last few days...

... in New Zealand :-((

14 hour train journey between Wellington & Auckland on Tuesday accompanied by a slightly surreal running commentary from a crew that Basil Fawlty would have been proud of - it certainly aided passenger-bonding ;-)

Visited Waiheke island in Auckland harbour on Wednesday, really chilled day that got progressively drunker and badly behaved as the evening wore on - lots of fun ;-)) So yesterday was a bit of write-off... worth it though! Still, I managed to meet up with Pauline from Bloomsday in Auckland and went to see the Ray Charles movie in a lovely art-deco cinema on the north shore.

And then today, to round it all off, I went caving & blackwater rafting in Waitomo (about 2 hours south of Auckland), very wet & muddy & happy :-))
