It's Marks unofficial new Zealand birthday! Woop
Omg I forgot to tell you that when we were going through passport control in Sydney airport ( going to new Zealand ), the silly girl wouldn't let me through as she didn't believe it was me on my passport!, so she pressed a buzzer and another woman came to check it was me!! And she didn't believe me at first! I showed her my ID but thay have the same picture on which she wasn't impressed by , so she kept asking me loads of questions! I was so nervous then she finally decided it was me because of my eyelids and eyeballs! She said to the other woman" look it is her because she has folding eyelids" , I was 16 when it was taken With black hair so I do look kind of Thai, but you can see its me!!.
Haha anyway, can't remember where I got up too!, I'm sure I just repeat myself sometimes on this!. So we were supposed to leave taupo to go to river valley on the 17th at 09:00, that did NOT happen! The driver that we were supposed to be going with forgot to pick us up didn't he! So kiwi experience had to arrange for a mini bus to take us there, so we missed the lord of the rings walk which I'm actually gutted about even though I hated the films!.
We did get to river valley at about 4ish, the place we stayed in isn't a hostel it's an 'adventure lodge' they have really expensive rooms or a 6 bed dorm or a dorm that's called the orgy room! The orgy room was ten bunk beds all next to each other to make one huge bed! Luckily we didn't stay in that room!.
We didn't miss out on the white water rafting because it was done in the morning - which ment another early start!, the rafting was grade 4 and 5 which I think is the ingest grade you can get. There were four of us on the raft and then the guide. I didn't actually realise how technical it was just to go down rapids! We were on the river for 3 and a half hours and some of the rapids were huge! We got stuck at the most dangerous one and water was pouring into the boat, me. And the bot in front had to dive bomb onto the other side to equal out the weight and we had to be pulled by a rope to safety! It wasn't till after that they told us that 3 people had died in that bit!.
We both liked the black water rafting better , I thought the white water rafting would be a lot more scarier and faster than it was.
We are now on a boat on our way to kaiterteri!, Wev only got about 2 weeks left its gone so quick! Looking forward to all of my home comforts. Just the little things like not wearing flip flops, having two towels to dry, drinking nice water from the tap, not feeling the wooden or metal slats from a bed, not hovering over a toilet seat!,
