Rainy day

... one of the new buses later today thank god. This part of the journey is loads of winding roads through mountains ( a bit like Asturias) and although it's pretty miserable it's still pretty. There is a pub quiz on at the bar in the hostel and it is a birthday of one of the boys on the bus so I think we're all going to have a few drinks and do some bonding ...

After we made our way back down to Christchurch and along highway 73 (Arthur's Pass). We stopped for the night at a DOC campsite which was really good and surprisingly busy! It was free though so we didn't mind :) It got quite cold at night but we were warm in our camper :) x x ...

Wine and Whales

A travel blog entry by tai_and_sarah on Jan 29, 2014

... the clicking sound that the whale makes (loud enough to shatter you entire insides if you were in the water with it) which meant it could be on its way to the surface – and in no time at all we spotted it. It was pretty awesome to see although it did just look like an upside down boat or a log floating in the sea, it wasn’t on the surface for long though and then it dove down again and we got to see what wed all been waiting for and try and get ...
