    ... drove to Nelson, the roads became steadily more arterial. Parking up, we made lunch before nipping into town to the cathedral. The art deco exterior is notable for its unusual, hollow tower, which could be said to look unfinished. Perhaps the real strength of the building is inside, with its bold embellishment and magnificent, flowing, modern stained glass windows. On the way back to the car, we poked our heads into a wonderful glass blowing centre and ...

    ... always when you have the need to visit the restroom…hmmm…).

    The ferry ride took about 3 1/2 hours and it was a large ferry. The rental company we are renting our car from gave us a free ferry ride for our car. This was wonderful news, as we were planning on driving all over both islands.

A few ladies passing even stopped to check I was ok, they must have laughed once they realised it was just a wasp sting! Ohhh how embarrassing. But hey, it was really painful!

    Woke up early again today. We went skydiving! We got picked up from the hostel at 7:30 and driven to the airfield. We had our briefing and then went to get our jumpsuits, hats, goggles and then a harness. Once we got kitted up we met the guys we were going to be attached to. And also did an intro to Annabelles video. We then got into the plane and set off. The view got better and better as we climbed. We could see miles in every direction. In the distance we could see the north ...
