I made it to NZ! (Part 2)

... way, along the river, through small forests and along the valley itself. Almost as good as the end product really. With global warming its unfortunately that the glacier is continually retreating, with information boards along the walk telling you where it used to be at a certain point in time. However it is still a hugely impressive sight that I really recommend you see what you inevitably visit New Zealand! In the afternoon I booked a couple more hostels, and also my ticket for ...

A whole day journey and Kaikoura

... days of relaxation we took the day very slowly and eventually drive into the town of Kaikoura and had a stroll around the shops so Rachel could buy her family souvenirs. After that we drove along a scenic coast road to see the wildlife that Kaikoura is famous for. We were not disappointed, most of the coast was lined with seals chilling out on all the rocks everywhere. We stopped at a cove and watched them, it was amazing as we saw mothers feeding ...

We was contemplating doing a whale watching trip whilst in Kaikorua ...

Swimmers jumped back in a we got to take loads more photos. There were common dolphins and the dusky dolphins jumping and doing flips. We also managed to get another sighting of the rare Hector’s Dolphins which was really cool, especially as I actually saw them that time!

It was about 9am by this point so it was time to head back, we stood at the front as it was heading back, until it ...

... ran out and were in time to see the whale for a very short period, and then see it raise it's tail and dive. Incredible. We hung around for about 20 mins or so, but the whale showed no sign of re-appearing. So we set of for another location and when we got there another whale for on the surface. We watched this for about 10 mins before it too dived. So two whales in one trip...... we felt very lucky. ...
