lots of lakes and treks down overflowing rivers...... i do miss those beaches! we had a massive bus party at this horrible hotel we stayed at called the POO pub (you know it Fflur and Hannah!) totally random- the landlord is this 84yr old man called les who is slightly strange?!
we also hiked up the Franz Josef glacier which was incredible! we slid down ice holes and had to cut our own steps in the ice.Â 4 friends from hu stu were on the same day hike too- very random!
I've been quad biking and got very muddy and fell off lots. Â Hoki made me do a BUNGY!!! i did the original one off a 43m bridge, it was absolutely fantastic!!!
Been in queenstown a few days now and been lugeing (sp?) which was great fun apart from when Hoki drove me onto a load of rubble so i lost! so unfair!
We went to Milford sound yesterday whcih was beautiful, we saw wild dolphins and seals.Â The scenery was just like Lord of the Rings.Â
Been out quite a lot here in queenstown and met up with nick and vicky that i travelled with in oz.Â there's this cool bar called world bar where they serve the cocktails out of teapots!Â We're out tonight for a bus meal then to the ice bar which should be fun.
Sorry this is a bit boring- my brains turned to mush!
Hope you're all great and i'll see you real soon ....xxxxxxxxxxxx
