Hey guys!
I hope you all are having a great weekend.

If you’re looking for a place to relax, New Zealand is the place to be. I know some Kiwi’s (locals of NZ) disagree but believe me, it is such a relaxing place compare to many other countries in this world, like Holland. As an Au Pair your task is to take care of the children, ensure that they behave themselves  and don’t kill each other (without being  the angry babysitter). It can be pretty hard sometimes, but if I look out the window and see the beautiful view, I remember why I’m here again.

So the 1st of February is my last day as an Au Pair here in Auckland, and Saturday I’m heading South, trough the North Island with two other backpackers. Can’t wait to drive and see the beautiful nature, hills, mountains and blue ocean. Until then, I’ve to entertain myself. It’s frustrating sometimes, because I don’t really have a chance to meet new people, because the clubs are in the centre and if I’m going there with the car I’m not allowed to drink anything. But today I finally met the lovely Courtney who lives here in Auckland, who I know for already a few months now via the internet. She found my blog and contacted me via email, and we decide to meet if I were in Auckland, so we did. It was so cool! We had a coffee at the mall and went to the cinema to see the movie Silver Linings (with Bradley Cooper, yumm). The movie was so much fun by the way.
The last week though, wasn’t really exciting. But we went to some area in Auckland to shop, and I bought (as touristy as I am) two New Zealand hats (I really need them in this lovely weather!).
Also I had many coffees and I’ve never seen the screen of my laptop and Samsung so much before. Only a couple days to go and then I’m totally ready to travel trough the North Island!
