5am and on a boat as dawn broke. What a day we had today. Swimming in the morning with more than 300 dolphins in their natural habitat. It was an amazing experience. They are the happiest creatures they jump and play and when you are in the water they play with you.
Back on land by 9am and after breakfast we headed to The Marlborough …

After Hanmer Springs we visited Motueka. The journey took most of a day and the scenery was, again, spectacular. The route took us along the road that had been reported to have suffered a washout. The road was open again although half of it ...
