    What a busy last few days we have had! We started our kiwi experience on Friday 14th February and have already seen so much! Our first driver, Scottie, was a little crazy! We got picked up bright and early and drove down to Kaikoura, town famous for whale and dolphin watching. As we are returning here we thought we would get people's feedback on …

    ... that destroyed the city and killed 185 people. There are parts that are still inaccessible as it still experiences daily earthquakes (mostly minor) but it is trying to renovate itself and have a different vibe to before.

    When we reached Picton it turned out our ferry was delayed.. we had made the earlier one we had intended to though which was lucky.. as if we had not.. then the later one was apparently even more delayed which means we would have missed the beautiful scenery on the 3 hour or so crossing to Wellington.

    Finally we were on it though.. we had some chips and a cake and we (my mother and I) rushed to the front to get a good view for ...
