Waiheke & Rugby!

Highlights this week:

Monday (June 6): Theresa, Evan, and I went on a little trip to Waiheke Island for the day. Fun fact: Waiheke means waterfall.

My buds

We were so happy we could relax for a bit.

RED wine

The wine pourer laughed at me because I took approximately 1,293 (give or take a 1,000; hyperbole for emphasis) photos of her pouring the wine into the cups.

I forgot what this was called

However, I didn’t forget that it didn’t taste bad. Also: I’ve realized since being in New Zealand that I use a lot of double negatives.

Swirling

Cool people swirl wine in their cup, right?

Joy Ice Cream

Ice cream is pretty good, but it tastes even better when it’s a few dollars cheaper than normal.

Wednesday (June 8): Made some fries for my flatmates!


Thursday (June 9): Went to a chocolate place with the buds.

“Lemme take a picture!”

Theresa: uh…okay

Later that day, we got Sal’s for our last ISA excursion and then went to an All Blacks rugby game!! So fun.

Rugby!

It’s awesome how fast they throw the ball. Also, I like that the game didn’t feel too long.
