Posting from New Zealand
Whats going on guys and gals??
25 hours of airplane travel and jet lag mix rather nicely!

I won't be able to post up any pics due to no software but I'm having an amazing time here. I sat in a SKYLINE the first day at the airport, I was checking it out and the owner (a chick) came over and we started chatting about her car, she does drifting competitions in it and everything.
I started off in the south island after that doing some hiking, bungy jumping, fly by wire and driving on these twisty moutain roads has all been awesome!!

I'll be going to the North Island in 2 days for surfing and doing the tourist thing with the Maori tribal stuff. I can't wait till I get to the beach WOOOOO!!!

haven't made it to the North Island just yet. I met up with a Brit who convinced me to go to a Glacier. So I went climbing on a Glacier today!! Franz Joeseph to be precise. Pretty cool, nice and peaceful yet scary too, those 150 foot crevases (sp?) would suck to fall into.

One thing that is pissing me off in this place is the prices of everything, RECOCKULOUSLY EXPENSIVE!!!!

Tal. back on the 18th i think

looking faward to seeing pics. Every summer when i visit the family in Greece kids my age say wow your car is 2000cc's, i cant help but laugh here you dont have a big powerplant unless you packing 5.0 or more, but in Greece where there are 800cc cars, yea thats right .8 liter cars its different. lol however there are manny tiny cars with 1.6's in then that make 160 na horsepower, lots of fun and plenty of fun roads, probaly why untill a few years ago driving accidents were the leading cause of death in the entire country.
