    The Haka

    The Maoris are a very proud people; many are of mixed race which is clearly notable in their faces. In 1642 The Dutch explorer Abel Tasman arrived on New Zealand's shores.

    ... There were cyclone warnings for the entire weekend but our hostel was booked as we also really wanted to skydive there.

    ... said it would be a limo but there was too many people, slightly gutted but by this point I was too nervous to care. We stopped at another hostel to pick up 3 guys - they weren't even awake when the driver knocked on their door! They were then asking if they could pay in USD as they had been out drinking the day before and spent all their NZD! Classy people... So we eventually got to the airport, I was nice and calm - until they showed the safety video ...
