Banks Peninsula - Finally Some Dolphins

A travel blog entry by stuli


After a wonderful stay in Mount Cook we finally had to move on, but only to a couple of hours down the road and the town of Tekapo on the shores of Lake Tekapo.

The lake is renowned for being an incredible colour, a fact which is hard to argue with, it being a bright turquoise when we arrived, but still clear enough to see straight to the …

Zwemmen met dolfijnen

A travel blog entry by yts


Onze laatste dag in Nieuw Zeeland gaan we naar Akaroa, een schitterend kustplaatjes met Franse accenten. Daar gaan we in de middag zwemmen met dolfijnen.

Met een boot en ongeveer 10 mensen gaan we de zee op. Gekleed in een wetsuit. Het water is slechts 15 graden.

... having us. We sat looking though their travelling books which were really interesting there were some pictures which were practically identical to ones we have taken such as the one in the Whitsundays by the railings. It was nice to see their adventures and hear the funny stories that went along with them.

    Double Dutch is a small, homey place in Okains Bay, Akaroa. We really enjoyed our stay there. The proprietors live onsite, and are very helpful. There are only three rooms, so it's a small, intimate setting. The house is lovely, well-appointed, and immaculate. The kitchen is large, and there are eating spaces both indoors and outdoors. This was our favorite hostel by far.
