I sold my car today. Yaaah. Bought for $1900. Sold for $1300. Only cost me $600 for 9 weeks which is around £200 UKP.
Plus the $2000 of fuel or whatever I guess and a new set of tyres at $180.
So what did I do?
Hire a campervan. So I pick up an Apollo 2 berth Hi Top Cheapa camper on Friday (complete with hangover maybe after comedy festival?) until Wednesday afternoon, giving me one full day in Auckers before I head to Japan to purchase all the books that I think I’ll maybe get round to reading…..despite having three excess books lugged through New Zealand. My campervan hire is only costing me $200 – just over a tenner UK per day as it’s low season. And I cannot wait to get out an about it in as I always ‘promised’ myself a camper in NZ.
So now I have the best of both worlds. A sports car, and a campervan. And I’ve just booked diving at at Dive Tutukaka at the Poor Knights Islands on Saturday. I’ll probably have more than one day but will suck it and see.
So a few hours ago I got £1300. In the last hour I’ve just committed myself to $440. By the time I return from the Poor Knights I may have blown the lot. But hey. I’ll be diving, and I’ll be in a campervan.
