The camper experience

A travel blog entry by paulandmaria


... the road...eek.

Still, we had no problems and enjoyed
the fact you rarely saw another car. The two areas we didn't enjoy
driving were Auckland and Wellington as the layout seemed overly
complicated and that's where most of the people are. I was not so
confident on the extremely windy up hill bits either, but got better
as we went on, sticking to the speed limits by the kilometre...not
like Paul! A very cool experience that has made us want ...

... Whilst driving around, trying to find a campsite, we stumbled across a local rugby match, and so pulled up to watch. I've missed rugby so much it's insane! After watching for half an hour or so, we decided to move on. Due to not being able to find a camp site, we decided to try and get the ferry across to the South Island tonight. When we arrived, we were informed that there was a ferry due to depart at 8.45, but was a cargo ferry and weren't sure whether there would be space, ...

... money on food. Jen bought a few souvenirs from one of the shops and we headed back to the hostel for dinner and bed!Friday we left Wellington early to head for the Interislander Ferry to the South Island. The ferry was massive and took three hours to get from the north to south island. It made us all feel sick, but we all had food so we ended up surviving fine. Once back on the coach, we headed to Kaiteriteri via Picton and Nelson. We saw the vineyards in which most ...

NZ - Aotearoa the Land of the Long White cloud

A travel blog entry by missywanderlust


... hours sleep brought me back to a world of light blue sky and deep sea blue, with green surrounding hills filled with white furry dots grazing away in the distance and the wind breezing through the high grass along the beach side. The only sounds to hear were the seagulls screaming above the waves of the ocean. Perfection! First encounter of the Kiwi (the people of New Zealand ;) and not to be mistaken with the fruit nor the indigenous bird) was a pleasure. Got invited to ...

Greetings from Wednesday evening (Something all of you east/west coasters have yet to live through)! After arriving in New Zealand and debating whether or not to publicly share the details of my experiences, it has finally reached a point where there is simply too much to tell and I can no longer keep up with emails back home. I have an awful habit of keeping half filled travel journals that end before the trip ...

Genau, was man von einem Westin erwarten würde!


Fantastisches Hotel, wie es die Westins immer sind. Das Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit. In jeder Hinsicht professionell. Schöne Atmosphäre. Kann es nur wärmstens empfehlen ....

Great Westin foundations..but with opening jitters!


I am writing this review out at the airport as I prepare to head back to Sydney from my one week stay in Auckland at the newly opened Westin Lighter Quay. Overall this hotel definitely lives up to the strong Westin brand, with luxurious fittings, funky restaurants and bars, with a very unique position right over (and quite literally on) Auckland Harbour. That being said they are still definitely going through some early stage jitters and that showed throughout the week. Let me go through the 'goods' and the 'bads' for you:

Ausgefallen, aber schön


Das Westin Auckland Leighter Quay ist ein brandneues Hotel in Aucklands Viaduct Stadtviertel, wo Hi-Tech-Firmen wie Sun, Microsoft, Vodafone und viele andere ihre Niederlassungen haben. Es ist etwa 10 Gehminuten von Aucklands Stadtzentrum entfernt und 5 Minuten von den Restaurants am Hafen. Das Hotel hat alle erstklassigen Qualitäten, die man von einem Westin erwarten würde - ein bequemes Bett, herausragendes Personal und eine schöne Umgebung.

Eccentric but nice


The Westin Auckland Lighter Quay is a brand new hotel in Auckland's Viaduct area where hi-tech companies like Sun, Microsoft, Vodafone and many others have their offices. It's about a 10 minute walk from Auckland's town centre and 5 minutes from the city's waterfront restaurant enclave.

Un nuovo inizio ad Auckland con politica non fumatori


Ho trascorso due notti in questo nuovo Westin ad Auckland. Ho potuto fare il check-in molto presto, alle 6 di mattina, e mi hanno anche messo in una camera deluxe. Era tutto all'altezza degli alti standard del gruppo Westin: doccia a pioggia, televisore al plasma, vasca, vista del porto. I quadri dell'albergo sono belli e abbastanza originali, con opere di Maori qua e là. Il lounge executive era bello, i drink erano serviti da un personale molto competente. La colazione continentale non aveva proposte calde. L'albergo non è proprio finito e c'è stata un'evacuazione alle 2.30 del mattino - a quanto pare qualcuno ha fatto saltare l'allarme fumando una sigaretta. Il personale ha offerto coperte e accappatoi a tutti gli ospiti infreddoliti (c'erano 6°) in attesa che i vigili del fuoco ci lasciassero rientrare. Per fortuna, l'albergo ha solo sei piani quindi andare giù per le scale non è stato un problema. La seconda notte ci hanno spostato in una junior suite, un po' più grande ma senza vista dell'oceano. Un albergo piuttosto singolare, ma l'Hilton lì vicino sarebbe la mia scelta (se fosse leggermente migliorato) perché è più vicino ai negozi e alla vita notturna.

Proprio quel che uno si aspetta da un Westin


Albergo fantastico come tutti i Westin. Il personale era gentile e disponibile. Efficiente in ogni modo. Atmosfera bellissima. Altamente raccomandato.

Auckland's best weekend


I just spent the weekend at the Westin in Auckland it delivered on all counts. The room was comfortable and well appointed .. only thing missing was a directory of hotel services in the room .. the bathroom lives up to the "heavenly" promise. Service was excellent throughout the hotel .. The executive lounge was a bit small but service and food served were excellent. The most impressive aspect for me was the fact that the buzz of the bar and restaurant made us want to stay in the hotel rather than venture out into the unknown. I absolutely loved restaurant - it looks stunning at night (too hard to explain the decor!) and the food and service are the perfect balance of relaxed yet 5 star ..

Just what you'd expect from a Westin!


Fantastic hotel, as Westins always are. The staff were friendly and helpful. Efficient in every way. Beautiful ambience. Would highly recommend...

Justo lo que se espera de un Westin


Un hotel fantástico, como todos los Westin. El personal era amable y atento. Eficiente en todos los sentidos. Un ambiente precioso. Lo recomendaría encarecidamente...

Fresh start to Auckland with non smoking policy


I had two nights at this new Westin property in Auckland. I received a very early check in of 6am and was immediately ugraded from a superioe to a deluxe room. Typical high standard Westin amenitiesm rain shower, plasma TV, deep bath, view of harbour. The hotel artwork are nice, and quite unique featuring local Maori works of art here and there. The executive lounge was nice, canapes and drinks served by very attentive staff. Breakfast in morning contential with no hot offering.
