just a quick entry to let everyone know that after a great few days in taupo i have arrived in the loveliest and most remote little place called river valley, and have a job here doing general housekeeping for food and board for 2 plus weeks with polly! so im sorry i wont be able to phone as there is no signal. I will try and write every couple of days though. Going horse trekking tomorrow, thought mum would love that! i knackered my knee a little doing the eight hour walk but it was so nice and worth it! climbed up mount doom which was an experience! hope you get this blog, im not sure if the others are being published, leave me a comment and let me know. thats about it, so i hope everythings okay and ill email/blog again as soon as i can. Miss everyone!
