Bye bye New Zealand
We now sit in gate 32 of Sydney Airport waiting to board our plane for Bangkok. New Zealand has been absolutely amazing!! For the last day in Auckland we chilled out on Davenport beach and in the evening we had a few handles down by the Auckland verander (a.k.a. a viaduct - private joke). Waking up this morning made us all realise we were slightly more drunk than we initially thought - (for example, I spent at least 10 minutes trying to remember how I actually made it into my bed and recalled how I wasted the majority of sleeping time raiding the hostel's free food cupboard, finding a tub of nutella and using almost all of it on my one remaining slice of budget bread. Good times!!)
Despite feeling sad to leave such an amazing place we look forward to our next adventure in Thailand- riding elephants, scooting around on Tuk-tuk's, trekking through the jungle and NOT confusing women with men!! I can't wait.
As discussed in previous blogs, I actually plucked up the courage to do a bungy jump during our short stay in Taupo - NZ north island. I have uploaded the video to facebook. I am still quite shocked the fact I did it but it was such an awesome experience and I can't wait to share with people the DVD I bought as evidence - just in case you don't believe me!
See you in Bangkok,
Olly and the team!!!
