The Buzzbox Takes on Arthur's Pass

A travel blog entry by vayacondios


When Dorothy booked our car she opted for the smallest cheapest one available due to the cost of hiring cars in NZ, as well as the price of fuel- about $2.20 per litre. It seemed like a good idea at the time, given that we had had good experiences in the States and in Europe with small cars around the 1500 cc size. However, when we picked up our …

By now the rain had set in. By all accounts, …
