First of all, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you!!
As I wrote in my last journal, I intended to stay in Picton for a month to work in a backpackers. Well, it didn't work out quite well and I decided to go back to Nelson the same day I arrived in Picton..... I was in a real mess and didn't know what I wanted at all. At some stages, I just wanted to quit travelling and go back home.
But I talked to a lot of other backpackers and they all assured me that this is completly normal and they experienced the same problems. However, I decided not to leave Nelson until I exactly knew what I'm going to do with myself and my further travels. I ended up staying for just over 2 weeks and spent Christmas there as well!!
Christmas as a backpackers and in a sunny warm place like Nelson felt strange.
Yesterday, I took the ferry to Wellington. Wellington is a really nice city with lots of nice buildings and art sculptures all over the place.
Today, I met Reto, the Swiss guy I met in Nelson and we had a coffee at Starbucks. In the afternoon, I went to the Te Papa Museum which was quite interesting.
Tomorrow, I'm travelling to Turangi and hope to be able to do the Tongario Crossing the next day.
