On Wednesday the tour left Greymouth and headed to Nelson. On the drive to Nelson we stopped at Cape Foulwind. We saw a few seals on the rocks at the Cape.
Which way should I go????
This is how far New York is from Cape Foulwind.
I have made a new friend on my journey in New Zealand. Her name is Katja and she is from Germany. Katja has been traveling for I believe 4 months now.
During the drive we went through many National Parks. One of the national parks was Paparoa National Park to see Pancake Rocks.
It was a good day to be traveling because the weather on the western part of the Southern Island of New Zealand gets the most rain in New Zealand and many other cities in the world. In the evening we went on a brewery tour to Montieths Brewery Company. Katja, Gina, Jaime and myself tasted all 7 beers and rated them on a scale 1 being not so good to 5 being fantastic.
Our tour guide whispered in my ear saying that I needed to go check out the men's room. He said he would not tell me why. So I had to go check it out. When I walked into the men's room this is what I saw:
Of course then I decided I should take a funny picture.
As you can see I had a great time. After the tour we got to pick our 2 favorite beers and got to pour the beer from the tap at the bar. After the brewery tour and tasting we headed to a BBQ and got one free beer of our choice from the brewery. I met some more American’s at the bar. It is kind of nice to run into people from your own country being so far away. Tomorrow the tour is heading to Franz Joseph to see some Glaciers.
