Heaven on a stick

Day 3: After a quick breakfast we check out of our hotel and head out to the airport to pick up Louise & Peter.  They have been in NZ for a week or so already, travelling around the South Island in a camper van. Today they drop their van off and we pick them up for the 3 hour drive up to the Bay of Islands and the location of our house swap.  Only problem is we don't have a map or GPS and their pick up location is a couple of streets over from the main drag out ...

Down on The Farm

In New Zealand, working on a farm in return for your food and board is especially popular with backpackers. While Ian and I were not quite ready to hang up our sandals for wellies and get down and dirty with the pigs, we thought it would be fun to stay for a few days in a real working dairy farm.

The first thing that hit me was just how out in the middle of nowhere it was. If you didn't have a car, there was no way you could get around out there. No nipping out to ...

Devon joined us for dinner and the following night joined us for our date night!! We had ...

We also jumped off a rock aswell which was soo small compared to the jumps we do ...

... We have a nice open plan house though so it worked well. There was beer pong, flip cup, and lots of laughter. One of my friends even showed up in costume, a head dress and everything.


And today is a lazy sunday. Editing my blog, cleaning the house, doing laundry and having a beer in the hammock.




Thats the story of my life these days...just living my dream




Hope you are all doing well! xx
