      ... filming us and another guy who jumped with us and filmed from a short distance away. My instructor was called Chris. I was petrified but had to remind myself of their saying- 'Fear is temporary achievement is permanent'. I also had "just jump" written in pen on my knuckles in case I forgot what I needed to do!! It was an unbelievable feeling with the ...

      ... forests, waterfalls, rivers - it was like the combination of 4 or 5 different country's landscapes. The pictures will really speak a lot more than I can ever write! New Zealand is crazy in that it seems around every corner there is some new and amazing to see, another new landscape.

It doesn't smell as bad, but it is a bit more deadly. That's right, we live life on the edge!  We walked down the river and saw the beautiful Hukka Falls, and around the steam valley of "Craters of the Moon." Before we left ...

      ... ferry to the small island of Wahiki. We spent the day cycling up and down (and then back up and back down) Wahiki's many many hills. While this day experience was enjoyable, it has made me realise that I do not belong on a bike. I feel like I'm really starting to find myself on this trip (see mum I'm learning so much)!
      From Auckland we took a 4 and a half hour bus ride to Rotorua: a 'city' which reeks of rotten eggs, nonetheless hosts a ...
