Well, it's back to Wellington for me... For a couple of days anyway.
Was strange being back in Picton - we decided to stop there overnight as had got a little bit bored of Kaikoura; not that there's anything to do in Picton but just thought it would be good going somewhere different. Anyway, we stayed at the same hostel as when we were here last time, and I even managed to get the same bed! They still had free apple crumble and ice-cream there, which was really yummy! Felt a bit of deja vu being there actually....
The next day it was time to get my car onto the ferry - the poor thing really didn't like the metal bridge thingy that I had to drive on, it was making a terrible noise! But he's still ok, thankfully, although I think he has a cold at the moment as he is sounding a little throaty.... It may be time for a new exhaust....
The ferry ride wasn't the best - I never usually get sea sick but this time I really didn't feel too good - I had to keep convincing myselft that I wasn't going to be sick. The sea was really choppy, and it was ridiculously windy up on the sun deck, so I ended up sat inside trying not to be sick..
Being back in Wellington was a little weird - especially because this time I was driving around and not walking! I even managed to get a little confused by all the one way streets, and spent about 15mins driving round trying to find somewhere to park. Great fun!
Had a beer or two to get back into things last night - I was on a detox for a bit - no chocolate or Tim Tams ( or beer or junk food for the last 10 days - well done Helen!! To celebrate that I'm gonna have the nicest pizza in New Zealand tonight (, followed by a few beers - it's student night in Wellington and the beers are only $3 - awesome!!!
