Jumping Off Stuff

A travel blog entry by james.arnold on Jul 20, 2015

... had been sucked into a massive vacuum. The plane bounced a little with the weight loss of losing 3 people at once. I was next....almost instantly we (my tandem man, Herb - a really cool and laid back guy with dreads), and me were in the same position. I put my head and legs back, in a banana shape, just like I was supposed to. He asked if I was good, I shouted "YEAHHH!" (more in fear than excitement) and that 'going over a bridge in a car' feeling came ...

... a free shot of a mix of spirits. While I was waiting at the bar with him for this I had the pleasure of trying the 'Michelle Madness' shot. This is a mix of 4 spirits in a cocktail shaker, named after the girl who drank this and lost a bet. This meant the guys at the bar sold tickets to all the men in town so they could watch her wash the windows naked. She did get to keep the money though so she must have made a killing!

Thankfully, the second half of the four hour ferry ride was far smoother and we were able to sit back and enjoy the rest of the journey. Just when we were about to book a flight home due to the ludicrously cold weather we entered Nelson in the South Islands. Here it was blues skies and sunshine and although it wasn't the 35 degrees in Asia, it was good enough! We're told ...

... long time sitting at the viewpoint admiring the mighty spectacle (as well as taking some photos of Dalai Dave and Seb's mascot, Kiwi Karl). Returning to the carpark, we said goodbye to Seb after exchanging contact details. Ben also said goodbye to the three-quarter sized guitar that he bought in Vietnam, giving it a new home with a pair of New Zealand-dwelling Scots who had been looking for just such a thing. Although he is sad to see it go, he doesn't play ...
