Holiday in Hanmer

A travel blog entry by elfordfamily


"If we were in Calgary, I would think this was a holiday," said Amanda. "But it doesn't feel like one." She's right, I thought, it would. So, why doesn't it? Because, unbelievably, it's just our lives right now. Going to another town outside of where we have been living day-to-day is just another place to be in our lifestyle of exploring during our …

Which way do you want to go today, Blair??

A travel blog entry by kscottw

"Lets go to Lake Rotoiti," I said. "Where is that?" Blair commented. "Only 50 K away and on the way south." "OK." So we went.

A travel blog entry by nbinette04

Lake Man

A travel blog entry by andygailtravel


After a good sleep, we woke at a reasonable hour and packed up our gear. Today we were heading back to the car, with a side trip to Lake Man bivvy.
