Well i am in auckland now. its 08:55 in the morning and i think i have shaken jet lag off already due to not really sleeping in 2 days then having one massive sleep when i arrived at my friends house!
The connecting flight to auckland was pretty funny. stopped off in LA airport and went to get a beer as i had a few hours to kill. I met 2 canadian girls, a middle aged man from michigan and a girl from Hull. We all began chatting and this american chap got us all drinking margarita's. Sinking about 5 of these on top of the little sleep I had plus the 6 budweisers I already sank, this got me quite pissed!! When it came for us to all go our seperate ways we were all pretty pissed and i think a group hug may have happened!!!
I went to have a piss before i queued to get on the plane and as i was walking to the toilet i heard my name being called. i turned around to see this guy i had grown up with who lived 3 streets away from me, waving at me!! He was with his wife and little son. I couldnt believe it, seeing him in LA!! Beig half pissed I made a lot more of the meeting than was neccessary, even screaming 'its a miracle' at one point i believe!!!
Aukland in extremely warm at the moment. Spent all day on the beach at meranghi bay yesterday and got very sunburnt. I had to go for a meal last night as my best mate (who i am staying with) has a friend who turned 30. This guy is a male model and a personal trainer. All the people who were at the meal looked like something from a freemans catalogue shoot.....and there was me with my lobster red sunburn and jet lagged, tired face!!!!
Its all good though!! Going to check out the flights and coach prices to queenstown and i am away!!!!
