Saturday 28th April Journal brought to you by a very tired SophieMan sleeping in an airport is probably one of the worst things ever. Didn't get much sleep on the extremely 'comfy' benches and then had to get up at 4:15 to ring the Mother. See, you are ruining my sleep patterns OMF! Only joking I love talking to you - you know that :) We got on the plane at 6 and had a pleasant flight chatting to a girl called Rachel and then once in Brisbane I had a really embarrassing encounter when I couldn't afford to pay for a hot chocolate because I had put my money in a random pocket but luckily the guy obviously felt sorry for me and gave it to me anyway! We then got back on another plane and then we were in New Zealand. WOOOO! So exciting. We caught the shuttle bus to the hostel and then spent the afternoon getting to know the town and looking for a supermarket. Honestly it sounds like all we do is eat food and go looking for food but this is not true! We do other things, like the occasional sight seeing and the like... hehe. Whilst sitting in the kitchen we got to talking to a Scottish guy called Mich who eats herbs on toast (!) and a Canadian girl called Jen who dragged us out to the pub. There we met up with Cam and Jeff from our Fraser Island group! How small is this world! It was great to see them and hopefully we will be catching up with them later on in the trip.Very boring day I am afraid...
