Die Südinsel - erstmal im Regen

Unsere erste Nacht auf der Südinsel haben wir mit folgendem Ausblick verbracht. Am Morgen war es bewölkt mit leichtem Regen - könnte besser sein. Vorbei ging es an - trotz des Wetters noch - schönen Fjorden. Nachdem wir ein paar Kühe gejagt haben, sind wir noch zur Cable...

Valentine's

We left Motueka to head for Nelson after Chris helped to rescue a cat stuck up a tree, as we were advised of a cheap camp nearby. We diverted through Richmond and had a lovely lunch, me – sushi, Chris – Chicken Laksa. We also bought supplies for a nice Valentine’s dinner. We found the camp,...

The Centre of NZ

Today I have a sort-of lie-in, then head out to walk up to the centre of New Zealand (apparently someone decided it was on a hill on the outskirts of Nelson... so, it's there). The route takes you through the town centre, past a few hippie buses, and a really good violinist busker, and up a...

Nelson... city of sun (just not today)

The bus ride to Nelson today was great - short, but passing by the Pelorus Sound and Havelock, with a stop-off at a lagoon-type area at Pelorus Bridge which would have been great to swim in if we'd had time. Nelson (the sunniest place in NZ apparently, but failing at that today) is colourful,...

Half Nelson

Our bus from Blenheim ended in Nelson. This time we were prepared for there to be no Naked Bus and managed not to miss our transport again. We hadn't originally planned to stay in Nelson but the bus timetables made it impossible to avoid, however we were arriving after dark then leaving first...

Killing Time

I rolled off the ferry in Picton at about 5.30am and began the drive towards Nelson. Yeah yeah I know Nelson is a tiny bit out of the way of Christchurch which is where I'd be meeting my sister in a couple of days but despite all this new found inner peace happy happy joy joy bollocks I'd still...

Horatio

Looong day's drive to Nelson in the north-west of the north island, gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park. Pretty rubbish weather, but went out for a day of kayaking round the coast followed by trekking along the coastal path anyway, which was all very good. Although my knees are giving me a...

Kayaking Pepin Island - Night 88

Glen, a guide from the Cable Bay Kayak company, picked me up at 8:30 and gave me a lift to their home base, just a short, 20-minute drive north of Nelson. The sky was overcast and a bit windy, hardly the picture perfect kayaking weather of yesterday. Our half day trip would take us up and...

Finally some sunshine in Nelson!

Hello from sunny Nelson in the South Island! Happy New Year to all of you and thank you for all your kind e-mails and loving thoughts you've been sending these past days and weeks. We wish that we had more time to respond to the e-mail and update the blog site, but we don't want to spend the...

Havelock to Nelson - Night 87

I wandered the side streets of Havelock for my morning walk and stumbled upon the Havelock Cemetery. A brief investigation showed that no one had been buried here since 1996. Many of the old tombstones had tipped over, likely the end result of some juvenile prank, yet the lawn was freshly...
