Kaikoura

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 15 Nov 2007 | Views [1139]

We’ve booked 2 nights in a hostel in Kaikoura, but are prepared to stay for 4 – 5 if the surf is right.   We’ve not seen anything that even looks like a wave let alone surf on our trip yet, so our hopes are high.   To increase our chances of surf ... Read more >

Hanmer Springs.

NEW ZEALAND | Thursday, 15 Nov 2007 | Views [367]

We headed out of Hector with a real sad feeling, we were reminded of a saying ‘Do not cry because it’s over, rejoice because you have achieved it’ which we are beginning to understand.   The drive over to Hanmer Springs was via the Lewis Pass, a lovely ... Read more >

Christchurch AGAIN.

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | Views [356]

  The shops are open, Andy’s Kite shop is open; Andy was like a child in a sweet shop as he sat in the buggy only to see that it had the wrong seat attached (I thought he was going cry) Luckily, he had been invited to the factory where they are made, ... Read more >

Dunedin to Christchurch.

NEW ZEALAND | Wednesday, 31 Oct 2007 | Views [474]

  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 [526]

  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 >

Te Anau, Manapouri, Doubtful and Milford Sounds.

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 12 Oct 2007 | Views [944] | Comments [1]

To be woken in the morning by yes you guessed it, more rain.   We were planning a drive up to Milford Sound, but the road was closed due to avalanche; so it was a lazy day for us checking out what the area had to offer us.   We decided that a visit ... Read more >

Franz Josef Glacier.

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | Views [469]

The first thing to mention is the ‘main road’ here, one lane each way and when you get to a bridge; well there is one lane only for both ways.   This is the main roads all they way to Franz Josef, approximately 200 kms.   Also, this is a Mountain ... Read more >
