    ... to turn and rather chilly. A group of Chinese parents, kids and teachers from IDEC conference were on the boat, so I was able to chat with the women who started it- pretty radical, especially in China- the iskool, they call it. She said how the parents are anxious about the school. I can only imagine.  Sooo, that day was nice. The next day we evacuated our Nelson hotel and drove down the coast towards Kaikoura. The drive is my favorite so far in New Zealand. Absolutely ...

    ... view dolphins and seals. However, there had been 3 boats out all morning and unfortunately none of them had spotted any so they had to cancel the trip. There is usually a 95% chance that you see whales so this was just my typical luck that there was none about and I was really gutted. To cheer myself up I went and bought ice cream and then went and relaxed on the ...

We decided not to go all the way, had a lovely coffee in Springfield, and drove through the Torlesse Range, part of Canterbury, a rugged, tussock landscape offering some wonderful views. About 33km from Springfield, we stopped to visit Castle Hill - jagged outcrops of limestone rocks seem to resemble a ruined castle. They were huge and we spent a couple of hours just wondering around them. It ...

    ... hours earlier was contemplating staying in the boat to simply watch the porpoises of death devour my loved ones. On our way back to shore (now 90% of the boat was sick) we watched the pod of at least 200 Dusky dolphins jump and flip and surf the waves. It was amazing. And guess what? No sharks!... at least none that I saw.

    We drove up to Picton that evening to catch the ferry to Wellington the next day. I have never slept so soundly; conquering fears takes a lot out of a ...

    ... It was amazing! The weather was perfect – it was the best day we had that week; sunny, clear and warm. It wasn’t a doddle – there were girders to clamber over, and steps – but it wasn’t difficult. The views were wonderful as well but the real thrill was just being up there. The next day we walked across the bridge – even John and there’s a photo or two to prove it. As part of the package I also got access to one of ...
