Kaikora - 30/1/09 - 1/2/09

A travel blog entry by peacock49

For our trip from Christchurch to Kaikoura, we were Relocation Agents!!! A lot of the car hire places like you to relocate cars to various places, if required, and all you have to pay for is the petrol, but you need to ask them - so we did and got a car to take to Picton, and they were happy for us to use it to go to Kaikoura and stay there for the …

Oh hell. 1st test.

A travel blog entry by dave_and_si


First Test. Oh Christ. It's hard to imagine how anything else could have gone wrong. Jade Stadium is a bit of a kharsi.

So much so that the decor inside looks to have been modelled entirely on the Nags Head from ...

A travel blog entry by costin

Just the fishing alone would have been more than enough to make it a great day out, but all the while, there were dozens of Albatross flying around the boat, or floating waiting for offcuts. At one point, we even saw a bit of a scuffle. Two birds with wingspans over 3m makes for quite the spectacle!
