Bay of Plenty, Opotiki

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 8 Dec 2007 | Views [866] | Comments [1]

We had arrived on a Saturday late afternoon, both tired from the days drive; we settled into our beach view room with ease and started to mingle with our new neighbours.   Mingling with a small group of Germans who all work together at the local Kiwi ... Read more >

Brians Place to Opotiki.

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 8 Dec 2007 | Views [638]

This was a much further drive than we had thought, the drive North was fine; but heading along the Northern facing coastline was really hard full of twist and turns.   Saying that it was a hard drive does take into account that we were stopping off ... Read more >

On the road to Brian’s place

NEW ZEALAND | Saturday, 8 Dec 2007 | Views [554]

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 >

On the road to Wellington.

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 29 Nov 2007 | Views [376]

We had decided to stop off at the ‘Tipi stay’ hostel, a full night in a genuine North America Tipi; a very strange night.   We arrived to yet another glorious evening, full of sunshine and blue skies; we were shown around our ‘room’ for the night ... Read more >

Abel Tasman & Golden Bay.

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 29 Nov 2007 | Views [492]

We were staying in Pohara, which is on the road to North Abel Tasman Park; only 45 min’s drive into Abel Tasman park from our small hostel.   Em & I decided that we would head into the park and have a day of walking and scenery, we headed to Totaranui ... Read more >

Nelson – Pohara

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 29 Nov 2007 | Views [655]

We went to Nelson, and we left Nelson; not a lot to say really.   Nice little Hostel, but we wanted to head out sooner rather than later; was useful though as we found the garages for the W.O.F (MOT in UK) for The Bug.   We headed out on our way to ... Read more >

Hopewell.

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 29 Nov 2007 | Views [1193] | Comments [1]

Em and I had been in The Hopewell Lodge for about an hour, this was enough time to decide that we wanted to extend the stay to 3 nights.   It was so peaceful here, partly due to its remote location we suspect; but there were none of the usual ‘backpacker’ ... Read more >

On our way to Hopewell.

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 29 Nov 2007 | Views [485]

We had left Kiakoura on a renewed high from the Sperm Whale sighting, still no Surf for Em’ even at the ‘Meatworks’ a place that by all accounts ‘always has Surf, mate’ we had been told by many on our way up the East Coast.   For this day at least, ... Read more >
