      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...

      What a difference a few days can make. When trying to describe our recent state of mind Tom would use: Plodding along. New Zealand has had its effects on us both in different ways but 'plodding along' runs through and is a vague yet appropriate phrase to use. We haven’t been inconsolably unhappy every night and we haven’t been …

      Bridge’s originals had disbanded on the Wednesday as well over half of the first bus had been up before 7am to catch the ferry from Wellington to Pincton and begin their journey around the supposedly superior South Island. Meanwhile, Junior and I were among a much smaller group that would be staying put and the majority of us had a lie-in …

      I haven't written about New Zealand at all, mainly because I've been having the best time ever so haven't had any time to, so here goes:
      I arrived in Auckland to a massive temperature shock, I'd gone from nearly 40•C to around 5! In the airport a massive security man came up to me and started grilling me about where I was staying, if I …

      This morning we get up early to go white water rafting on the Rangitikei River, famous for its steep and technically demanding rapids... We have so much fun and its not as difficult as I thought it would be, though there were a couple of hairy moments when some of us nearly fell out of the raft :-/ but we all managed to stay in and were named the A …

      Long day today, long journey to Picton to get the ferry, then had a few hours waiting for the ferry and then nearly 4 hours on the ferry (which stunk!); tried to sleep and then woke to find this strange gypsy looking boy staring me right in the face! Finally got to Wellington, had a walk around the city at night with Adam and Astrad which was nice and then an early night.
