The world according to Kiwis and Aussies (written by a Pom!) This is about my life in the last 12 months, travelling and seeing the world- or more specifically seeing a small area of South Island NZ ( I'll tell you all about the adventures I've already had cos I've just about finished in NZ now!)and the locals that inhibit this beautiful part of the world...(Don't worry guys I'm talking about the dairy cows as a rule!)

I knew it would be an interesting experience taking an overnight train and I was right. I wasn't expecting a particularly comfortable or enjoyable night, and as it turned out I didn't have one! It would have been okay if I wasn't sat behind someone who was really quite revolting. Farting continually, snoring ridiculously loudly and I'm assuming it was his feet I could smell! That and the sound of the train literally grating along the side of the track very very loudly outside my window every other minute, especially when I was about to drop off, was most disconcerting and definately not conducive to a good nights sleep. Consequently I had about an hour of sleep all together and amused myself the rest of the time thinking about nothing in particular and listening to my cd player, one minor problem, I packed my cds in my case which I checked into the luggage carriage, so its safe to say I know every single word of all the Brooke Fraser album. Its a good album, but I was craving something slightly different by the time I got to Melbourne, so Kenny Rodgers has been playing ever since!!!
