Hello from Wellington, North Island, New Zealand!!
Well the last time i wrote i was in Queenstown. From there i headed for Fox Glacier to stay for 2 nights and do the Glacier Walk. The hostel i stayed was pretyy cool - Ivory Towers it was called, very clean and had everything you need but it was cold!! Didnt do much else here apart from the Glacier walk but it was hard going so needed a few days to get over it haha!! It took about 90minutes to actually walk onto the glacier and it was up steep steps and rough terrain so i was glad to see the ice! the walk itself was pretty cool although we were only on the galcier for about 1 hour - well worth the $80, its not everyday you get to hike along a glacier!!
After Fox i headed to Nelson which was about 10hours away. This was really just a stopover point for me to sleep before catching the bus to picton then the ferry to Wellington the following day. The journey down the nelson was pretty cool. we stopped in many towns along the way, one in particular called Hokitiki were the Jade factory is and also the gold room were they have an 8.4 once gold nigget on display which we were allowed to hold!! Was cool it was pretty small but was heavy and is worth $32,000 - if it was mine i certainly wouldnt be letting ever tom, dick and harry in to cop a feel!! haha!! Anyway, finally got to Nelson about 730pm and the hostel picked me up from the bus station. Stayed at Tasman Bay Backpackers - a really nice hostel and would stay there again! Had to get up early again in the morning to get another bus to Picton then the ferry to Wellington. Finally arrived ion the North Island about 5pm then had to get the public bus the were i was staying. This was an absolute nightmare as it was raining so hard the water was nearly at my knees!!! i got absolutly soaked and didnt have a clue were i was going adn this all with a backpack on my back and my extra bag and my handbag - wasnt amused. The hostel im stayin at here is ok but leaving here on Saturday for Taupo. Not sure wats going on here but hopefully summink good! would love to do another skydive but cant afford it boohoo!!! Only in Taupo for 3 night then in Auckland for 3 nights then onto fiji wer i hope to get a tan!!! I miss the sunshine so i hope its nice and warm here although knowing my luck i get caught in a hurricane! Lets hope not haha!! xo
