We met up with Lis at 7 and headed back to a Eamon's appartment - a friend of hers We ordered pizza and got a few beers in before heading out for new years
. We apent the night in O Hagans down at the water front with Fintans college mates, Lisa and Eamon. The countdown was pretty cool and we watched the fire works from the Sky Tower. it wa sweird knowing that we were one of the first in the world to celebrate new years and they wouldn't be counting down for another 13 hours at home. i think we stayed there till about 2 and then headed to The Fiddler which is across from the Sky Tower. We danced and partied the morninhg away until 10am. We were fucked by the time we got back. It was just me and Steve again. Fintan had gone home well earlier. Its all a blur to be honest but it was all good fun. I was talking to this guy for ages and everyone was coming up shaking his hnd. he was a huge fucker. turned out he was Trevor Leota, the Samoan intermational and London wasps hooker who scored the winning try against Munster in the Heineken Cup semi fianl in 2004. Bastard!! he was boasting like fuck about it too but he was really sound. Overall had a great nigh/morning.
We actually had a great day today but the events of the day have totally been blurred out by the events of the night. it rained really heavily in the morning so we were stuck in the hostel. I cleared up at around 2pm so we headed out, first of all down to the marina to have a look around and then to the famous Sky Tower. the Sky Tower is really cool. We're hopefully gonna do the Sky Jump on Tuesday morning which I can't wait for cos its nuts. The view from the top is amazing. auckland really is a beautiful city. When we got back down we walked about half a block and decided to do the reverse bungee jump I got to do it twice - once with a little fat chinese boy and then with the lads. It was so cool but I thought i'd get sick the second time. 5 Gs in the first 2 seconds sends you flying intio the air spinning you in all directions. Some fun!
