we are currently sat in aukland airport all geared u and ready for fiji!but first its blog time (not my favorite time to say the very least)
since maxes last blog we got the ferry to wellington and thought it would be best to rent nice and cheap car so frst thing we went on the hunt for one and found wuite a good deal that we would be then collecting the next day! meanwhile one of the people(gaz) we had met in rio and beunos aires and we had stayed in contact with (via facebook) was coincidently in wellington at the same time in a hostel just up the road! so we planned to have a few speights' with him witch turned into him agreeing to come on a little 5 day road trip with us up to just where he had come from!
so we woke up bright and early to collect our shiney little beaten up rental car! as we where driving back into wellington centre to collect gaz (if he was still up for it) for the big road trip on our way back though we where driving allong all nice and happy with the radio on when suddenly a big 4 by 4 started backing out and all we could do was sit in the car and give out little yelps while he back strait into out front bumber causing minor bumps but max and i thought we might have 2000 dollers taken off us!
after a dramatic start we collected ourselves and then collected gaz and set off in the direction of taupo which we would spend the whole day driving to and i ended up in a tent in some random lookout point while max and gaz where all warm sleeping in the car! (fair deal?)
the next day we decided we where going to go kayaking on lake taupo to view the moari stone carvings! it turned out that they where 4 hours away so we just ended up renting the kayaks for an hour and just messing about dunking each other and having races to poles and all sorts of crazy stuff! after we where quite cold to say the least so we decided to head to the FREE hot springs (by now anything that is free is definately worth doing for me and max) so we headed out to the hot springs after beng sent to some expensive ones and had a little chillaxing session! that night we decided to head up to waitamo caves area but wanted a dominos pizza too bad because appernently there was a good deal on so we ended up in hamilton for the night.
the next day we set off to where the shire bit of lord of the rings was (matamata) in the hope we would get into it for around 20 dollers! to our shock it cost 60 dollers so we ended up taking a few pics of the hobbiton sign then scarpering before our bank balances took the punishment! after that we headed up to coromandel hot water beach and had a swim (which nearly ended our lives but i wont mention it as you all might be too worried about it) that night we went and camped (not too sensibly) right next to a motorway.
the next day we set off to one tree hill (not mine or maxes choice it was gaz who had a little bit of a gay obsession for one tree hill the tv show) after taking a few pictures of gaz next to his booved one tree hill sign we set off into aukland centre to get everything done like laundry and all that!
so after abit of a night out last night which ended up wth gaz missing his flight to christchurch here we are in aukland airport! im sure max will have lots to write about in the next blog as its my big 19th!
hope all is good in england or whereever the person is who is reading this!
