Queenstown

Monday, 7 Apr 2008 | Views [361]

Queenstown - billed as the centre of partying and adventure activities. Now, as my friends all know I don't jump out of, off or into anything, so as I wasn't going to experience the adventure side I'd have to make up for it on the party side. On our ... Read more >


Wanaka

A quick overnight stop in Wanaka was the perfect break in the long journey from Franz Josef to Queenstown. The hostel called the Purple Cow had fantastic views across the lake and mountains. Didn't do much here just a couple of lakeside walks, although ... Read more >

Monday, 31 Mar 2008 | Views [263]

Caught the Interisland ferry from Wellington to Picton. The crossing takes about 3 1/2 hours and was very smooth. Managed to get an hours sleep which I needed as I had been awake for 42 hours. Although the weather was misty the scenery at the entrance ... Read more >


Wellington

Sunday, 30 Mar 2008 | Views [401]

I've decided to spend quite a few days in Wellington as there is quite a lot to do. I've met up with Rob Cookson, who used to live in Skipton, and we have planned to see a rugby game later in the week. I have also been to see my ex-parents-in-law. ... Read more >
