We stayed for one night before a very early flight the next morning, but the friendliness of the staff, the comfort of the room, the pool and the bbq were exactly what we needed to relax before heading home. The hotel is very conveniently located between the airport and downtown. The room had everything we needed; a Queen bed, a kitchenette, ensuite bathroom and a microwave and fridge. They also had lots of little notes throughout the room with suggestions on where to eat, how to get around and just plenty of helpful tips. There was a little hiccup when we checked in but the staff proved very professional and fixed everything up for us. It really was no big deal and had no impact on our enjoyment of the place. I would definitely recommend staying here.

We relaxed the rest of the day apart from doing some hand washing and cryovacing. Having a bit of lasagne each tonight with some chips and salad. One of my wine casks is leaking so I will have to keep an eye on ...
... view. We were given umbrellas to use for the short walk to the viewing area looking out over Baron Falls and the hydro electricity facility which provides much of the power for the area. When we returned to the Skyrail the clouds were starting to move in over the hills and part of our journey was through a sea of white where we could not see the carriage in front of us. During the final part of our decent we came out of the clouds to enjoy a great view of Cairns and the surrounding ...
... mushrooms that glowed so bright in the darkness, they could have drawn in moths.
The Australian rain forest is a unique environment--both scary and beautiful at the same time. The country is having problems with invasive species, just as everyone else. When the Europeans sent out to colonize other continents, they brought along with them the plants and animals of home. Little did they know, the introduction of invasive species can be an environmental disaster.
... and hit the road after that. We will have three and a half weeks to travel the South Island and hope to see some nice places, enjoy the food,wine & beer, meet the locals and perhaps walk on the wild side and play in the snow. We will travel our way up the east coast from Christchurch to the top of the island, make our way down on the west coast and enjoy all the bits in between as well. Very much ...
