Sorting My Car Insurance in Auckland – Day 9
Tuesday 5th April 2005
I wanted to do a bit of work on the gears in my car today as they are crunching a little. It seemed like a good place to have a look, and I’m sure I can get help from the hostel owner if I have any problems.
I had a good night sleep and awoke nice and refreshed for the day ahead. The facilities in this place are very nice, a very welcome change from what I have been using up until now. It was a lovely day and I was looking forward to being out in the glorious sunshine.
I headed into town for some things that I needed, and checked the emails from home. I asked dad about forwarding some information onto me about working on the gears on my car, something I would attempt today as the gears crunch into first. It isn’t a major problem but its something I want to look at and sort out if I can.
With the information written down I headed back to the hostel where the car was waiting for me, then immediately began the process of finding out what was wrong. I took a good look at everything I would have to do, but very quickly decided that it was something I would never be able to do on my own, so I left it. I could make do with it I am sure.
Another aim of this day was to get my car insurance sorted. There was a place that dealt with backpackers insurance specifically, and it was situated back in Auckland city, so this is where I was headed next. I found the hostel and sorted all the necessary paperwork, but was a little surprised at the cost. However, it was peace of mind at least.
I spent a lot of the afternoon at the beach before returning home with my evening meal and some beer. I wondered if it would be another night like last night, but as it happened I was the only one in the hostel this evening. For now anyway. I had my dinner and just as I was tidying up, more people arrived. I spoke to the newly-arrived couple for a bit throughout the evening, but when everyone had gone to bed, so did I. It wasn’t late but I was the only one up, and I was a little tired.
