From The Other Side Of The World!

Hello! I arrived safe in Auckland last week. I have been here for A week so far and am having an amazing time! I've wandered round the city, walked up to the museum and winter gardens, been to the art gallery, taken the ferry to Devonport, been up One Tree HIll, swam in the sea and sat in various parks. Yes its awesome! Though I did feel super dizzy from the plane ride for a few days, and had trouble standing up straight and not falling over. Not sure if this is normal for a long flight, but it's not fun. Oh, and I had 10 hours in Shanghai on the way over which was an incredible experience, I'll share photos of that soon!
I have hopefully found some work grape picking for a while but there is a storm forecast for tonight, and the grapes may not be ready, so we shall have to see what happens. It has been so sunny most days though and I have even been swimming a couple of times!
I am just typing this on my phone at the bus stop as it is the only place with free WiFi at the moment, but I will try and put more posts together to put up soon! I tried to attach a photo I took at Auckland domain with my phone so we shall see how that works out!
For now I'm just trying to let myself relax a little before I figure out what to do next/start work!

    1. Haha, it kind of is, though very hard work, crouched down all day, and carrying big bins of grapes!
