Our first night was quite fun too. After moving in, we realized our furnished apartment had a bed frame and a box spring. That’s all in that area, which was a problem. It was too late to go find any stuff, i.e. mattress, sheets, pillows, blankets. You know, all those extra things. But being the resourceful travelers we are (or just too dang tired), we made it work. Andrew made the bed by putting out our travel neck pillows and laying out a selection of clothes to pad the box spring (not cushy at all) and cover us. After we spent an hour laughing, maybe a little hysterically, we tucked ourselves in. That’s right, we are classy people - sleeping in a nest of our own clothes. Not the best night ever, but actually not as bad as I thought it would be. Please don’t judge us - desperate times, desperate measures! Needless to say, shopping was the first thing on the agenda in the morning.
A few pictures of our place:
We are very lucky to live only a few minutes from the library, where we have been hanging out for their internet. It’s a bit patchy so sometimes we go to a big entertainment centre where we can get 1 free hour per day. So we are kind of being internet hobos! Speaking of which, we are on skype at andrew.geralis so feel free to chat. Anyways, the library is free to join and has a good selection of dvds and books. We requested Lord of the Rings, and are looking forward to seeing New Zealand from that perspective (also to check out one of the places we visited! - more later).
