      ... realise how ignorant I am about the growth and production of this fruit. The vines are grown on trellises similar to grapes but higher off the ground, in small paddocks, completely surrounded by tall hedges on all sides for protection from the elements. The plants have large almost circular leaves and are now in bud, producing abundant sweet smelling flowers. Production is very labour intensive, and I try my first golden kiwi fruit which is ...

      Back on the Bus

      A travel blog entry by cheaperthancall on Jan 26, 2014

      After spending a couple of days in Rotorua it's time to jump back on the bus, this time to head East. The pickup time was a much more reasonable 12.30 so I had a lie in (8.30), checked out and went for a little walk along the lake and to the gardens outside the museum. All very pretty but as reached the gardens it started raining. I took shelter for 5 mins but it didn't look to be dying off so had to venture out ...

      After another hour and a half we made it to Gisborne at around 2.30pm. The campsite is located just by the beach by annoyingly doesn't have as direct access as Orewa did - we have to walk through a public tennis court to get there. It was ...

      ... back out on the pier trying to catch some dinner, unsuccessfully again for me but Lucy reigned in a few little wrigglers but nothing big enough to eat so we relaxed back at the campsite before an early dinner and bed. It had been a lovely relaxing day once again and after a cheeky hour out on the pier in the morning we headed on further southward towards Hawkes Bay, ready to find our next part of the pie. So until then...

      Four of us got up at 06:30 this morning and headed to the beach to see the first sunrise in the world today, very cool thing to do. After sunrise, back to bed for a few extra hours sleep. Around 10 we head to the cafe on the beach and get kitted out in waders so we can head out into the ocean to hand feed stingrays! :) This has been ongoing here for a few years and as soon as we ...
