just a very quick first entry as i dont have much time, to say that i arrived in auckland today and am loving new zealand so far! managed to survive two twleve hour flights but havent slept in about two days! We are staying in a central hostel, where the showers are in blocks and are too hot and turn off every ten seconds! Im sharing a room with people i havent even met yet which should be fun!Hong Kong was amazing, so much to take in. Its so clean and built-up and the people are so nice. Saw buddhas and temples and went on cable cars and ferries etc! Pictures will be up very shortly when i have a little more time! Tonight going to a free pizza and beer night at the hostel me and some others were going to buy a car and go up to the bay of islands while its still hot, then fruitpick back to south island.
Mum and dad - sorry i havent been able to contact you at all in the last three days, my phone didnt work in hong kong! I went to the vodafone shop today and they did something so now its working in new zealand. Mum i texted you i hope you got them and passed on the messages. Ill give you a phone tomorrow, ill try and make it a good time! probably be about nine-ish tomorrow night. Miss you already xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
