          Nice place but could have been cleaner

          Good sized comfortable apartment with good facilities including laundry. Some have good views. We had the two bedroom apartment which has the entrance is through the garage which opens with a remote control. From here there is no lock on the door to the apartment, not sure that is secure. The level of cleaning was not good when we were there, there were cobwebs all along one wall and we had to vacuum when we got there. We were told it was a new cleaning company and they would look into it.

          Reports are that the Otago region is having its worst summer for 20 years. The big high pressure systems that are giving Sydney such a scorching January are blocking normal weather patterns and are driving up cool and wet weather over the South Island from the Southern Ocean. It was going to catch us sooner or later and so it was that our only full …

          New Zealand generally, and the mainland (South Island) in particular, seem more British than Australia. Perhaps it's the lower levels of immigration. Perhaps too it's the milder climate, that would have made it easier for British immigrants to make a life here that was similar to that at 'home'. One sign is the way the Kiwis like using language …

          ... in the gondola, we the rode the luge down part of the way. It's a race track, with two different courses and you ride down in your little kart and then get a cable car back up. We had tickets to do this three times and each time was just as fun as the last. Although, I must admit that despite my 5 layers, and gloves, my fingers were frozen by the end of it! Thankfully not frost bitten ...

          ... used the conveyor lift to slide down a 10 metre or so slope. Soon Tash was turing around cones (neither had poles - easier to learn without apparently). Ed found it a bit tougher as he (as ever) wants to be an instant expert, but he improved also and they moved on to the button lift up the big slope. Ed sat out for a bit until he had seen that Tash was having a great time then was keen to get back involved. He enjoyed this 'proper' skiing bit more than the ...

          ... to find an awesome house and it is just lush. I luckily only had to wait 2 weeks until I found somewhere to live, as some people had been searching for ages and as I came down to Wanaka just before the job started, I've been lucky as most people moved down here weeks before. I live people who work up the mountain and are in F&B but different cafes, so it's great as we don't work and live together but we each know all the gossip from each of ...
