After my return from Sydney on the 6th Jan I decided to chill in Wellington until my volunteer work began on the 14th Jan, just exploring the sites and doing things which I would do at home, going to the cinema it was a nice do normal things for a change lol! After my relaxing period I left my new friends for abit and went to my volunteer accomodation which was lke a uni house in the Lower Hutt region. The people in the house were mainly English which was alittle disappointing but they were fairly nice. Although strangely seemed different to the normal type I was used to meeting in hostels. Throughout the 2 weeks of working I did a variety of work mainly based on removing harmful weeds in natioanal parks but we also did a couple of interesting jobs such as designing a track for a mountain bike track, wood mulching (which was more fun than interesting but enjoyable), track maintanance and possom hunting.
