Due to my major flight stuff up I ended up spending an extra day in NZ and then flying through Melbourne. The ordeal cost me $1000 NZD. Quite reasonable you might not think.
I made use of the 15 hours I had in Melbourne and went and visited Karen in St Kilda. We spent the day lazing at the beach in the 36 degree heat.

As I was supposed to be leaving tomorrow I had a bit of a catch up with some friends who weren’t already away on holiday somewhere. There were copious amounts of yummy sugary things.

Of course, seeing has I can’t read it wasn’t actually my last night and instead I spent another day in NZ, paying a mere $1000 for the privilege. Ughh.
Katie and I went through Cave Stream on our way back from Kennedy Lodge. A little mission through Cave Stream is always nice. It takes about 30 minutes to do.
Above left: The walk from the carpark down to the cave entrance takes about 5 minutes . Above right: Katie in Cave Stream.
Above left: Although a brighter light might be better it’s still enough to walk enter the cave with a little light like this one attached to my head. Above right: At the exit.
