Last two weeks has been very busy. My parents and my little brother came down to New Zealand and I met up with them in Auckland. From there we hired a car and drove all the way down to Queenstown and then up to Christchurch where I am right now. Of course we made a lot of stops on the way. First stop in Raglan, same hostel as we stayed at with Stray. Really a beautiful place. Then further south to Waitomo to show my brother the Waitomo caves. We did the 7 hours epic tour which was great. From there we continued down towards National park and did the Tongariro crossing. Good hike but a bit over rated in my opinion. As soon as we came to Wellington and started carrying out our bags from the car I hear someone scream my name. Turn around and there is Courtney! Turns out Maria lives just on the other side of our hostel. Later that night me and Maria goes out for a beer together with another roommate of hers. We ended up on a bar with awesome live music. At the south island we drove straight down to Kaikoura stopping for some sea lion spotting. Back over to to the west coast and yada-yada…. Franz Josef, Queenstown and now Christchurch.

Here in Christchurch I’m back living with Kirsty just counting the days until my flight to Samoa. Now the disaster is that I’m not writing on my own laptop, when unpacking it at Kirstys house it woudn’t start. Luckily all my photos where on my external hard drive.
