Rainy picton

A travel blog entry by jojo-a-lenka


... to cope with it. The worst was a road closure on the Queen Charlotte drive that was supposed to save us some 60 km but instead it cost us some 90 km extra. The closer we got to Picton the worse the situation became and we started to worry if we even gonna make it in one piece and maybe more importantly if we were going to make it back to Christchurch. :)

North Island Antics

... minute before the parachute opened and I got to steer the parachute myself. The views were incredible and I was so so happy I was alive. All in all it was the best experience and the most amazing day despite my tears and tantrums and we finished it off watching a beautiful sunset at the sky dive centre.

My first stop was Hobbiton, for a tour of the movie set where they filmed the hobbit holes during both The Lord ...

The Claridge family adventure: Part I

A travel blog entry by amyclaridge23


... What is this thing and how we operated it we did not know. With a few false starts and panicked moving forwards on my part, my brother (being the 'man') took over and did exactly the same thing but carried on and with me navigating drove us into our 'lodge' (bullcrap, it's a hostel, you ain't fooling anyone ... Except me, apparently). Queenstown is bloody beautiful. I'll attempt to add photos if I can figure it out. It's this tiny 'city' on a lake in the middle of the mountains and it ...
