Kia Ora from the South Island, NZ

... around them and Safety Warning signs everywhere. It doesn’t look as though much repair work has been done at all. We were told that this is because the drainage system underground needs to be fixed before the buildings can be reconstructed. From what we saw, that’s going to take a long time.

Most of the missions to Antarctica leave from NZ, and a lot of countries have their bases there. We visited the Antarctica centre for a bit of fun. The best part ...

The last leg of our camper van journey.....

A travel blog entry by rob-heulwen


... gave quite a bit of stuff away to fellow campers ( a Scot and a Kiwi), only to find out as we left the campsite that the hotel having said they could take us last night, had given our room to someone else. Unfortunately we hadn't confirmed the booking last night because we were enjoying ourselves at the hot tubs!. Damn! So another night in the camper on a site in Christchurch, which took a bit of finding. Oh well it's much cheaper than a hotel....... So the journey on SH 8 ...

Day 42 Kirwee

A travel blog entry by stuartandsue


... there were toilets in the Brew Moon microbrewery and cafe!!! Apart from the toilets they also sold beer and it would be rude not to! We had a taster tray between us (Colin had coffee). Very interesting Olé Molé with a chile chocolate flavour. This is not a session beer and Sue was not keen but I thought it was good as a one off! On for Colin's haircut at the shearing shack, a garden shed at the side of the road! Lovely, friendly ...

The Speight's Coast to Coast Race

A travel blog entry by teamjenkins


... into the transition area at Aitkens, a grass field filled with hundreds of support crews anxiously looking out for their competitors. It was like arriving at Heathrow arrivals hall and trying to find a family member amongst hundreds of faces. Simon was expecting Charlie to arrive first and was a little surprised to see me in the front bunch – but once identified he hurried me away from the crowd to the area where he had placed our run gear, while friends Asher and Scotty ...

Daniel and Gemma's Wedding Day

A travel blog entry by tony-helen


Firstly a weather is 6.30am and it is cloudy with keen breeze but it is dry and hopefully will brighten during the day. We had a good FaceTime session with Craig and Siobhan to catch up on their wedding plans. They have been really busy, have confirmed their date, venue and now the Registrar is booked they know what time the marriage is. However, details will follow when they are ready to tell people or give us the go ahead. Will be nice to chat face ...

    Great place to live at in Christchurch. It is about 10 minutes drive from the city center, which is still recuperating from the 2011 earthquake. The hotel proudly stands at 132 years of age and has a vintage look that gives it a very romantic aura, perfect for honeymooners like us. The lady at the reception was very welcoming and gave us handy tips on where to eat and visit.

    We stayed at Merivale Manor for 2 nights, one day each at the start and end of our roadtrip of the south island. The room during our first night was equipped with a full kitchen, music system and Jacuzzi bath. However, during our return trip, though the room price was only 10NZD less, it was considerable smaller in size and had no Jacuzzi. Hence the reason I gave 4 stars to the hotel. Overall, I would definitely recommend the hotel!
