i’ve been doing a tour of the north island for a couple days now and i have to say that New Zealand is absolutely stunning, incredibly beautiful and i wish that i could stay here longer. cathedral grove, the coromendel, raglan, just gorgeous. lucky for me I’ll be taking back with me as a souvenir a lot of salt water that i swallowed and snorted yesterday as i learned to surf on the beach featured in the cult movie endless summer. surfing was loads of fun! but my entire body hurts now!
tomorrow i go caving and check out glow worms, head to a Maori dinner and performance. the next day involves lots of mud and the day after a volcano walk. then, it’s back to Auckland… time flies! it’s so sad.
