Auckland: After one week.

Well, I’ve now been in Auckland for a week.

Auckland and Wellington both have the same weather pattern: fine and sunny during the week and raining during the weekend. The difference is that in Wellington the rain comes with wind, in Auckland it comes with humidity.

"Summer school" was okay. I really only did it because I figured it was the best way to met people. And I was right. I’ve meat some really great people here and some really interesting ones too. One guy biked and skateboard around the world. In fact, is in the presses of applying to getting it recognised as a Guinness world record. Here his website. . Another guy was in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe movie. Although I’m a bit disappointed that I’ve only managed to collect one quote so far...... Have to work on that one.

I've done lots of exciting things as well. We went to an outdoor movie the other night, which were lots of fun. Also went to a drive out to Owera way and to a gig Friday night. There is a bowling alley just a couple of doors down, which we tried out one day after class. The Pac n Save across the road claims to be the largest supermarket in New Zealand, which is great.

So the first week at Laidlaw was great. Classes proper start this week. Looking forward it.

The Bible is the norming norm.

Question of the day: Do smiley’s count as punctuation?

Nathan goes over to the darkside......

For those who didn't know, I'm off to Auckland to study Theology at Laidlaw College this year. So big changes for me. New city, new church, new job (hopefully), new people, new weather. But I will still be supporting Wellington sports teams: The Hurricanes, Phoenix and Lions. I leave tonight: were driving up, but only going as far a Taupo tonight. So this is goodbye to all you awesome Wellingtonians out there. I’ll be back....just don't know when. I'll try to keep this blog updated more than I have been- so more than once every couple of months. And you can always Facebook me, Twitter me, text me, email me...... you can try to bebo me too, but I don’t check it that regularly, so I might not see it for a while. Or you leave a comet here. And if you want to send me something via snail mail you can send it to

Don’t put "Laidlaw College" on it; it apparently confuses the posties...

Thanks for the support. And if you can pray for me too that would be greatly appreciated.
