Tartan settlers, and penguins

A travel blog entry by lyndsey-martin


... street in the world. Lynds, quite sensibly, opted to stay in the car while I walked to the top, sodden and out of breath by the time I got there. Still, it was worth it. I became glad not to have driven up the hill after I saw a resident drive uphill, revving the engine loudly, and fish-tailing the back wheels on slippery concrete road all the way up. Walking downhill in the wet was dangerous too, so much so that I used the steps (steps!) on ...

Dunedin parkrun

A travel blog entry by johnnym


... Once at the top there's a short flat section, one more plodding climb during an out-and-back section and then a swooping descent.

Lucky, for us, we pay cash.

After our errands, we went to a nice beachside restaurant for lunch for ...

New Year Kiwi style

A travel blog entry by katandpete


... and croissant in one of the lakefront cafes :-) We were there in the run up to new year when the town hosts a major music festival and literally every bed in every building in town was full and a shanty town or more accurately shanty city of tents had been set up on some local farmland. Despite the obvious numbers of people it never felt crowded or uncomfortable and I would have happily stayed for another couple of weeks. Possibly the best part of our stay was ...
