    Count me out of the bungee jumping and sky diving! I fancy the white water rafting tho!

    The hostel I am staying in Auckland is only 200m down the road from the mercure. Haven’t got round to looking into where everything is in Christchurch yet, will get back to you on that one!

    I’m game for all 3! At least that’s what I say now. I’m pretty sure I won’t sound as confident though when I’m about to bungee or sky dive! But hey, New Zealand’s the place to do it all right? so I’m determined not to leave New Zealand without having given it all a try!

    Anyone know if we’ll have wi-fi access for the most part of our trip? I’m wondering if I should get a NZ pre paid sim card with a data plan so that I retrieve my emails and stuff. Data roaming charges in NZ on a Singapore plan are way expensive.

    most hotels have wi-fi access… or they did on my last contiki. now as to sky diving and bungee jumping, to me there is something not quite right about jumping out of a plane or off of a bridge. though i’m really keen for the white water rafting and will be doing the black water rafting too

    thats the spririt cheryl !!! has anyone decided to use a travel card to keep money on or just using your normal card??

  • 20 Sep 2011 Alex.Clark said

    Alex.Clark

    i’ll probably be using a travel card, i used one on my last one, made everything a lot easier. haven’t organised it yet, just waiting for my girlfriends paperwork to come in and we’ll do it all at once

  • 20 Sep 2011 kieran.curtis said

    kieran.curtis

    is your girlfriend going on the trip with you??

  • 20 Sep 2011 Alex.Clark said

    Alex.Clark

    yeh she is, that was the whole reason i had to change hotels, was originally in a single room, then when we booked her we couldnt find a double room

  • 20 Sep 2011 kieran.curtis said

    kieran.curtis

    ohk fair enough you guys looking foward to it??

  • 20 Sep 2011 Alex.Clark said

    Alex.Clark

    Oh yeh very keen, ready to party up a storm

  • 20 Sep 2011 kieran.curtis said

    kieran.curtis

    good we think alike, how about everyone else??

  • 20 Sep 2011 Pauline85 said

    Pauline85

    Partying up a storm sounds like defaintly the right idea. And Im using a commonwealth bank travel card thats what I put all my spending money on during the last six months. Hey cheryl Im the same as you not sure once I get up on the bridge to do the bungee jump will i be able to do it but I will just have to wait and see. lol
