new zealand here i come! after a devastating flight from saturday 20 jan to monday 22 jan (bloody hell, my weekend is gone!) next to a fat, snoring & stinking guy in the middle seat (me having the window seat) i was quite exhausted arriving at 6 in the morning in auckland... at least the 747 of qantas had a nice on board entertainment system! since sleep was not an option i enjoyed borat, pirates of the caribbean 2, miami vice, the illusionist and snoop! a movie with... scarlett!

checking in the yha i felt like in a hotel... everything clean, organized, spacious and full with older people :) but it was great to relax after the long flight... so i thought, but "unfortunately" i met the lovely us girl michelle and we spent the day walking (!) around auckland in search for the beaches... we found heaps of nice things, but beaches where nowhere to be seen! auckland is kind unimpressive anyway... looks like any random european city

so anyway... im currently deciding how long i should stay in nz... its tempting to append another week or so, but its so bloody expensive here

What's the weather's like in NZ now? I'm planning to go away for 2 wks in mid Feb. NZ is my first plan.
Good luck mate!
