New Zealand

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

Once again we have fallen way behind on our blog. We got here to New Zealand a week ago and have been going non-stop since then. We have less than 3 weeks left in our travels and were trying to fit every minute that we can into seeing this incredible country. We have been spending everyday either hiking to some incredible areas or mountain biking, lets just say this place fits Christy and I rather well. We have also been hit with much higher prices compared to S.E. Asia so we are adapting to that as well.I rented a little car and got a cooler so we can cook our own food at the hostels we stay at. Yep, back to hostels and sleeping in dorm beds.  No more nice dinners for 10 bucks and private bungalows on the beach. Now its peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and frozen pizza. The locals tell us it isnt there prices that have gone up, but our dollar has taken a huge beating here just like everywhere else. Oh well, thats life. We will update the blog with some pics and some good stories once we get a chance. The clock is ticking and we need to enjoy our couple weeks of freedom before we head home and face that thing that people call “THE REAL WORLD”
