I haven't written about New Zealand at all, mainly because I've been having the best time ever so haven't had any time to, so here goes: I arrived in Auckland to a massive temperature shock, I'd gone from nearly 40•C to around 5! In the airport a massive security man came up to me and started grilling me about where I was staying, if I knew …

The only fact of the day I remember is that Lake Taupo can fit the whole of Singapore in it. The rest is a blur. Before I had chance to blink my name was put down to do the skydive. Next thing I knew I was debating whether to do the 12000ft or 16000ft as if my life depended on it. Bottom line is falling out if a plane is falling out of a plane. …

My alarm woke us up at 6:30am this morning which wasn't too bad as I was already awake I had been trying to get back to sleep but couldn't for a while. Jake skyped home from my ipad to say Happy 17th Birthday to Soph, they all were laughing at Sophie as she had been crying over the passport picture of herself that Allison had put on to her …

After driving for 4 hours from Wellington we reached Lake Taupo, still an hour away from the town of Taupo itself. The lake is absolutely massive- its the size of Singapore where theres a larger population than NZ! To put it into perspective, that would be the entire population of NZ and some all living in an area the size of the lake!!! The town …

    This hostel was alright. The room was fine but the beds were really rickety and noisy every time you moved in them. The kitchen is big but has no appliances. It has hobs but no ovens. It does however have a really nice sun deck off from the kitchen with nice views of the lake.

    The worst thing about this hostel is the noise. It is over the road from a really cheesy, crap nightclub playing horrible music. The windows let all the noise through, the hostel seriously needs to invest in some sound proofing! If you have any taste in music or any desire to sleep before 5am, think twice about staying here.
