Well we are well into our time in Blenheim now, we are running the hostel now by ourselves which at he moment is going fine. Its pretty quiet here at the moment waiting for the workers and pruning season to begin. Iv finished working at he chocolate factory now which was an experience.
This week our German friend Laura from Taupo came to stay for a couple of nights with her friend. We had a lovely relaxing time and visited the wineries, it was better as they had a car and could drive us. The photos are on facebook. We all found that our favourite wine was the dessert wine as it was so sweet, we bought 3 bottles of different wine, at kurts request, i know and he doesnt even like it. The dessert wine the most expensive was 40 dollars about 20 pound but it tastes so good, like honey. Then a bottle we bought for 19 when we went to the supermarket was 36 crazy our must supermarkets put up there prices. It was lovely weather and a lovely day, the best so far in Blenheim. With us making more than we originally thought we may leave blenheim now before august, depending on whether kurt gats any pruning work, ther not very good with paying in nz vineyards lol.
Anyway aboout Taupo they had some horrendous weather last week it was so windy. JB sent us some photos and the gum tree which was huge in the car park blew over and ripped the roots out it missed the car by inches and just pissed the neighbours jet ski lol.
We keep thinking whether to stay or not we will have enough soon if we wanted to and with the economy being the way it is, but i think missing family will bring us back and wanting to settle again, well for a bit i am dieing to go to Thailand now and South America after meeting people, but kurt says only for holidays, i suppose he is right. But dad your right before i came i just wanted to go on relaxing holidays each year sit back ont he beach or by the beach sipping cocktails now i want to go on holidays with adventure, trekking and danger lol, well kind of. This has been an amazing experience so far i have done things i never thought i would do and seen some amazing place, Im just so glad i made this decision and kurt decided to come along with me, Thanks Sabrinia for encouraging him.
Well im off now need to do some cleaning and making beds, i know so glamourious. Now my boss has bought us a web cam i will leave skype on, sorry mum i missed you.
Love you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
