We are still residing in our luxurious campervan (which needs a shower fitted so that Vicki can maintain that precious shine in her dazzling purple Timotei hair) but have found a leisure centre where it is free to swim which also implies free hot showers!
When eating that delicious golden breaded chicken patty topped with cheese, sizzling bacon, crisp lettuce and sweet juicy pineapple a.k.a. The Hawaiian BK Chicken, when in Burger King this afternoon; we felt a lovely warm tingling sensation inside. It had nothing to do with the food we were eating, but everything to do with the many lengths we swam prior to eating at BK
We haven’t really been up to much, just trying to sort out visas and work permits so that we can start work and earn some dollars! We went to the Coromandel ( http://www.thecoromandel.com/media.html ) on the weekend, very spectacular indeed! When the batteries have charged up we will upload the pics on the blog and FB.
My job is based in Devonport, a lovely little peninsula in Auckland. Vicki loves the place and wants us to buy a property there; the only problem is you need to be a millionaire as the houses (well villas) are in the million dollar category! However we still thought it would be a great place to live so we put an offer on a rental property which is a 15 minute walk from my work so hopefully the landlord will accept the low offer we made.
Here are some pics of Devonport that some person has posted on the web: http://www.galenfrysinger.com/nz_devonport.htm
Iron Man 2 btw is an excellent movie! Best film I have seen this year... really funny. As we were entering the cinema some random guy asked us if we had bought tickets to see a film, we hadn’t so we told him “not yet” he then replied, “Here’s a gift, enjoy the movie!” whilst handing us a cinema gift card which was in credit for $30 NZD so we watched the film free what a lovely guy.
Well that’s all for now folks....
