Sorry for not posting a blog in a while guys we've been having a great time travelling through New Zealand we haven't had the chance! When we left Auckland a few weeks ago we picked up the bus to take us to Whitilanga, a real nice place were we spent the night....we went on a short hike down to Cathedral Cove during the day, plus i got some work outta my skateboard zooming around the town, then in the night time we went to the local pub to watch The All Blacks stuff the Aussies!!!
After Whitilanga we set off to a place called Waitomo, we stayed the night in a nice place but the whole town was a bit boring so we left after one night to set off to Rotorua!
What a place! We were couchsurfing whilst in Rotorua with a cool girl called Kylie, we stayed in a huge house over looking the lake!! The whole town had bubbling mud pools all over it which was cool as was the spa that we payed around 10 pounds to chill at all day....it's a hard life this travelling malarky haha! After spending 3 nights with Kylie we pursued to the best place yet in my opinion....TAUPO!
Taupo was awesome, met a great gang staying at the hostel we were at, did my second bungy jump, the highest water touch in the world and also both of us did a skydive jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet....the best feeling ever!!!
We hung out with the gang from the hostel most nights as well as a few of the skydive instructors who were all cool! Oh plus we went on a little trek with some guy we met from the States who took us to a place were you could bathe in a natural spa which was great as it was so cold and to be chilling out in boiling water felt pretty good!!!
So upon leaving Taupo we booked one nights stay in Wellington with a few girls we met who were from Liverpool had a meal with them before leaving the following day to couchsurf again for a few days this time with a couple called Neil and Rose, they seem real nice too!
So I think on Saturday we are getting a 3 hour ferry across to the South Island of New Zealand to travel through that, it's meant to be snowing a lot down there so it should be fun!!!
Until the next time!!
