i’m leaving Aqua Lodge Backpacker on 8th of March to start on my solo travel after my working visa ended on 6th of March where my last employer was Omahuri Orchard [i will write on the working experience after i’ve finish writing on my solo travel (fingers cross guys!)]
I traveled by bus (i have an InterCity bus pass) from Napier to Wellington which is took about 5 hours bus journey and suppose to take the ferry from Wellington to Picton at 1500hrs and suppose to reach Blenheim after another 3 hours journey on the same day as i promise a friend to fetch me before she start her night shift, but because of the unforeseen circumstances, the ferry’s delayed (resumed at 1800 hrs) and reached late from schedule + my friend unable to fetch because she has to work by the time i arrived.
because of that i have to call for accommodation since i am not allow to overnight (backpacker’s style, save as possible as you can) at Picton Ferry Terminal. Luckily i’m quite well prepared and got BBH book on hand. so i just call the hostel so that night i will have a place to sleep.
that night i choose to stay at Tombstone Backpackers since only them available and can do a pick-up. It’s very nice backpackers and apart you have a free breakfast you also can have an access for free unlimited wifi 🙂
even tho i missed the breakfast (overslept) but i heard that the owner made a very yummylicious scone! and from here too i learn about the Mail Run which i will for sure take part before leaving the South Island.
