The Dark Times Are Upon Us

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 27 Mar 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [20]

THE WEATHER IN DUNNEDIN WAS A PORTENT OF THE DARK TIMES to come.  It’s a charming city, often compared to Edinburgh, but on both occasions when we visited, it was cold and gloomy.  The first signs of the impending shutdown of the country ... Read more >

A very sad week

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 24 Mar 2020 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [32]

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 11 Mar 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [31]

AKAROA ON THE BANKS PENINSULA IS FULL OF SURPRISES.  There seems to be a new cove or bay with spectacular views around every hill, not surprising since the peninsula was formed by not one, but two volcanoes.  Akaroa means “long harbor”... Read more >
