2.2.10 Queenstown

What can be said about Queenstown other than its fucking awesome! Everwhere should be like queenstown. Its very small but it is just a party town, no one goes out till 11pm, by that time your just a bit tipsy. The bonsers are a bit of a problem at world bar as they keep telling men they are 2 drunk and to go, strange how they never did it to the lady's.
I really don't know what to say about the place. I met some awesome people, as always i only seem to be frineds with girls, lol. The chillie oz girls and the isrialy's you know who you are if your reading this, awesome times. Also did a bungy in Queenstown!!!
Had to take diarrera pills before doing it as i keeped having to go to the loo. The video is on you tube just go to magicrugmaker on youtube and you'll find it.
I know i'v not really said much about the place but thats because sometihngs are best keeped to yourself.....
Back to christchurch

2.2.10 still trying to catch up here

Still trying to catch up up to this day so bear with me while i try to rememebr what i'v done, and try to put it down in a not so boring way, good luck to me. Right coffee on the go and last FM on in the ear, lets begin
We get to Christchurch and book into folly towers, Dagmar pays for my room, bonus!
We go out for dinner and end up at this turkish kabbab place Dagmar found in thelonley planet. the chiars are a bit low and shit, i din't really like the place and a kabbab before you go out drinking, is just a little strange to me.
after this delight my father and i went to this irish bar that clamed to have the worlds biggist beer glass. Bit of a let down the glass was. This was not the size of it, as it was very big, it was just in a glass box and you couldn't drink it :-(
I woke up the next day still very drunk, i'v not drank that much in a bar for a while. On waking up a girl in the room told me she had just got a job working in a lapdance club and would i mind if she practiced on me. Well i could let the poor girl down could i....
I don;t think i really have to go into to much detail but she paid for a room to practice in, where we spent the next 3 hours watching lap dancing on youtube lol.
The next day we just hang around, still a bit drunk form the 3 bottles of wine drank the night before...
Off to queenstown i go.....

1.2.10 Been a while

In true Richard form i'v missed a great big bite out of this blog, but would you want it anyothere way? The reason for this is simple, i only really write in my blog when i'm board or having a shit time. After leaving Nelson i have not, i'v been having a fucking amazzing time. Meeting really great people, doing some things i didn't think i could do and of course spending my credit cards till they will not give no more, lol.
So this will have to be quick as i'm going Whale watching in a bit and i'm tired after getting in at 3am last night.
Aftre leaving Nelson we went off to munichen.; we being My dad and dagmar who i have blagged a lift with for a few days, sweat as bro.
In this tinny town we went rafting which was cool. In the evening not alot as there are only 800 people living there and the bar closing really early. I didn't mind to much as i had my own room!! OWN BED!!! To say i slept well would be a understatment.
After leaving there we went to graymouth. (went to see sea lions on rocks on the way, can't remember where) Graymouth is how it sounds, lol. THe hostel was intresting as the owner had a big hard on for Africa and all the deco was like when rich people bring back stuff from there. From here we did a day trip to FOx glacier for a walk! The walk was fucking cool, cool being the word as was a bit cold on the ice. Also really funnny was that we popped into a place on the way for a cup of tea, and eneded up on a Helicopter flying over franze josif and tassam glacier, bonus!!!
A good day was had by all. In fact i still have the spikes i had on my shoes form the walk. Well it cost so much i wanted somthing, couldn't take ice now could I, lol
Next day drove to christchurch over Arthers pass. Dave and dagmar did a walk while i sat in the car reading a book, was a good book, so bettre than walking i think.
Oh dear ran out of time, will have to finish this later. Still to come. Lap dancers, bungy jumps and erm well you'll have to see

10.1.10 In Nelson

I'v left Blemhiam to go to Nelson, where i'm going to get a lift around some of the island with the rants who have come over.
The hole work thing did not go well. Dodgy contractors who will do anything not to pay more than the minimum.
Sad to leave Blemhiem as made some good freinds in the hostel. Really cool people. I was the only English person. Apart from Jenny who was Welsh i was the only native Englaish person there.
Ended my time there by getting really drunk at the hostel party and going out into doen with the peeps and making a dick out my self dancing, dad dancing of course, lol.
Ended on a real low when i got a ramdon head but by one of the locals walking back. This has done nothing to raise what i thing of the Kiwi's, lol. I alwasy thought it would be a maroi who would attack me, not a skinny white fuck, lol. Only thing i'v got from a maurie is free booze and a turkey cooked for me at 2 in the moring, lol.

26.12.09 Picton

26.12.9Boxing day- Picton

So I must have past out last night, as I awoke fully dressed in my bunk. Drank way to much wine and I wasted $20 buying x-mas lunch, of which I left most of it to try and chat up the chef's girl friend. LOL. Not the most clever thing to do it the world, but she was hot and Asian, from Malaysia I think. I don't remember to much about it really, but what I do remember is using the little spinning thing I got in my Christmas cracker as a in.
Anyhow the ferry journey was hell as all I wanted to do was sleep but I couldn't as the seat I had found was not the comfy, but I didn't want to change in case I lost it. Landed in Picton and the is lovely, a nice small town quiet with fuck all going on. A lot nice than Wellington, not that I really explored Wellington at death, mainly as it was really fucking windy, and cos of the lack of sleep I had no motivation. The villa is very nice, and seems homely. Shame that the WI-fi is 8 dollars an hour, thing I'm going tohave to wounder around and try and get some cheaper if not free WWIfi somewhere, I do not think iI'llfind free but maybe zambo. Even globel gossip is cheaper than here, at least for $15 you can have 24 hours none stop, not just 2 hours, with limited megabytes of download. Oh well I guess we will see what goes down the next few days.
The ATM told me I only have $600 dollars left, so a job in Picton or Blenheim, is really needed, lol. Will have to walk around 2moz, but I don't think i'll find anything before the new year. I'm going to stop writing as I'm really tired, going to try and find the TV room and loath.

24.11.09 christmas eve

Christmas eve 24.11.2009

So. Its Christmas eve in Wellington, and I'm still here. Its been touch and go at times. Not so much just weather I'd just leave Wellington, more if I'd even stay in NZ. A couple of days ago, I looked at a cheap flight, looked at my bank account and there was just anuff to cover it. I had the option of playing it safe and going back to England or taking a risk and getting into lots of dept and staying. I really really almost went home. Mainly as I was so lonely I just couldn't take it anymore. Than a funny thing happened. I was sat near the bar having a beer( should not have been drinking it really but it was happy hour and I didn't just a little one). This poor little Asian girl was having problems opening the door to get out onto the baloney to smoke. The door is a right pain in the bum and the strong winds do not help the matter. I got up and helped her out, by opening the door. I sat back down and carried on with my drink. After 5 mins I went fuck it and went out side to have a fag and say hello. Got talking to the girl. Her name was Name and she was from Japan. We hung out for the rest of that night. I was teaching her some English. Like brass Monkeys, and bloody hell. She in return, more as I was pestting her, told me a few Japaneses words. I can now say Thank you. Aly-gato. Yes I did it/correct EET, yes- hi. Erm shit I can't think of the rest. Oh yes. Ohey like the Thai's is oh-no. And theirs the hello and goodbye that everyone knows if they ever watched teen aged mutant ninger turtles. I'll leave that for you to work out, haha
OK I'll tell you but again the spelling is very bad. Con-nich-e-wa meaning hello, but very formal. Si-an-arra for goodby. I also learned some food. This brown noodle stuff that's called sober, lol, very famous over there so I'm told, and something else I can't remember at the mo, lol. But it meant egg on rice, dam my brain turning to shit.
Yeah so after having some human contact( not like that to all the dirty basterds out there) I decided that maybe there was something to stay around for, so booked on the next ferry out to picton.
When I get to picton it could be a problem. As I may not have anywhere to stay. I want to go to Blenheim to find work, but the same problem is there too. I can only find out if there is room 24 hours before hand. Meaning I have to get into picton, than call Blenheim and see if there is room, than jump on the bus, lol. All sounds a big pain in the bum to me, but hay there you go.
Today I'm going to be getting to talk to someone else for at least 10 minutes. Laura a Dutch girl who I met in roatour and did the crossing with. That mount doom and all that. Is going to be in Wellington for Christmas. She is spending it with her family, lucky girl, but at least I get to have a quick coffee when she gets into town. Yay, I almost have a friend. LOL
After that I have no idea what the fuck I'm going to do, I'm thinking I'll try and get into a shop and get a cheap DVD for x-mas and a jumper. I also need some socks. The ones I have made it across lots of countries, than when I get to one where I need them, they disappear, strange no?
I wonder how long I'm going to make it out here, I think I'm going to try and do a couple of months on the farms picking if I can. Hope that's should give me anouth money to get to the places around the south I want to get to. Than maybe after 3-4 months max I think I would be time to go home, it would have been a year away. Some people I talk to have this romantic view of being a travaller going around and doing new things and you can always just move on cos your a traveler. My view is that a loud of shit, I respect that they have a view, but I still think its poo. Maybe cos I have so many things back home that I love and pull me in. making it very hard to leave, I don't know, but. I always like to think I'm a southerner from England that's where I'd like to call home. DO what makes you happy. People mock folk who have been living in Wantage there hole life and never get away, just get married and and kids. Ah I was one of the ones mocking, but thatch stupid. Who are we to say thatch a bad thing. As long as on your death bed, your finale breath living your mouth and you think to yourself, I have regrets, its been a good life, that's all that matters.
Sorry this is turning into a bit of a rant, but I'm sat in the laundry room waiting for my cloths to try in the dryer. There is no internet up here as its the 6 floor. IT was ether this, read or play solitaire. Some people do read this sometimes so I thought I write some shit.
