I went to the Milford Sound which is famous for beautiful view. we went to Key Summit there is one of trekking cources. that cource takes 3 hours include return time. I was bit tired after trekking. mind you, when we arrived top of the mounten we could see beautiful view:-)
Another thing is, we joined cruises tour. it cost is $50 so it's not bad. we could see dolphins I didn't know that we can see dolphins. I didn't take a picture cuz I wanted to recoard with cell phone.
We stayed a backpackers which was useless. becouse they cut electricity off 11PM to 7AM. we couldn't use a heater and a charger. May is middle autumn in NZ. you know it's cold. it's likes jail, isnt't it?
I changed default shell bash to zsh. it's not speciall meaning, just I want to try another shell. it's so far so good. maybe, zsh is gonna be my default shell.
I found a little bug a softwere, so I reasearched where is cause and I could find it. so I wrote a little patch and sent bug report with patch. that project use sourceforge, but I didn't have account so I create account also I have sourcefoge.jp's account. actully I didn't have to create account. I wanted sourceforge.net's account.
The Tekapo where we went is very peaceful. we stay 2 nights. I saw beautiful stars. we wanted to join star watching tour at there but that day weather was gonna be but so we that tour was close. finally we couldn't join tour:-( if I could join tour, the Tekapo would be my best place. another thing is, there has famous church of course we went there. there is small church although atmosphere is good. also the lake tekapo is good. water is clean and view is good.
lake, church and mountens, tekapo is looks as if there is like movie.
It's lightnig and raining and thunder is very noisy:-(
Anyway, I want to write my trip log. At first, our purpose was go to south island north island is not interested. btw I had to ride ferry becouse our trip started from Auckland. first day we arrived wellington around 9 o'clock. we booked ferry for next day after noon. we had free time so we could walk wellington city.
most people said there is boring so I didn't look forward to walking around. mind you, there was pretty good as far as I'm concerned and lots of people are wearing suit cuz there is capital city!
I stay there just one day so I couldn't compare the Auckland with the Wellington. although, I think the Wellington city is good city.
I reckon that my 2nd best place would be the Mirror Lakes. there is close to the Milford Sound. maybe about 40 min by car. there is small place not so big. even so, there is really beautiful! I took some picture there are like guide book's picture:-) becouse of place! if you want to go to the south island, I'll recommend there!
I went the south island trip about 10 days with my friends. maybe 30th of Apri to 9th of May.
The south island is very buatiful place I've ever gone. especialy my best place have to be the Franz Josef glacier:-) there was amazing place. we joined a tour the cost was $99 so I could walk glacier. before tour I thought there is cold but there isn't I took my jaket off, just t-shirt is enough. I wanted to eat glacier's ice before trip, I did:-) it was kind of. mind you, it was special ice so I'm happy.
anoter thing is, we met a girl she came from Netherland. after tour, we went some beach to see sunset. Actually, I don't know there name but we saw beautiful sunset and mountens. btw, she had a cookies it was yummy! so we bought it sometime after this day.
Anyway NZ's beachs are very beautiful. my hometown is Yokohama city and close to Shonan beach. I can compare Shonan beach to NZ's beach. I'd say Shonan beach is rubbish:-( it's sucks. couse too many people (wspecially in summer time) and really dirty. However, NZ's beachs are clean and not too much people although it's sammer time.
Anyway, the Franz Josef was fantastic place. I'd like to go there again. if I were rich, I would join expensive tour!
I got some pictures from my friend. cheers mate! NZ is gonna be cold, so take care!
it's my memo! $/usr/sbin/update-alternatives --display uic uic - status is auto. link currently points to /usr/bin/uic-qt3 /usr/bin/uic-qt4 - priority 40 slave uic.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/uic-qt4.1.gz /usr/bin/uic-qt3 - priority 45 slave uic.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/uic-qt3.1.gz Current `best' version is /usr/bin/uic-qt3.
uic-qt3 has priority. if you wanna build qt4 software, you have to change priority.
Tomorrow I go back to Japan, so I went to ANZ to close my account. Usually I don't have enough cash on me(sometimes less than $1) couse I used eftpos which is very useful likes devit card system. as I changed NZ$ to US$s TC. recently Japanese YEN is strong. when US$ is strong I'm gonna change US$ to YEN.
I went to the PackinSave to get some souvenir today. I bought a TimTam and NZs wine(I think that may be NZs wine). As some people know the TimTam is not NZs chocolate, it's AUs chocolate . mind you, I like it and I bought it in NZ, so that can be NZs souvenir:-)
btw, I've read The Davinci Code chapter 1 to 10 for 2 days. that's interesting but difficult:-( in 3 days I have a lot of free time, so I could read a lot.
I went to Auckland about 2days then I came back CHC. as I lived in Auckland about 5 months there is comfortable for me. Although, every day raining.
I had a one of my teachers birthday party but I had a cold so I couldn't much enjoy it. I didnt't drink and get back home early. Actually, I clean forgot his birthday but, I was lucky cuz I could join his party.
tomorrow, I'll walk around CHC and but something, day after tomorrow I'm gonna close my account I have to go ANZ. then I go back to japan.
I bought The Da Vinci Code today. I want to finish before watching movie. although, I can't understand first time, becouse it's written by English, so I have to read couple of times or more. I need long time:-(
btw, I'm in Auckland now. weather is raining. Uh it's *real* Auckland.
I go back to Auckland tomorrow morning. I have to get up 4:30am. it's too early, isn't it?
I bought airplain ticket at a Flight Centre(it's BrE style. UmE style is Center). as I wanted cheap round trip ticket. I went to 3 airplain ticket shop and asked price. I compared the Flight Centre to another shops then I bought it. it cost is $295. I think it still expensive but I don't have otherhand:-(
I think that my best NZ city have to be Auckland, cuz I lived in Auckland pretty long time. Although, CHC is good city too.
Anyway I go back to Auckland:-) then I came back to here 13th of May and go back to Japan 16th of May.
My travel was finish yesterday. so I decided next plan. first plan is stay at CHC for 2 months but I changed my mind. so I go back to Japan in this month. after that, I get job, which needs English skills. It's important point for me.
I'll be back *real* world soon.
btw, I went to some place, so I wanna write how was my trip. maybe soon. when I go back to Japan, I'm gonna upload pictures.
