We first want to say RIP to Heath Ledger x
Well we havent been up to too much since last time. we were meant to go Whale watching in Kiakora but it got cancelled as the weather was bad and the sea was really rough. Was looking forward to doing that but you cant argue with mother nature. We then headed for our 3 hour ferry crossing from the Soth island to the North island. we landed in Wellington around 5pm and got dropped off at our hostel. Was so cool as bumped into ruth and Orla again so we are now only a day behind them whcih means we will see them more in the North island.
We had a day in wellington and sorted out our stuff for the States where we have hired a car whcih is very exciting. we then headed to the Tepepa museum whch is meant to be the best in New Zealand. It is massive and very impressive but have to say wasnt the best i have been too. We then did a bit of window shopping and headed back to hostel to cook dinner. As you can see we havent done anything too exciting. we had a very inconciderate guy in our room and he kept turnign on the lights and making loads of noise in the early hours so we werent best pleased so wasnt quite when we got up early to catch the bus.
Today we headed up the North island towards Taupo. It was a long drive and the north island doesnt have the spectacular scenery although we did drive past the volcano used for Mount Doom in Lord of the Rings which was cool.
We have been trying very hard to get sheep pics but as we are on a bus when we see them they dont always come out but we can asure u that there are lots here.
Well today we have just done a skydive and are on a real high. It was absolutly amazing and one of the best things if not the best thing we have done. It took about 20mins to get up to 15000ft then we jumped out of the plane and had a 60 sec freefall before the parachute was opened and we travelled to the ground. All in all it took about 5 mins to get to the ground but the journey falling through the clouds and then the ground appearing is just amazing we loved every second of it. The photos are so funny but absolutly loved every minute of it.
We are now spendign 2 days in Taupo to chill out before heading to Rotorua next so speak to you soon x
