Pictures from Paihia/Russell!!!


Nothing too exciting, I'm afraid. I haven't really gone out to do anything but I can definitely show you what I have so far.

From when I first arrived in the Bay of Islands, these are the photos I took while I was in Paihia:


YAY!!! The following photos are from the town of Russell. This is what you see when you walk out of the restaurant that I work at:


The next bit is some of the restaurant that I work in. In the back we have a garden bar that looks like this:


And this is my flatmates and I who work at the restaurant:

From left to right it's Aki, me and Lena. Aki is from Hong Kong and Lena is from Germany. They are both lovely ladies!!!

This is my boss, Bernard:

That is one cool little French dude!!!

The next pictures are of the inside of The Gables which is the area I work in:

Okay, so it's just one photo. But I did take photos of the artwork that is on the wall that I just LOVE!!! It's by this guy named Alan Scott and his work is some of the best I've seen it awhile 'cause it's so different from anything else I've seen. Check it out:

The last one with the castle is my favorite. I think this guy rocks.

Okay, so here are some pics of our new home for the summer:

View of the front.
View from our porch.
That's Lena getting ready for bed. We share a room. It's not bad at all. We get on very well so we are the perfect flatmates. =)
And that's Lena in the kitchen making us her homemade pizza. It was SO good.

In other news, work is good. Slow, but good. Pretty easy, to be honest. And today in New Zealand it is Halloween so I want to wish my mother a happy New Zealand birthday!!! YAY MOMMY!!!

I also want to say hi to my lovely English ladies in Chrstchurch who will be going to Francis' Halloween party. Lucky ducks. Oh!!! Speaking of ducks, we see tons of them around our flat all the time!!! Check it out:

They are so cute!!!

Okay, hello to everyone at Charlie B's........I miss you SO MUCH!!! I wish I was back on the south island so I can dress up with you all tonight. Have fun and take tons of photos for me!!!

Bye everyone, talk to you all soon!!!

Sara, it looks absolutely beautiful there and The Gables looks like a great place to hang out (love the pictures). My favorite part of your blog? Seeing you in the Beatles jacket, of course!
