Greymouth gone, Murchison again

A travel blog entry by timreis

Today we spent all day driving through the rain to get to a very grey Greymouth, so called because of the river Grey which flows into the sea at this point on the West coast. The river Grey is so called because it's grey. It's all very simple really. Tomorrow we're going to spend all day driving from Greymouth back to the north east coast (i.e. …

Auckland airport

I walked from the airport to the Kiwi airport hostel. Which was a great idea for the first km, wide pavements stretching out along the side of the road, leading to the state highway. A mirage. Soon those pavements turned into sandy tracks, neatly laid out and surely showing where pavements will appear, but that wasn't much good to me. My pack didn't get any heavier, but the little wheely case did. I carried it a while, dragged it a while, then took a detour onto some ...

... railway station - check the photos, does anyone know a similar one in England? The historic carriages have foot plates where you can get outside to photograph and there is a very good commentary which includes interesting facts such as Christmas Creek was named after a miner discoverers gold in the creek on Christmas Day 1863. The journey takes you along by Taieri river, through tunnels and across viaducts as you wind your way up to the ...
