We've just arrived back in Auckland today, staying here for 3 nights before flying to Sydney on 28th. NZ has been amazing and I really dont want to go! could quite happily stay here for ever (not that I wouldn't miss you Mum & Dad of course!!!!) Oz has a lot to live up to if it's to even come close to the time we've had here.
Since the last blog we have walked over a glacier, done the Nevis bungy - 3rd highest in the world at 134m - we now get 20% off doing the world's highest in Hong Kong at an extra 100m higher, and as this is on our route we will have to give this a go! we have been white water rafting on the Rangitata River- so much fun! Only one person fell out the boat (not me or Nos) but we did decide to capsise the boat near the end - and as the water is fed from glaciers you can imagine how flippin cold it was!!
one of the highlights has to be the dolphin swim in Kaikora - we were in the water for 45 mins with the dolphins and they would not leave us alone. apparently we were really lucky as they usually get bored! at one point i had 4 of them circling only a foot away from me! if only i had an under water camera!!
well, this blog has been quite long by my standards so I'll leave it there as I know it's boring reading these things!!
next update from Sydney - hope you're all well
Daz and Nos xx
