These boots were made for walking After spending a year on a University exchange trip I'll be heading back home to Canada at the end of November. I'll be taking a couple detours on the way home stopping in New Zealand and then Hawaii.

Auckland Part 2

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 9 December 2005 | Views [467] | Comments [2]

Internet is much cheaper here in Auckland this entry is sooner than expected.  Last night, I decided to go to bed early around 10ish.  Around 11:30 I woke up because of a noise.  I turned over in bed just in time to see the girl on the bunk next to mine (who must have come in while I was sleeping) lean over the railing of the top bunk and begin vomiting into the middle of the room.  From the top bunk it got some pretty good splatter too. I'm so so so thankful none of it got on my stuff.  It got to within about 4-6 inches but none of it actually got onto my things from what I could tell.  So anyway, I changed rooms and that was the end of it but I thought I would share.

This morning I took the ferry to Devonport, which is a nice suburb not too far from downtown Auckland.  There are two extinct volcanos there.  I walked up once called the North head from which there are fantastic views of Downtown Auckland.  I also walked around the battlements located around the summit. I then took a nice walk around downtown and bought some strawberries and a vegetarian pie for lunch which I ate along the esplanade beside the beach.

I'll write another entry again soon.
