Farewell to the North Island

A travel blog entry by sophiesadler

Ferry from Wellington to the South Island Playing eye spy on the ferry with Kieron Ferries in the afternoon were cancelled because of the wind, we were lucky to get across in the morning! We got dropped off in Nelson and walked to Prince Albert's backpackers hostel which was actually really nice. We stayed in a cute little 4 bed dorm, so cosy that Mie & Nanna decided to take (another) nap! Jazz & I took out a couple of old school bikes that were free ...

Day 160 on route to South Island

A travel blog entry by elliotgamble


... A sense of accomplishment came over me as we left the ferry. One island down, one more to go. We didn't linger in Picton and instead went straight to a town near Abel Tasman. The drive was long and we struggled finding petrol stations but we arrived in one piece. The place where we were staying was the cutest hostel.
