Heheh so as i was working at TelstraClear,I made a few new friends, and good ones with Fraser, He was going away for the weekend and invited me along...I couldnt refuse....
14.05.2010 - 17.05.2010
Right so after being here so long in CHC,
It was only right to have at least nice quiet weekend away, Daaaamn i had been working so much and done nothing...It was depressing, To have been in such a beautiful country and not have experienced it,
So on Friday at work Fraser asked if i wanted to join him after work to go to Kaikora, As a spur of the moment thing sure i accepted as i was not sure how much longer i would be in New Zealand, So after work i rushed home to get my things and then off we went to Kaikora,
It was about a 3hr drive, once we got there we stayed at the Albatross Hostel if i remember correctly, It was a nice place, the 3 of us , Fraser, Me and a girl that he knew all were in the same room, the dorms were wicked, We didnt do much the first night as we arrived at 9pm , So we went to the bar to grab a snack and a couple beers,
The next day Fraser and i went to go Kayaking in the Sea, with a tour to go see some of the Seal colonys! Wow! Such a nice feeling! I felt free again in Kaikora, Back to the travel mode, I think we spent about 4 hours on the Kayak which set us back about 90$, But they were proper kitted out, 2 man Sea Kayak with Rudders,
I like captain Fraser do the steering, It was so nice to be out on the water, It was a beautiful day and the sea was calm, We Got to see so many Seals, Up so close it was a nice experience, and definatly nice to take mind off things, There were 2 Kayak groups i remember the others where a bit further ahead, and they got to see a group of Dolphins!! Soooo lucky!!!! Fraser and i tried to catch up to them but haahaha no chance! After Kayaking i took my long board out to find a few hills to try...
I remember finding one smooth hill, My trucks were really loose, I didnt think of it at the time, I went about 3/4 of the way up the hill, It was pretty steep mind you...But i didnt expect to go so fast....Hahah i never been so genuinly scared in my life! Really hahah, I remember begining to roll and trying to Carve i was thinking Uh Oh!!!!! I managed to do it with out falling so decided to go again (Bad move)...I dont know why but this time i picked up more speed, at bottom of hil was a road also and i could see a car in distant, I must have been going at least 30mph hahah, i had to ride onto a grass patch and jump for my life and roll, That left a nasty cut haha =D, But all is fun and games =D,
Kaikora really though is a beautiful place, This is what New Zealand is all about, Not Christchurch...I felt so at peace at here it was a nice change...The village was quiet, there was so many nice sights around in terms of scenary , On the sunday (the day we had to leave) We went and explored around a bit more,
I will post some pics so you can see how beautiful it is here,
Another updated done! =P
Hope all is well guys!
