This morning I set off from Auckland, on my Magic Bus with a driver called Chops. Very entertaining guy but a bad driver, one girl even got sick. They dont appear to do straight roads in NZ. The scenery is stunning. Very, very green and to be honest not many sheep!. Very hilly and mountainous aswell. Anyway, the bus is taking me to Waitomo about 4hrs south of auckland. Im staying in a really nice hostel called Kiwi paka. Its good to get away from the rain in Auckland. In Waitomo its glorious but still a bit nippy. I did a short 3hr trek, without getting lost!, this afternoon, altough I did have to confront on fear and walk through a field of cows! but well worth it for the veiws. Theres not much to Waitomo 5 shops, the hostel, a hotel and a caravan park. And the caves, which is what everyone comes here for, me included. Early night tonite got to be bright and breezy for my caving!
