Our final month here. (warning it's long read)

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 28 Feb 2008 | Views [1017] | Comments [1]

All good things come to an end, as we have been told whilst here “Do not cry because it’s now over, but rejoice that you have committed effort to something you’ll truly miss”   That’s how we feel, we are making every effort to come back over here;... Read more >

Wanganui or is it Whanganui?

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 4 Feb 2008 | Views [752]

Well the City is Wanganui and the River and district is Whanganui, as if the place names were not hard enough for us to pronounce and understand.   We arrived at the large Victorian Hostel to find a lovely room over looking the River, which is affectionately ... Read more >

On the way to Raglan for New Year.

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 8 Jan 2008 | Views [560]

We had a couple of days to ‘waste’ before we were due at Raglan for the New Year, so we booked ourselves into a couple of smaller hostels on the way down to recover after our Christmas in the Sun.   The Sun was out so the trip was good and we arrived ... Read more >

Off to Paihia.

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 30 Dec 2007 | Views [488]

Paihia is a small place on the East coast of the Northland area of NZ, a place we would’ve liked to have spent more time at; loads of trips and things to see.  We arrived about midday, put our steaks away and headed down the short walk into town; we explored ... Read more >

Orewa North – The start of our Christmas Northland tour.

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 30 Dec 2007 | Views [469]

We have made a decision to skip Auckland until we are closer to leaving New Zealand, so for this reason we are heading straight through on our way to Orewa North; we arrived on a very windy and rainy day.  Tide full in so no Kite buggy for Andy, wind ... Read more >

On the road to Brian’s place

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 8 Dec 2007 | Views [557]

We headed out not knowing what to expect of the North Island?   We had heard many different versions of what was ahead of us, some good and some bad (if NZ could have bad?) but we came this far and we were going to see it for ourselves. As soon ... Read more >

Dunedin to Christchurch.

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | Views [479]

  We headed out of Dunedin to a small beach just north called ‘Boulder’ beach for obvious reasons as you can see, the boulders were created over millions of years; but were have been told at least three versions of how. We gather that no one really knows ... Read more >

Southern Scenic drive 2nd half, Porpoise Bay – Dunedin

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | Views [530]

  We had to move on again, it’s strange how you do get ‘itchy feet’ when you have been travelling around. We didn’t go far this time, only 20 km up the road (this was due in part to Andy miss reading the scale of our map); one night planned in a hostel ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | Views [1012] | Comments [1]

Well, this RAIN is forecast for a few days, so we decided to cut our losses and head down to Te Anau for a couple of days to see the Doubtful and Milford sounds.   As we entered the Hasst Pass for the return leg to Wanaka, the rain was still falling;... Read more >

Well we have made it to New Zealand, first stop is Christchurch for a couple of days. First impression is that it’s a nice city, but we were so busy sorting ‘stuff’ out that we are planning to return to see the whole thing.   The trip from Christchurch ... Read more >

The 3rd and final leg to Christchurch NZ

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 15 Sep 2007 | Views [432] | Comments [3]

Well, after Fiji sorry to say the third leg is boring to say the least.   A beautiful boat ride back to the main Island, grab a shower at the airport; yes even Fiji has a much better airport than LA.   Boarded a lovely plane which only had thirty ... Read more >

The second leg

FIJI | Saturday, 15 Sep 2007 | Views [492]

Well LA was a real eye opener, BIG and LOUD.   The airport was awful, considering that LA is ‘a major city’ very small departures area, all queuing outside due to lack of space inside for security checks; lucky we decided to go a little earlier and ... Read more >

USA | Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | Views [423] | Comments [2]

Well, were on our way.  We decide not to do the 'were packing and getting excited' bit and thought we would start when were on our way. Were sat in our LA Hotel writing this, so that's half way to Fiji, the flight over was good; no 'lumps and bumps' ... Read more >
