helloooooooooo! (28th Jan 2008)
once again a bit of a quick one as its 10:30pm here and we are a wee bit shattered due to a long day flyin! we are officially 13 hours ahead of you, so mum plimley, add an hour on and then change it to am/pm opposite of home. lol.
the flights today did not go to plan at all, but no traumas thankfully. our flight from singapore to sydney was running 20 mins late when we checked in, which meant we would miss our connecting flight to auckland as there was only an hour in between anyway. so, the woman got us sorted to have about a 2 hour wait before our change over, all was well. boarded on the flight to sydney we were running actually about an hour and a bit late by take off, so its a good job we changed. got to sydney, and after the delays we literally had time to abuse free internet and make a phonecall at the airport before gettin our flight here to newzealand.
collecting our bags at newzealand wasnt fun... sams wasnt there... so... we waited for the next flight, an hour later as it was apparrently on there with them. and it was! woo! happy days!
we got the bus to the hostel, which is bizzarre! big, busy, and just like some kind of uni (again) but it really is pretty big! we will take photos and let u see for yourself. we went to the supermarket earlier and bought food to cook in the big kitchen, we went cheap... a loaf, a tin of beans and sausage and the cheapest cheese. lol. thats beans n sausage n cheese on toast for tea, toast for brekkie and cheese on toast for dinner tomorro! bargain! lol. ah the student/backpacker life! lee and mel, u would hate it here! lol. its full of studenty know it all type travellers, well not full but there are enough, instantly annoying. lol. but all part of the fun.
so, we are now trying to plan our newzealand kiwi experience itinery (dont think thats spelt right) and we dont really kno wot we are doin lol. oops! so we are settin our alarm for the mornin to go the travel agents and get it sorted, so we can tell you all about the fun we get up to here!
i think we are now going to try and upload some photos so fingers crossed, they wont b very exciting tho, b warned! and hopefully they will b the last of our pasty british bodies, before we are newzealand sunkissed!
nite nite everyone, well, good morning for you! much loves, tess and sam xxx
ps, please ignore the typos, its just quicker not to go back and correct anythin. lol. xxx
