It was also about this time we saw our first lot of snow capped mountains, almost next to the beach so that for me was an amazing experience.

    ... it boarded on rude but he definitely kept us entertained for the journey in the pouring rain with his bizarre kind of mad running commentary on equally bizarre irrelevant topics. Once we got to Wellington we checked into the hostel and did a inadvertent speed drinking session polishing off two bottles of wine in about 1hour followed by knocking over everyone's luggage as we stumbled into the dorm at midnight.
