I’m really enjoying Queenstown. This place is so beautiful! I didn’t hear back from Luciano’s about the job – their loss I say! But I have had a trial shift at another restaurant called Flame, which is apparently one of the most popular restaurants in Queenstown! And I think it went really well, so fingers crossed I get the job and then I’m sorted for the winter. Coronet Peak (one of the mountains) opens next week for skiing so the season is about to start and I am so ready for it. It’s really boring not having any money, all I’ve been doing in baking cakes and watching films! I’m still enjoying working at Bumbles, I’m meeting new people and having a chilled out time before the craziness of the ski season starts. It has been difficult at times, missing just being able to pop round my friend’s house and see you all.
I’ve played a few rounds of Frisbee golf the past week. Frisbee golf is like golf but with a Frisbee believe it or not! It’s really fun, but I’m really bad at it. Still working on the technique of just throwing the Frisbee! I may buy myself my own Frisbee so I can go play it loads and get better at it! Honest I can only throw it about 6 feet away! Lots of fun though.
Jenny and Sara, the two girls I had met in Asia and then again in Sydney and Auckland arrived in Queenstown for a couple of days last week. It was really good to see familiar faces and we played some Frisbee gold then went to the ice bar and got very cold while sipping cocktails out of ice glasses! We then had a good night out and they left the next day to go to America to carry on with their travels. I’m very jealous; it is very difficult going from moving around all the time and seeing loads of great things to doing nothing and staying in one place for weeks on end!
And then things got bad, because I started having toothache! NO!!!! Been to the dentist today and a root canal is in order bad times! Hehe its okay gives me something to do for the day.
Sorry this blog is by no means interesting; I haven’t been doing anything interesting! Give me time and I will have loads of good stories to tell you.
