Fear is temporary...achievement is forever

A travel blog entry by erotergum


... I'm always prepared). We waited 45 minutes and our bus was ready. We literally got the bus straight from there to the sky diving place. As if that hadn't been enough excitement for one day! We had to wait around for a while because there was a massive queue as its been to windy beforehand. I didn't feel nervous, perhaps I was too tired. We watched all the safety video etc and decided what songs to have for our video. Then we got suited and booted and ready to rock and roll. ...

A travel blog entry by fernm

Thankfully it finally started to clear and we were rewarded with ...

A travel blog entry by katandpete


... claim with legs that were still complaining from the last one. The weather stayed nice though so it was a more successful venture than One Tree Hill in Aukland. :-) We spent the afternoon in a slightly less energetic way wandering round the Te Papa National museum. It is free admission and great fun. It's designed for kids so have lots of interactive exhibits. Pete and I were in our element! We saw a colossal squid and various other highlights including ...
