all this leaving is going on my nerves!!

I'm at the airport in Auckland at the moment. Flew in from Christchurch at three, and my flight to Tonga leaves at ten, so it's quite a wait.. But I'm lucky to have found free internet here to keep me occupied!
The south island was just as good as the north, in a completely different way! It looks a lot like the west coast back home.
I've been really boring and not done a lot of activities, but after getting a cold I haven't been feeling to well. Hopefully I'll be alright, cause I forgot to get vacsinated.. Hmm.. Not very bright of me, but ah well. Hopefully I'll live, hehe!
We had a different driver in the south, and funnily enough, we knew heaps of the same people from Mission Beach, he had been a river guide while I lived there. How strange!
And we weren't three from the north island, there were two sweet Swedish girls travelling south as well. And we've had so much fun together.
We had a crossdressing party in Barrytown, where I got to dress up as a bus driver. We sat fire on our sambuca shots and the Irsih lad was dancing on the bar wearing only pink bathers! The next morning, Sheena and I dragged ourself out of bed to go bonecarving. I've made a beautiful wave that Rik was really jealous of, him not being able to get out of bed and all, hehe.
After that we had some good days in the wilderness before making it to adrenaline capital of the world, Queenstown. Lots to do and it's all quite expensive. Next time I'll travel with a mate and I'll do it all!!! Not enough time this around.
So now my NZ adventures are over, and it's very, very sad. If you have never travelled like this you have no idea how hard it is to constantly meet people you really hit it off with for so to leave them. I guess I just have to come back and do it all again..
Next adventure; Tonga. Can't wait to chill out on a pacific beach....
See ya soon!
