The Forbidden Fruit!

Now that we've finished picking those horrid little things (actually, they were quite good, I should be nice) we are off to the South Island! Marlborugh County here we come!

We plan on picking grapes for a couple of weeks and then heading down to the southern alps to look for jobs and accommodation. The south island is meant to be much more beautiful and even less people live there than they do here on the north island, so it's gotta be gorgeous...literally! Fiords and snowcapped mountains everywhere and endless treks and beaches. Ooooh, I can't wait!

We have a 3 1/2 hour ferry ride tomorrow where we'll take the van and all of our belongings with us. Today we will be staying in Wellington for a night with some friends we met along the way. Not a bad place to have a friend since it's a pretty big city!
