Hi everyone... here's our final blog from Newzealand!..
Since the last blog, we have travelled north from the South island and upto the 'north' island... strange that huh!...
The North island has been amazing, we've had a wicked time!... we arrived in Welleington (south of the north island) then had to express it upto Auckland (top of the North island) in a day, which was a killer. There we had a few days to see the town and go back to the Ozzy to get gem's cast re-done. Then it was back on the bus to Hahei where we had great weather so spent the afternoon on the beach, and found a rope swing over the beach toward the water which kept me amused for ages!
Next day we went to Raglan for some Surfing... this was wicked, i got stood up a fair ferw times, though feww off a few more! - poor Gem was grren with envy as she really wanted to do this but her arm obvoiusly wouldn't allow!
The following day we headed to Waitomo caves where i went caving, again this was amazing, absailing down water falls jumping into pools squeezing through tiny gaps and army crawling through tiny cracks!... again Gem had to do the OAP friendly version, though she saw some amazing glow worm tunnels and went for an underwater boat ride!.. later that day me and another guy from the bus 'Zorbed' together!... this is a massive ball you jump into and roll down a steep hill... there is a few gallons of water in the ball to make it more fun!... it was a right laugh! if you want to know more... google zorbing! We've had a great bus load of people we've been touring with too, so that's made it for us aswell...
I did another Skydive to finish the tour off too!...
We are off to fiji tomorrow for some much needed 'chil out' time!... though i'm not sure if i feel ready to leave Newzealand yet! :(
We have been back to the hospital today and you will all be relieved to know Gems arm is healing well!... it's a little painfull but she's coping!... infact she's having her hair done right now for a wee'pick me up!'
I'm not sure what the interweb facilities are going to be like in Fiji - as some of the islands don't even have power, let alone tinterweb!
Hope everyone back home is good... looking forward to seeing you!... esp Finlay!
