It was 2300 by the time we got home; A long day of driving, flying and waiting. I pushed the door open at home and two little faces greeted me expectantly. Happily.
"Hello Merlin and Cleo," I exclaimed! A grin splitting my face apart almost as well as the headache I'd developed over the day was spli
We sprung into the air, no longer in physical contact with New Zealand itself. The ground dropped away rapidly as we ascended into the bright blue sky climbing higher and higher. Our thoughts turned towards home, our beloved Australia, seeing our cats and planning for our next holiday. OK, so my min
About seventy five kilometres north of Dunedin in the Oamaru district lies a unique beach called Koekohe - Well, I guess the beach itself isn't all that unique however the spherical boulders found on the beach certainly are.
The boulders have been fo
Today we took a drive to the Otago Peninsula to the east of Dunedin where we had two locations pegged as places we wanted to visit, and all day to do it. So, we set off on what looked like a beautiful-weather-day, to head to the area and see what we
This morning we woke to a cold and wet Dunedin after a lot of overnight rain - None of which I heard falling. It was disconcerting however we focused on maintaining a positive attitude whilst we got ourselves ready for our days' outing and had some b
We reached our final stop on our New Zealand vacation today; Dunedin, on the south-east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, is where we'll be based for the next 4 to 5 days as we take in the sights.
After arriving and settling in we decided to take a drive around and check out the lay of the l
Today is our last day in Te Anau prior to heading to the south-east of New Zealand in the morning. We'll be leaving New Zealand's second-largest lake and Fiordland behind, however will take along some good memories of it through a couple of great adv
One hundred and twenty kilometres away from Te Anau, up a narrow and winding mountain road, lies Milford Sound - However, it’s not really a Sound at all, it’s a Fiord. You see, a Sound is carved out by water, a Fiord by a glacier. So, why is it called a Sound? Well, it was named prior to knowing it’
Today we headed out of Queenstown towards the south and the lake-side town of Te Anau - Gateway to the Fiordland National Park. We'll be heading north from here to Milford for a cruise on Milford Sound tomorrow, but more on that later.
We hit the road this morning, southbound initially and then west to Te Anau and brand new adventures. We're probably driving right now, as you read this, enjoying the amazing views here in New Zealand. [Depending on when you're seeing this post thoug
Today marks the last full day we will spend in Queenstown, New Zealand - We're heading out tomorrow for the drive to Te Anau in the Fiordland area for a cruise on Milford Sound, a glow worm tunnel tour and hopefully some exploration hikes in the Fiordland National Park - Weather permitting anyway.
Hi y'all from Queenstown NZ...Again. Yep, we're still here, for a few more days, before we head off to our next location of Te Anau. It's an easy place to stay though - Great food, amazing scenery and awesome things to do!
Today we headed over to the
