From Kuwait to Dubai, then off to bangkok… stopping in Sydney… then finally NEW ZEALAND! Getting here kinda sucked- but its already totally worth it! (Im watching TV w/ a remote and using Free & Fast internet!)

I threw all my stuff together to leave Tuesday night in my cute ROXY bag…. but wasn’t able to fly out! So Wednesday (My BIRTHDAY!) I hung out, did some homework and was able to plan more for my trip!

I boarded the cramped plane at 3 am in the morning on Thursday, jumped on another different plane and crashed Friday night in tent city! Friday night I started my ‘journey’ from Kuwait to Dubai, then spent 9 hours on a flight from Dubai to Bangkok, switched planes and spent 8 more hours to Sydney- then 2 hours to Christchurch, NZ! Phew.

Dubai to Bangkok

Thank God for pictures!

Flying over NZ!

NZ Mountains

After trudging through customs and getting my passport stamped (!) I decided to try to get a flight to Queenstown (So I can hurry up and start my crazy adventures!!) I booked the flight for bright and early Monday morning and got a room in the shoddiest hotel! Budget hotel (I didn’t want to spend to much mula for one night… so I guess I get what I paid for!)

So…the Hotel was empty… and there is no central heat/AC… and dorm style bedroom furniture… but there is a TV with a remote, hot showers, no sand, and fast internet! Since the army… I can pretty much see the best out of things when they are actually shitty! 🙂

I’ve got some pictures from the flights- I’ll upload them later… right now I’ve gotta get some sleep so I can get into some trouble tomorrow!
