    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.

    Today we went for breakfast at the most amazing little cafe called Taste. It was right on the waterfront so the views were to die for, the coffee was hot and the menu was impressive with all organic and local produce used. I had the energy breakfast which was- seeded rye bread topped with beetroot salad, avocado, poached egg and pumpkin and …

    This morning we stayed in bed until 8.30am because we got zero sleep last night and tried to rest as long as we could before our extreme day today. We had breakfast at a near by cafe before being picked up from our accomodation by the Taupo Bungy van. We got driven to a secluded section of Huka falls where we got weighed and then fitted for the …

    I'm writing this at 2.30am because we can't sleep. Our accomodation is in the most central and perfect location, but... It is on the same strip as all the bars, pubs and nightclubs. Tonight a live band is playing and I swear people in Australia can hear it- it is so loud! So other than the fact that tonight we will get zero sleep, our first day in …

    Before we set off on our trip back in June, Junior and I had struck fear into our family by alluding to the fact that we’d like to do a sky dive when we got to New Zealand. It prompted the usual response of “what the hell would you want to do that for?” but we were undeterred. All these months later, the time had come for us to …

    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 …
