      OK - if you need to stay in the city centre. It was boked for us by nakedbus. Friendly and efficient staff. Nice bar in the basement. Good kithcen facilities, though there were lots using it at the same time and many didn`t quite relly know how to clear up after themselves - e.g. whiping cookers and work surfaces.

      Was the worst Hostel so far on my trip. It's very noisy and dirty there. Especially the kitchen is the dirtiest I've seen here in NZ. If you are in Wellington go to the Trek Global. Way better...

      Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long. We have been totally wrapped up in New Zealand. We have had such an awesome time with kiwi experience and have met lots of cool people along the way. In Taupo Dan and I decided to throw ourselves out of a plane at 12,000 ft! It was so incredible, I was nervous to start with but in free fall the feeling is just …

      This morning was a little stressful as I wasn't sure if I'd have a bed for the night as everywhere was fully booked. Fortunately, after waiting around for ages, Base said that they had less people than expected coming in so I was able to book another night. After sorting out accommodation, Lukas and myself caught the bus to the Weta Cave Workshop …

      We left Kaikoura early this morning and the journey seemed to drag a bit but we made a couple of stops along the way and saw some adorable baby seals. They were playing in the waves and chilling on the rocks which was lovely to see. At around midday we arrived into Picton to catch the ferry back to the North Island. However, there was a lot of …

      I miss my own bed! Sleep is a thing of the past, I was kept awake by people coming and going throughout the entire night and then woken up really early so I'm feeling pretty dead this morning! Realising I wasn't going to drop back off, I got up, had breakfast and read for a while. I then met up with Lukas and we went for a walk to the Te Papa …

      After barely any sleep, the last thing I wanted to do this morning was to get up ridiculously early and go white water rafting! With a lot of effort I eventually managed to heave myself out of bed and meet up with everyone in the wooden lodge! We then went to get kitted up in thermals and wetsuits which are definitely the most attractive things I …
