Flag of New Zealand  , South Island,
Thursday, January 7, 2010

In the morning we caught the InterIslander ferry to the South Island and it was pretty cool. Went up to the top deck to try and fight the winds and get some pictures which was amusing because the wind was extremely intense even though the boat was not traveling very fast.

After the 3 hour journey across the ocean we got the bus going to Nelson which would be home for the next 2 nights.

The South Island is really beautiful. It reminded me alot of BC with the trees and mountains. It is very different from the rolling green hills of the North Island.

We finally got to Nelson and it is a pretty regular place. Booked into a great hostel called the Paradiso and I have spent the last 2 days relaxing, getting caught up on organization stuff and laundry etc. The hostel has been great with the pool and nice people, and I got lucky by getting a great room with a queen bed for cheap!

Anyways, time is running out on computer, gotta run!
