Today we had a touristy day of wandering around the shops, buying souvenirs and writing postcards. We then went to a cafe for a drink and I had the hugest, tastiest slice of chocolate cheesecake ever! I forgot how good the cakes are over here! Before we went out we made lunch in the hostel kitchen, and there happened to be two Italian chefs cooking their own lunches at the same time.. It was quite ...
... shop at 8am. I walked down to town and got my Ferg Bakery latte on the way. (Ferg forever!) I was very hopeful that it would be third time lucky for my skydive. The skies were clear, the wind was down and it was crisp and cool. Perfect conditions! At 8:30 they trucked us out to the drop zone.

A pretty good day it was - which after yesterday at Milford Sound means that we have been very spoilt these last few days. In fact the whole holiday has been really cool, apart from the fiasco we had with the first campervan. The weather has been amazing to us on the whole.
We will be hitting the west coast pretty soon!
