New Zealand or BUST! Why go...not to escape reality, but to find it...to see hitherto unexperienced horizons of beauty...to have the courage to turn against habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living...to be wild at heart.

Camera issues

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 21 Jan 2008 | Views [359]

I was afraid of it from the start, but I think I'll have to buy a new camera for my sister.  I have done a bit of damage to the one she lent me for the trip.  Mostly cosmetic up to this point, but yesterday I got it a bit wet by accident.  I have pulled ... Read more >

In the land of Mordor

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 18 Jan 2008 | Views [757]

I had a great two days with those guys. We ended up in Tongariro State Park . That is where most of the footage for Mordor (specifically Mt. Dhoom ) was taken for the LoTRs movies. I finally found a computer that could upload my pictures, so ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 17 Jan 2008 | Views [578]

I made it to the Coromandel.  When I got to Thames (said like the river in London), I wanted to head up north to a different part of the mountains than my bus was traveling to.  I asked the bus driver, and he told me to hitch-hike.  Now, I have heard ... Read more >

Done with Waiheke

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 15 Jan 2008 | Views [349]

I left the island today.  I only stayed on that first farm for 4 days.  I just felt the desire to more on.  Waiheke also has water shortage problems in the summer, so I wanted to leave and take a shower! My first WWOOF experience is what you would expect.... Read more >

Toxic Mussels

Hello friends.  If you come to N.Zed, be careful about the shellfish .  I have felt horrible all day because of those mussels last night.  I took a hot bath to try and sweat it out.  I drank tons of juice and water to try and flush it out.  I slept ... Read more >

Singapore

SINGAPORE | Monday, 7 Jan 2008 | Views [588]

In short, Singapore is a neat enough city that I would live there.  Plane rides that take 342 hours are not neat.  Seeing old friends (and flying over a few in the Airplane) is neat. CTA eat your heart out.  Singapore's eL-train kicks your teeth in.... Read more >
