I made it - a world of possibility
I made it
So after many hours in transit (between the multi-time zones, I lost track, lol) I and my 2 huge bags, one almost carry-on (it was too heavy), and an actual carry on made it safe and sound to my hostel in auckland, NZ.

I had an hour to kill before going to orientation this morning (it starts at 10am it is now 9:05am). So I decided to drop a line to my folks letting them know I'm alive.

My brain doesn't want to think about doing anything before orientation as I know most of the day will be spent trying to . . .

  • get a bank account

  • get a credit card (hopefully easy since my card company has an international one or maybe a new zealand location, I'm not sure)

  • get a cell phone

  • figure out how, where, and from whom I'm going to buy a car

  • if there's time call my folks!

  • So far it's been wonderful. As I was on the bust to the hostel with all my luggage I couldn't stop smiling. I got to see the end of the sunrise since our flight arrived before the sun (however with customs etc. . . .) The flights weren't all that bad. I do think I've seen enough movies for quite some time, otherwise it went fairly well.

    I'm gonna get offa here and explore at least a tiny bit before orientation - as well as eat some of my egg salad sandwich and then try a lots of fruit baked oaty slice thing. (I hope the link works, on these computers pictures and stuff don't show up, so who knows).

    I hope all be well

    More eventually

    Are you moving to NZ or just staying there for a while?

    What are you doing there?

    I'm living here for 1 year - or almost a year. I'm here on a working holiday visa, so I can work while I'm here (to make money to travel & explore on!)

    if you want the background of how I decided to go here - check out this entry - or the links in my comment at the bottom :)


    I hope all be grand!
