I'm here!! just. i was searched cos i was beeping at manchester... 7 hour flight ok then from sticky, sweaty dubai airport to sydney...another transfer...lost count of hours, but praise the lord for travel pillows (cheers mandy - good advice mum). then once i finally flew into christchurch i was sniffed by a bloody stupid sniffer dog and i was then fully strip searched... NO JOKE!
...then i got on't bus, got here and left my boarding jacket on the boooos, but i got it back... the hostel isn't as mental as i'd expected, but i did JUST get here... so tomo i will plan my excursion fully - either a kiwi experience or on more grown up version, but i reckon its the best way to meet people. i'm actually finding being on my own pretty cool though. i might even take myself for diner... sushi is just over t'road.. tempting............ over and out for now. xxxxxxxxxxxx
