It was the first time I have flown – it was a bit scary from Napier and then as soon as I landed in Wellington I just wanted to carry on flying. I think what put me off the first time was listening to the news and hearing about the planes crashing overseas, but it was as easy as going in the taxi. The second plane was noisy – I couldn’t even hear what they were saying but it was a really short flight. In Blenheim the security staff took me to the taxi stand – my taxi was already there so I didn’t have to wait. They took me to the ferry terminal in Picton. It was a very long wait there. Aaron and I were the first ones but after lunch the other Outward Bound students started coming in. There were lots of courses starting, not just Activate so there were loads of people. We had to line up in alphabetical order and then everyone got onto the boat. The trip to Anakiwa was a bit bumpy – it was my first time on a ferry and was good fun.
