Food in New Zealand

Monday, 3 Mar 2014 | Views [230]

A short post about the foods in New Zealand for my fellow foodies. These are in no particular order. New Zealand's unique food culture is a combination of popular restaurants. These include Thai, Indian, Turkish kebab places, Irish pubs, a smattering ... Read more >


Milford Sound

Saturday, 1 Mar 2014 | Views [254]

Almost missed the bus this morning for the cruise to Milford Sound. Didn't brush my teeth or get any water. Yikes. But I made it, getting ready in just six minutes. Luckily, I had my clothes and everything already out and ready. And I had bought food ... Read more >

Te Anau

Finally, the sheep. They're everywhere! Might have got one good pic of them from the bus. Deer farms all over too. Fall comes earlier here on the south island. I've already seen several trees that have changed all or part of their coloring. And I ... Read more >

Queenstown

Thursday, 27 Feb 2014 | Views [245]

The mountains changed again on the way to Queenstown. They became much rockier and their sides looked scratched and beaten up. Upon arrival in Queenstown, I'm greeted by a beautiful long lake, Lake Wakatipu,  bigger and less calm than the one ... Read more >

Wanaka

Tuesday, 25 Feb 2014 | Views [297]

Wanaka, pronounced WAH-naka, is a beautiful, quiet place with a gorgeous view from the hostel. What a lake! I feel a bit scattered, but it's okay, this town is slow and peaceful. Perfect! Tuesday night, I had a lovely Thai red curry - vegetarian. ... Read more >

Journey to Franz Josef Glacier

Tuesday, 25 Feb 2014 | Views [297] | Comments [1]

Nelson to Franz Josef Nelson was so lovely and quiet this morning as I walked though it. Wish I could have stayed longer. I saw a rainbow at Nelson beach from the bus on the way out of town. A nice omen, I think. I also saw a paddle boarder and a ... Read more >

This morning, Marcia took the kids to pick up her husband Bob at the airport in Nelson.  I stayed behind and enjoyed a delightful quiet morning on the deck of our little cottage at Abel Tasman Stables.  A beautiful morning. I got a shot of ... Read more >

Journey to the South Island

Sunday, 23 Feb 2014 | Views [262]

Friday From New Plymouth to Wellington, wide flat plains with the mountains in the distance. And hedge rows, they're everywhere. We stayed just outside Wellington at Moana Lodge. It was awesome. Wish I could have stayed longer. Just the most lovely ... Read more >

A short break: Marcia's Place in New Plymouth

Thursday, 20 Feb 2014 | Views [250]

Marcia's home was wonderful. An old farmhouse renovated into a five star home, like something out of a design show on tv. Long panel curtains in every room and big open spaces, all well thought out, relaxed and practical but with a special eye for ... Read more >


Traveling with Marcia, Mick and Maggie

Wednesday, 19 Feb 2014 | Views [343] | Comments [1]

It's been a whirlwind of a week. I met up with Marcia last Thursday. How wonderful to see her again. Little Mick is twice the size since I saw him last, and quite the contrarian so far. You say yes, he says no. But he's two so that's not unusual. ... Read more >
