Leaving Blenheim, at last (and about time)

It's final, we're finally leaving vineyardland. Not that there isn't enough work to keep us busy for another couple of weeks, but we're so sick of vineyards that we just have to go. Besides, we don't want to spend the whole working holiday in one place. We were already supposed to leave in August, but then one more job came our way, and then another, and another... and if we carried on like this, we'd rot in here forever.

We therefore decided that Saturday is going to be the last day of work and on Monday we leave. Dominik and I are going to do a week's woofing at Mike's farm, really looking forward to it (something tells me we ain't gonna do much work, but it's gonna be a lot of fun). After the woofing we've planned a bit of travelling around the north part of the South Island, and then we probably split and continue travelling separately. Matt got a job in Christchurch, so he's leaving us already.

The time in Grovetown Hotel, the place where we lived for the past three months, has been really nice. We met lots of nice people, had a good time with them, got to know this part of New Zealand rather well, but it's time to move on, and we're all really, really glad we can leave them bloody vineyards behind!
