Arrived!

Finally arrived this morning after the 9.5hr flight to Auckland and then the short hop down to Wellington (1hr), got in around 10am. The hostel i'm staying at wasn't ready so we all went out for a short walk and some lunch before we could check in. Met up with two friends from Louisiana here for the meeting and a fun get together was had. 

We're about to head out to dinner too, I'm just about keeling over, so it'll be a short, quiet one.I knew if I didn't post now I would probably not manage it later. The hostel is nice, clean, friendly (the YHA Wellington City), I have a small private double room (shared bathroom) and the two students have a twin room downstairs. Been on the Skype with Stian already and plans are afoot for our New Zealand tour - woo hoo! 

The Te Papa museum - our reception tomorrow night is in there, so i'l try and go early and explore a little. Some fish and chips and a beer......mmmmmm.........good 'ole british food......:0)

And in keeping with British fish and chip tradition, a seagull waiting for leftovers......
