The epic adventure to New Zealand!

Ahhhh man after a 25 hour day of traveling I must admit it feels great to finally be here! Its crazy to think that when traveling here I skipped over the 16th of August! I was pretty bummed about having to be on a plane for 13 hrs here but it actually wasn't that bad at all. I watched 3 different movies to stay awake for the first 6 hours which was a little tough but then I popped 2 Advil PM's and pretty much slept the rest of the way until we had like an hour and a half left in the trip. We first flew into Auckland and it was pretty cold and rainy. Then we hopped on another flight to Queenstown. We hopped in this tiny van packed all of our stuff up and headed to town. After an amazing double cheeseburger at ferburger we packed back into the van and headed to Wanaka. Once we got to Wanaka then we unpacked into our rooms and headed into the town there where it turned sunny! We (team USA) walked around by the lake slack lined for a bit and then ate at an Indian restaurant which was amazing!! Now we are layin low in the condo and getting ready to hot tub then go to bed and shred tomorrow!!
