Off the beaten track

A travel blog entry by srwinterburn


On Tuesday morning I joined the Stray bus company to start travelling around New Zealand. Stray's tag line is 'taking you further off the beaten track' and it has certainly done that! This week, though we have visited some of the towns the only time I have stayed in a hostel in town, rather than in the middle of no where was when I hopped off the bus to stay in Rotorua for an extra couple of days. We have been to some ...

The Rainy Day Contingency Plan

A travel blog entry by handytravels

But alas, all good things come to an end ... ...

A travel blog entry by costin

We had a whale of a time just walking round, the frankly deserted, town searching for more puns.
