New Zealand, Dec. 2004

Let's start this off with the view at at bungee ey?
the green mile.
it's just cruel that they don't permit alcohol at a bungee jump
height
KLIA - bizzarely, i will now start from the beginning
Frazzled, greeted by the automobile equivalent of cruella's coat
tower
seriously creepy santa display. notice the itchy finger.
indeed
not a terribly exciting first day
i love pissing my brother off. gives me the cutest expressions
the beginning of a LOT of landscape shots.
road
wrong moment
 
leather
caw
 
i'm sorry, but they were REALLY GOOD CHIPS
 
cowboy
'I did it all for the Nookie'
wheel
beachgoers robbed of their food by insistent seagulls
brother on the right is.. not helping.
flash
mineminemine
fish. they want to eat me.
we need a singing nun in our party
don't you feel a certain sound of music song coming on?
the wharf at bay of islands.
farmers like playing a little leapfrog.
the 'romantic town of russell' is a nice way of saying backwater
yea i know. and that's not even the right colour on camera.
 
 
this would go really well with the 'miami vice' theme song
chug
 
 
spot the pregnant lady.
we travel to see... a hole in a rock. twas fun though.
 
**note : That's not snow.
hee.
cuddly
sulfur
melting
more scarily steaming rock
ignore the sign
green tongue not related to sheepshit
a swan, who proceeds to..
...drown itself in shame.
arch
scrumptious
run, sheep, run.
anyway, back to bungee. a guy tests out the rope....
the jump.
the bounce.
the better picture
waikoto river. again, it is much much more blue-green off-camera
rage
 
thermal generators. perks of living on active volcanoes.
the view across
in some zooish conservation area.
of course, instruments of torture immediately come to mind
and right next to it, a poor little deer.
quack. its amusing to see flying animals inside fences.
a duck gets territorial. and noisy.
sweet
a goat, a pig, a ram. not exactly frolicking.
if i may indulge, i love this shot.
wood
ded.
but you're coming with me.
vertigo
wtf is this monstrosity?
swirl
chubb.
taking it in. that, by the way, is the touristy TOUR GUIDE.
bowl
nipple and willie warmers. and alarmingly, nailclippers too.
a longing glance upwards
prerequisite herd of cows picture
kiwette joins our overcooked fish
and then leaves unceremoniously.
no, i don't know what this means either
blue red
fish!
flex
wait
whoa
grabbing by the gills. i feel sorry for the trout.
execution : 'thock' and its over for mr. trout.
the dead trophy
i don't normally like eating food i see alive. but hey.
meanwhile...
but in the end. with fresh wasabe sauce.
 
oh come on, we had to do it.
tilt.
greedy malaysian children crowd the free honey tasting booth
bees sadly look on
glee
well...it IS a wall.
while eating ice creams, we decided to amuse ourselves.
 
this tree gives me a strange feeling of comfort. like pooh.
accomodation at lake taupo
 
busy. it was kind of sad exploring a nz safeway :/
they silently guard
californian redwoods
they're pretty damned big.
x. we didn't want to lose the trail.
glomp
this way
 
density
dash!
maorified
more bewildered dashing
cameras do not do new zealand justice.

anyway, we had a shit tour guide who was more interested in taking pictures and being touristy than.. well, guiding. he kept talking about the south island, when we were touring the NORTH island. he is also, really not funny. think about the guy from high school who didn't know any jokes not involving porn. yea. really. and wouldn't shut up. now, think 46.
that's how annoying he was.

we only started to have fun we mutinied in the second last day or something, armed ourselves with brochures and took over the tour ourselves with the bus driver.

anyway, travellers, i suggest you skip the tours (unless maybe if you're with excellent or some other company that specialises in nz) and go caravaning for a couple of months instead. MUCH more fun that way. and less chinese food with overcooked fish.
