      We are working here and glad we are not paying for a room here.

      Karin is German and has been running the B & B for too long. She has just accepted an offer on the property which is a good thing.

      She is trying to run the place on her own using backpackers for cheap labour. We feel sorry for her as her partner is back home ill, so she's got a lot going on.

      Everything about the place is dated. The beds, mattresses, pillows, bedding, towels. It's a beautiful property....but its unloved.

      Breakfast consists of cereal, bread, juice (measured) and tea/coffee.

      95% of the guests we have spoken to her feel that the price is way too much and that Karin can be rude.

      Might be best to stay elsewhere.

      It was something completely new to me. I had to learn how to tell people I was gay, because it is part of who I am. I learned how to bring it up in conversation and not be awkward about it. I guess I had to build my confidence back up. I had this stupid feeling that all of a sudden people wouldn’t like me because I was gay. I was afraid of running into that person who would bully me, but it never happened. And life went merrily on.

      One thing we kept saying all the time was “this is so much like Scotland … but better”. Now I’m sure Herr Salmond and chums would have me arrested for being “anti-Scottish” for saying this, but the fact is that New Zealand ...

      ... a low-cost airline called Jetstar but itīs was more than fine because the journey didnīt last so long, only 3 hours. There is a 3-hour time difference between Gold Coast and Auckland so we landed in Auckland at 14.30 of the local time. At the airport we were welcome by some funny phrases, like for example: "Call your Aussie mates at Kiwi rates!" (Aussie = Australian, Kiwi = New Zealander).

      There are frequent shuttle buses transporting passengers from the airport to the ...

      So I've made it to Auckland, and it's finally starting to kick in. In just over a 13 hours I'll be in the USA, I'll be landing in Los Angeles where I'll be staying for a couple of days before heading to Vegas. Flight to Auckland was nice and it was great to see the blue sky after 2 days of rain and wind. It's hard to believe that the weather up here is so different to Chch. Sounds ...

      ... I told him I daren't do anything that could bring me bad karma. I arrived at work 2 hours early and decided I should probably go for a swim because its been a while since I have. It was great it was so warm out and so I was really refreshed. The rest of the day went by sooooo slowwwwlllyyyy. However, my mate Mills (former All Blacks rugby star) showed up with his kid. This is the guy I'd bossed around volunteering on Christmas Day! He smiled and said hi how are you, whether ...
