Various Roads/Mountains

As we are driving around the beautiful South Island of NZ, we're stopping off in so many places, sides of the road to take pictures, little towns and I have forgotten the names of pretty much all of them! But the pictures are not to be wasted!

Hanmer Springs and The Glaciers

 Stayed one night in a gorgeous little log cabin in Hanmer Springs, with log burner and friendly neighbourhood dog! Went and spent an afternoon in the hot pools too.

Dolphin Watching in Kaikoura

Most amazing thing ever and a must do for anyone visiting NZ! On a very sunny but cold winters morn we headed out on the boat, only spectating as it was far too cold to swim. Soon surrounded by over 300 dolphin, racing alongside the boat, doing backflips and somersaults, simply amazing!

Heading for the South Island

Crossing over to the South Island was so calm and the scenery was stunning! Sailed from Wellington to Picton then started to drive down along the coast.


A beautifully preserved 1930's town on the east coast of New Zealands North Island. After being partly destroyed in the 30's by an earthquake, it was re-built and is now a beautiful tourist attraction. I loved all the art deco buildings and ceramic tiles in the streets.
