Well im currently in Queenstown, New Zealand and having a great time!! I arrived in Christchurch on Tuesday night and stayed 2 nights at a hostel called Stonehurst. The hostel was grand, its just soooo cold here!! I didnt do very much in Queenstwon just went to eh cathedral and the art gallery which was nice. I got the bus from Christchurch to Queenstown on Thursday and went via Mount Cook so it was a very long day - about 10 hours on the bus. When i arrived in Queenstown i hadnt booked anywere to stay so just had to walk round a few hostels to see if they had any room - the first 2 didnt but the 3rd one did so was happy! its an ok hostel, a bit of a dup but its clean enough. So on friday i went and sorted out alot of the stuff i want to do in new zealand, spent a shed load of money but!!! On saturday i had my snowboarding lessons day. had such a great time i really want to do it again but dont have the time or the money !! my instructer was cool, dustin from the outh africa- he tried to take his time with eacj of u so i picked it up in the end but i fell down a whole lot!!! it hurts to when you fall over buti had a great sense of achievment when i could go right down the beginner run without falling over and doin my turns and everything - wobbly of course but no falling over!!! he said we all did really well for a first time group, well chuffed - i wana be a proffessional snowboarding now! hahaha!
Sunday i have booked my Skydiving which im really looking forward to altho its weather permitting - 12,000ft jump woohoo!!! On monday im due to leave Queenstown and head to Fox Glacier and on Tuesday im due to do the Glacier Walk, im hoping its not to strenuous as my fitness level is a big fat zero!!!On wednesday im do to head to Nelson (also in the south island) were il stay one night just then catch my bus to picton then the ferry to Wellington in the North Island. Then i thin iv about 7 day left to see the North Island then on to fiji. I let you all no if this all works out as things change all the time and after just looking at my bank balance i got the shock of my life so for the next 6 weeks il be living on bread and water and if i cant last that long on that il be home earlier than i thought!!!
Love and hugs and well have some pictures up soon xo
