Christchurch to Dunedin

Warning: Some of the pictures in the following post could be disturbing for some people!
We finally left Christchurch behind!!!
On Barbara's Birthday we did a SKYDIVE together! Really crazy to jump out of a plain.

On the way down to Dunedin we saw some seals, shags, the first penguin and this cool old boat shed.

Barbara likes hugging hedges now!?!

These round boulders on a beach half way between Christchurch and Dunedin look like they are from outer space

Seaweed impressions in still...

The last few days he have been staying at Otago Peninsular. Really nice but most the time the weather is pretty crappy.

A day on a sheep padic:

You might come across a nice little sheep tail like this and wounder why they loose them.

The little baby sheep still have them.

The farmers put very strong rubber bands around them

so all the circulation gets cut off and they fall off. The farmers do that so that the sheep don't get their own shit all over the tail.

You will probably also find a lot of bones.

And maybe even a dead sheep.

One of the sheep skulls is now on the front of our van and hopefully will keep away all evil.

We had some bad luck with the van before. The wind was so strong that it blew the driver's door out and now its buggered up and doesn't open any more. I hope I'll be able to fix it up back in Auckland with Sanchio. Also the van tends to over heat when we go up steep hills. We just had it in the garage but after half a day of working on it they still didn't find the problem. They wanted us to come back on Monday but we think we will just leave. It's only a problem when going uphill, on the flat its totally fine and I just don't want to spend any more money on cars.

Christchurch is comming to an end

It's about time to leave the city. Feel like a haven't traveled for so long.
Unfortunately quite a lot shit happened in the last few days/weeks.
But one good think is that I finished my dive instructor exam and are now a PADI SCUCA INSTRUCTOR!!!!
Had had some shit luck with my car, first it broke down and it cost me $2000 to get it fixed and then some f***er tried to brake into it. Luckily the car is still there but the lock is a bit buggered now.
I went to manpower to get a job and they put me to Tyco, a big electronic manufacturing company. I started off doing terminating, basically putting little plugs onto cables. Bloody boring and after talking to manpower for like 10 times they put me onto something else. Now I'm doing inwards good processing - taking parcels from all the couriers opening them, entering the goods into the computer and putting them away in the shelfs. Lots better!
So in about a week I'll be back on the road!!!!
