A Short Rest

A travel blog entry by nbinette04


... It is a very nice motel, and our host is very kind and generous, and helped us make plans for our stay. We did some laundry, and then headed into town to take a better view of the beautiful fiordland that surrounds us. We walked up and down the main street, and stopped for a flat white and a milkshake. It was recommended that we see a 30 minute documentary playing in a local cinema showcasing the beautiful scenery which ...

Kepler Track

... on the stove. Kiwis and oranges are the fruits we experimented with this time, mixed in with a Merlot wine. It was quite tasty and sweet! Off to play M.D. and take care of some blisters before bed, our first blisters since Ninety-Mile Beach over 3 months ago! 5/11/14 With a crowded bunkroom, it's no surprise that the early risers made a ruckus that could wake a sleeping giant.

They're just so damn tasty and one is never enough. They're so small. One isn't any kind of serving for a growing man and I'd just been to the gym. Eight ice creams is entirely moderate but still I should have left you at least one. If you're reading this I'm genuinely ...

I Can See Fiordland Now (The Rain Is Gone)

A travel blog entry by tayrae


... just as they were closing the boarding ramp. We made it just in time!

Trying to describe Milford Sound without sounding cliché or repeating myself is not easy. Here are three words that I think describe it best.

  • It is majestic. I had heard a lot about Milford Sound before I went there, so I was expecting it to be impressive…and it was. For those who don’t know, Milford Sound is a fiord – a narrow hallway of sea with ...
