New Zealand!

Today i’m in Queenstown, New Zealand. I like this town is has a nice feeling about it in amongst the mountains and at the edge of the lake.
Getting to queenstown was a little tiring in the bus without any decent stops, the distances here are totally different to Holland its like going from Amsterdam to Paris in a 4 hour trip to get from Dunedin to Queenstown.
At least the weather over here is nice, its 24 degrees and cloudy today, tomorrow it’s going to be 21 degrees. I am already rather tanned from it all smile Some people here say i have a mixed accent dutch and kiwi mixed together, I wonder why…

For tomorrow we’re going to book a gold panning tour which is something i’ve done before when I was young but i would still like to have some fun with bridget. I kinda want to do get myself involved in something active and move around a little but i still need to figure out what so we’ll see if that’ll come around. I try to get some pictures online in the near future.

Well for now i’ll leave it there. Maybe i’ll expand this entry when i have more time.

[Update]

It turned out we needed our own transport to get to the gold panning so instead we decided to go out swimming. There we had a great time, it was a cool swimming pool and there was alot of space to swim (there weren’t many people there. So after we went swimming we took the bus back into Queenstown and decided to go out for dinner, We had a really awesome dinner at the Speight’s Ale House, we both ordered Filet Mignon which was really good. (Same stuff we had in San Francisco with Shahan and Camilla). After that we headed back to the hostel and had a reasonably good nights sleep.

Today (the Sunday) I decided to go up to bob’s peak with the gondola, There i took a ride on the Luge (which was awesome) after that we went to the movies “Bride wars” which is definintly a chick flick….

Happy New Year

Happy new year to all!

We just got back from Nelson on the 31st, We had a good time up there together. Did quite a few things I stood on the lookout you can see in the link (the cross in the sky) it was a really great lookout spot privatly owned about 70 mtrs above sea level.
We celebrated New Years Eve in Balcairn, Canterbury with margot and richard. We stood up on the roof together and watch the fireworks in christchurch.
By the way, Google maps & Street view is spooky… Can look up everything without going raspberry

Anyway i’ve got to do some tying so take care for now smile
