Kia Ora Dudes!!
So the Yorkshire girl did follow her nose and she ended up in Wanaka; New Zealand safe & sound.
Somehow survived a 36 hour flight (with someone’s smelly feet on my armrest for the first 13 hour flight.. Gross) and didn’t miss any connection flights… Manchester to Singapore…… Singapore to Sydney…. Sydney to Queenstown.
What did i learn.. long connects are best and no delays! (i’m sure everyone who also like this to!)
Which airport do you recommend? 10 hour layover in Singapore is hands down the best airport i have every been too! Plenty to do, many gardens to visit in transit terminals. I highly recommend seeing the butterfly garden or the sunflower garden and maybe getting a beer up on the roof top cactus beer garden!
I’ve been in Wanaka a week tomorrow and what a world wind week its been… full of meeting people, snowboarding, BBQs, fire pits, star gazing, chilling, beers and a few beers.
Ive done some grown up stuff.. trying to find a place to live. Until i find somewhere to live getting a NZ bank account is hard and then you can’t get a IRD number until you have a bank account.. which becomes a rolling ball game… i cant get a job until i have the 2 above!!
hey! living in a hostel isn’t so bad, everyone had different stories – people who are coming to an end of the travels and plenty of people who are just getting started like me. kind of shows that i’m doing okay to start with and just take everything as it comes. I’m learning not to worry about making noise in a hostel (Everyone does), just go with the flow and you can’t help disturbing people.
Not knowing which way to go and where ill end up.. is all part of the fun. Although this blog really sucks and i need to improve my skills.. Hopefully in time that will come and ill give advice to anyone willing to come out/ escape like this Yorkshire lass did!!
Live for the moment and enjoy it.
