New Zealand - Land of the Amazing Kiwis

New Zealand is awesome. But you already knew that I'm sure. I'm just confirming what you've already heard.

No matter where you are in the country, you're a short drive to the beach, a volcano, bungee jumping, skydiving, trekking, and some of the coolest people on the planet.

I think more than anything, William and I have fell in love with the people here. Every Kiwi (New Zealander) that we have met is so incredibly cool.

We just recently left Craig, Fraser and Sara. Sara is from Belgium and Craig and Fraser are from New Zealand. We've been hanging out with them for the past week or so and have had some of the best times on the trip so far.

We went to the beach (a few times), we saw bands playing at bars in Auckland, we danced at Craig's flat with cool strobe and party lights, we saw waterfalls... we just had an amazing time with them.

But now William and I have to go explore other places in New Zealand.

It's hard to move to a new place about every 4 days because you are always meeting new people and never get to develop the friendships that you make.

It's tiring not being able to hang out with the same group of friends for more than a week. When we get to Australia, out plan is to stay in one really cool place for a little while... at least longer than a week.

And yes, William is still alive. I'm trying to get him to update his blog or some photos... hopefully he will soon.

Tomorrow (Wednesday for us) William and I will do something we've never done before. It will be dangerous. It will be amazing. It will be on a video podcast really soon. ;)
