My knees are covered in greeny-blue bruises and I still can’t extend my arms properly. All in the hopes of being a kickarse snowboarder. Personally I think I should drop this dream now. I’m a total chicken when it comes to the top slopes of the mountain and always find myself in the baby-zone. Shush. There are still slopes in the baby-zone and it still hurts like hell when you bail.
Overall our weekend at the snow was awesome and freezing. I experienced two firsts while on this trip; 1) a fresh snowfall at ground level (it was like a Christmas movie!!) and 2) I was accused of being a lesbian.
True story! It happened like this…
I’m sitting in the mountain cafe trying to warm up… minding my own business as my friend had just popped to the bathroom, when a boy of about 18 strikes up a conversation…
Boy: Oh wow, your iPhone cover is awesome. I haven’t seen one like that before.
Me: Oh thanks – yeah I just found it on TradeMe.
Boy: It’s really cool. Are you with her? (he asks, pointing after my friend who’s just gone to the bathroom)
Me: Yes. (thinking he means here with her, in general)
Boy: Aww that’s really cute.
Me: *blank, confused stare*
We told the boys of this later, their response: “Awesome! Interracial, skiing lesbians!!”
zooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom. We’re off for the weekend to the family bach.
I will post my 30 days of me blog entries when I return. All those in New Zealand make sure to stay rugged up and warm inside, it’s going to be a shocker!
But right now it’s time to indulge in some red wine, chocolate, cheese & crackers and a good gossip and catch up with the girls!
Late tomorrow afternoon we’re hitting the road, for a camping trip at Kai Iwi Lakes – apparently it’s spectacularly beautiful – I’ve never been. Myself and the uni crew are off for a long weekend of well deserved relaxation, drinking, tanning, wakeboarding, rubber-ring floating, eating, gossiping and anything else that comes when eight guys and five girls hit the road for a three-day weekend, celebrating the end of exams and the end of university forever for most of us, not all.
As a side note, I realise I talk about these friends a lot on here. You all must be wondering who they all are? Well sadly I don’t have a photo of them all together. I will try my best this weekend! I know that most of them now read this blog, so I think they need to have their smiley little faces up here. Haha.
I am looking forward to the stunning spot, the relaxation and fun! Positive thinking on the gorgeous weather, please!!!
This country is stunning. Last weekend I was snowboarding up a mountain, only five hours from where I live. This weekend I was tanning in the sun and out playing on the beach, – even got slightly sunburnt – only three hours from where I live. Seriously, what country can top that?! NONE!
It was a chilled, boozy, stunning and crack-up weekend. Couldn’t ask for more!
"show us ya legs!!!" i am awake... promise!
It’s now back to the real world, unfortunately. It’s serious time. Time to work hard at uni, my bikini bod and saving for my New Years trip! I’ve done a lot of playing hard in the last couple of months. Now I should work hard… *grumble*
