    Default 3 Weeks in!

    Hey everyone.

    Sorry ive not been about much but things have been hectic so far as you can imagine!

    Well what can I say, so far all has been good apart from being ill, the snow and the earthquake that woke me up!

    Im on a 23 month working holiday visa, currently unemployed and waiting to change over my licence from UK-NZ, which as first thought isnt as easy as originally told. Was told before I came out that it would be a straight swap for a NZ class 4. Went in to change it over only to get told I need a medical & theory test, which is slightly annoying but onwards and upwards and all that.

    Ive had a job interview already, got the job but cos of the licence problems ive since lost it as the insurance only covers the truck for NZ licence holders, which i guess is fair enough.

    I underestimated the flight length massively! I thought it wouldnt be too bad, had my laptop/ipad with me on the flight so had plenty of stuff to be getting on with, after watching men in black 1&2, hot fuzz, yes man 2x 1hr episodes of top gear and some peep show I realised I was very bored! Landing in Auckland at 11pm though helped things along though, airport wasnt busy and got to the hotel at a decent time to go to bed.

    Sorry for rambling on a bit, just wanted to throw a few things down
