Location: New Zealand

MapI've seen the round rocks!

Once I'd ditched the camper, and boy did that feel good, I checked into a hostel. There I got chatting to two Irish lads Ciaran and Andrew, I told them I was off snowboarding the next day and they decided to come with. Since then they have been my new road partners, well more I have become theirs since they have the car. The day after boarding we headed down to Dunedin, which was colonizes by the Scots, Dunedin is actually Celtic for Edinburgh. From Dunedin we did a day trip up to see the Moraki rocks (aka the amazing round rocks). The boys were as overwhelmed as I was to see these 'almost unique' geological features. No, they were quite cool I suppose, may have been a better day if we had got to see some seals or penguins, but the are a was sectioned of for shooting?

Now we are back in Queenstown, and we did have just done the luge. Which is like a race track at the top of a mountain. Its pretty cool as you have to take a gondola up to the top, and the views are magnificent. I think its fair to say that I am warming to Queenstown, but its not Wanaka, which I think we are heading back to tomorrow. Adious!
