Squealin' in New Zealand

A travel blog entry by jrocci on Jul 19, 2014

... walked to a nearby volcano, which resembled more of a grass-covered crater than what I typically picture a volcano to look like. As expected, New Zealand has endless amounts of green hillsides, but since I was in a relatively big city I had only seen more of a concrete landscape.

... who all looked like unkempt hipsters playing a trumpet for hours. And hours. And hours. And tents dear reader aren’t exactly soundproof…

I was awoken the next morning by Debbie shaking me violently: ‘Suzi! Suzi! It’s 5:45am, I didn’t set the alarm on my phone properly.’
