The next day when we woke up there was quite a lot of damage on the roads and as we listened to the radio we discovered that the strong winds last night had actually been classified as a tornado! Tom was very pleased with himself that he had driven 4 hours through a tornado, but to be honest apart from some strong winds and a spot of rain we got off pretty lightly compared to the rest of the country.
Today we finished the rest of our journey to Wellington and stayed in a campsite just outside of the city. Once we arrived we went for a wander around the town, there were more food outlets in the Shopping Centre than there are people in the whole of New Zealand and the Pound Shops were filled with the same rubbish as at home. As you can probably tell, we both woke up this morning feeling pretty worn out from our caving adventure yesterday. Tom has got two of the biggest blisters I've ever seen across his knuckles from the abseil ropes and between us we've got a nice collection of bruises and bumps. So after some lovely homemade pizzas (you can't get a cheese and tomato pizza at the supermarket, they all have bacon on them!) we head to the land of nod for a very deep sleep!
