      we liked the location right opposite the Q1 building & right next to the beach. the kitchen was of ok standard and the bedding etc was clean. we just didnt like that you couldnt bring your own alcohol into the hostel as they have their own bar and the prices of the drinks in their bar are quite expensive and the drinks are understocked!not a very sociable hostel!

      ... cutting some funky dance moves getting herself kicked out we creased and went to the last bar called Cocktails and dreams. We all get suitable drunk and bump in to my old school pal Alex who lived here a few years now. The boys head back and I took a walk back with Alex along the beach seeing the sun rise!! Bit late but never mind. Pass out asleep to be woken by the boys ripping me for the "gaaaayyy" walk ...

      ... lass at the counter said 'your meals have been paid for, I am not allowed to say who paid for them except that they wish you a pleasant day and that it is a 'random act of kindness'. How lovely is that?

      Week 2
      Arrived this week and still no real activity. We are not concerned as Chris has other 'little' jobs to do like quick insurance jobs on caravans. He told us this was to be the case and was his 'bread and butter' work. So no worries.

      ... everything packed and ready last night, I woke up at 3AM and threw on some clothes and made the 20 minute walk to Civic train station. The train came at 4:02 and the others (Brooke, Derek and Nathanael) got on at Hamilton. We went straight to the international airport, which took up until about 7AM.

      ... sort myself out. As it gets closer to the evening the reps run round the hostel, obviously on a decent commission, recruiting people to sign up for their crazy night out. The people that seemed to be going out and who were already playing drinking games at 4pm were generally pretty grim, loud and cocky and even back in England they weren't really my sort of people. I would have been much more enthused about all this when ...
