Abel Tasman

Having cleaned up after our cooked breakfast we continued our journey on another frosty morning through the mountains. It turns out 'just short of' doesn't necessary mean 'all that close to', so we had a good couple of hours in the van before we made it to Abel Tasman. Our campsite hosts had insisted we make it as far as the well known Golden Bay and recommended a peek at the Wainui Bay waterfalls and beach, which by his reckoning, together make up the ...

... ideal start to our day! When we reached Wharariki we were once more out on the tramping trail, this one in particular couldn’t have been more “New Zealandy” if it tried, with views of crisp green apple grassy hills complete with barmy sheep – and to make this walk even barmier, it was headed towards a beach, from countryside to beachside in one walk –mental!

A very good day in a very special place. I wish the photos could do it ...

... for someone who either had no plans at all, or very loose plans for traveling the south island. I am a firm believer that when traveling, no plan is the best plan. I do have a rough idea of what I’d like to see and a logical route that I’d like to take, but nothing specific or mapped out. I like having the freedom to just start driving and stop wherever looks or sounds cool, and stay for however long it suits me and whomever I am with. I wanted someone who could be flexible ...
