    ... a lot of concentration so please do not chat to me but feel free to watch’ – opps!

    ... we filled up with petrol. It already costs the equivalent of 90p a litre and he managed to save an extra 5p!
    Nelson Airport is very small....and so are he planes.
    It will only take us 20 minutes to fly to Wellington. It took nearly 4 hours to get here on the ferry from North Island on our way here. So it is goodbye South Island. We have really enjoyed our time here..and we have seen some wondrous ...
