My room is cold. The type of cold that requires me to wear a jacket to bed. Because I have to.
I guess that explains my first day on this 10 day trek down the South Island. It’s cold. It’s rainy. And not what I expected.
If anyone asked me what I saw in Kaikoura I don’t really have an answer for you. I know the beach can be seen out my window – if you squinted past the sheets of rain. I know there’s a small stretch of town. And I know it has the most diverse sea life in the country.
But I didn’t get to see it.
Instead I watched the 40 Year Old Virgin and Friends With Benefits.
Almost like home on a rainy day.
But I guess it wasn’t so bad.
I mean strangers have turned into not so strangers in less than 24 hours.
Denmark, Holland, Canada, USA, and Germany played cards together.
It’s a small world.
It’s a start.
(On a side note: I met a girl on the KiwiExperience who’s best friend is a girl in my journalism program. Six degrees of separation followed me down south. And if you know how that always happens to me…I can’t help it. I laughed.
It really is a small world after all.)
