Day 2 in New Zealand was filled with mountains, waterfalls, cuppas, and a rainbow. On my second day in NZ, I went on the Milford Sound Tour via the Kiwi Experience coach. The ride to our boat tour was amazing in itself, although winding through the mountains made me wish I hadn’t had hot chips (fries) before the ride. Even though the boat ride was quite chilly, I had a cuppa (cup of tea) to warm me up as we sailed the brilliant blue waters past seals and under waterfalls. There are a couple of pictures from the mirror lakes as well. They should be easy to pick out since they make a near perfect reflection of the mountains and sky. I was very happy with the sights and events of this day, including a rainbow that decided to show up as we set sail. It was a truly magical day.
I spent my mid-session break (spring break) in New Zealand! Here are a few pictures from Day 1. I arrived in Christchurch, NZ around slept in the airport (not the highlight of my trip). At 7:30 I took a bus from Christchurch to Queenstown and arrived around 4:00. The photos are from the bus ride to Queenstown. I’ll be posting more photos and stories from my adventure soon. Don’t worry, it gets more exciting than this.
I went to the Farm Music Festival in Shellharbour with a group of friends yesterday/today. It was a charity event that featured some local bands and some good ol’ local people. The change in atmosphere from uni to the farm was very nice and felt a bit like home. I didn’t take many photos, but I did manage to snap a shot of a friendly chicken.
My roommates and I caught this little fella digging through the trash. I’m a little more hesitant to feed/pet the possums after finding out where they spend their leisure time.
Max and I went to the Lumineers Thursday night at the Enmore Theatre in Newtown (basically Sydney). The Lumineers were great as I expected. The band that opened for them, The Falls, were really good too. Max and I got to meet them in between sets and they told us some cool places to check out while we’re in Australia. It was good to get out of Wollongong for a bit and enjoy the city. Overall it was an entertaining evening.
Max and I at our good mate’s birthday party. He was a magician and I was his assistant.
It was a lovely day at the beach.
