... t miss the cactus house. The verdant surroundings were really beautiful and we're pleased that we didn't pass through Dunedin without visiting the gardens. Dunedin was settled by Scots and its name means Edinburgh. It was very carefully planned out, sometimes obstinately. This is why Baldwin Street came to be as it is; a straight road was required to take its place in the grid system, even if it that did mean running it up a ridiculous gradient. In the centre of the city is the ...
It is only about a 60 km or so day and the first half is on a road that can best be described as 'rolling'. Gone are the big hill climbs and the tight narrow roads. This is a new(ish) road linking Cromwell to Clyde and the hydroelectric dam there. With this in mind, we are not in any rush to get going, to give the workers a chance to get on the road before us. We also expect the Intercity Bus from Queenstown - at a rough guess - to also be past us. So, at the leisurely time ...

We could see no sign of life anywhere down on the beach and were conscious of ...
I took advantage of Southland's extra long Easter weekend (their anniversary day was moved to the Tuesday) by setting off on a journey of discovery not knowing exactly where I was heading but looking for an adventure. I drove to Wanaka via the Crown Range- at 1000m it’s the highest pass in New Zealand and had a fair few hair pin turns! Apparently there are great views from the pass but unfortunately my eyes didn’t leave the road as the rain ...
