Tidy room. Peculiar way to monitor and limit electricity use. All 3 outlets in the room are run through a single timer . You are required to push the switch every 30 minutes. No overnight charging of electronics.

... our week of hikes.

Monday we set out in a cold south wind to ramble across the rocky ribs that rise behind the hut. Fascinating landscape! The path winds around small buttresses of rock, through low scrub, and past tarns that provide swimming holes in the summer. After a while we got onto a faint track that climbs into a hanging valley on the north side of Mt. Xenicus, which we then followed to the ...

... 8220;one of the best walks of the south island”. So here we were, pushed beyond our potential as the rain pattered down on our windows, our hearts knew this was no day for a 4km walk, yet the stubbornness of the guide book slapped us to the track anyway. Now in truth, the charming creek walkway was just that, charming, the downpour that stalked us each step of the way, not so much. The track was essentially track, as we followed an ...

... repeating "stay on the left." Wayne hit the left turn signal as we exited the first round-a-bout and the windshield wipers turned on! Ooops. We never thought about the turn signals, windshield wipers, lights and radio controls being reversed too! It might be entertaining to park near the airport and see how often people accidentally turn on their wipers. Thank goodness they don’t reverse the gas and the brake!

... to see cars and so many other people. There is road access to Totaranui and a campsite there. Each day we had walked further from our start at Marahau we had seen fewer and fewer people. Lots walk the beginning of the track as a day trip from Kaitriteri or Marahua but few continue further using the camping huts that are in a number of the bays we had passed by. Sue had already arrived at Totaranui and had sat on a long log on the edge of the beach to claim it ...

Takaka Village: Hippie Town of Arts and Organics
Described and recommended to me as “a little hippy town that you’ll love”, Takaka is exactly that. With a population of only 1100, it is the largest town of the Golden Bay area. It is a small town with big character and great vibes. The pace here is unhurried and laid-back and the people are interesting and smiling. Alternative lifestyles ...
