OZ/NZ

rain

Well, these past few weeks have been mental to say the least. After the Whitsundays we went to Magnetic Island, which was a very picturesque island, albeit expensive, but in general was pretty good. Met up with our german buddy Timo, then made our way to Cairns where we bumped into the girls and harry again! Basically chilled out all week. NZ has been pretty good so far, started off in Auckland and watched the new harry potter in 3D at the IMAX, which was too epic. Visited cathedral cove, then made our way to Waitomo where we did the Black Abyss black water rafting, which was so intense, but so worth it! Abseiling, zipwires, rafting, all deep underground, so awesome. Had a look around rotorua, the town that smells of eggs and has steamy pools all over the place! In all truthfulness, it was a really nice town, shall be going back there on the 25th! The luge there was intense, taking a cable car up to the top fo the hill then racing down on these ridiculously basic plastic go kart things, must've reached about 40 mph at some points. Currently we're in Taupo, which is alright, but would've been much much better if the Tongariro crossing tours hadn't been cancelled! Also the weather is really bad for skydiving so missed out on the opportunity to do that aswell. Bad times eh. Fortunately this presents the opporunity to get some writing done! Oh and I almost forgot, somehow, that I went to Hobbiton! Probably the highlight of NZ actually! I had to sign a non-disclosure form as they're doing work there for The Hobbit, so I can't really say much about it or put any photos up, but suffice it to say there was plenty to see!
