      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 …

      Wheels, seals and thrills!

      ... Kean Seal Colony where we were lucky enough to see a seal perched on a rock before we walked up to the lookout point.

      Kaikoura means eat crayfish in Maori and that is exactly what we did as we stopped by the famous seafood BBQ and had freshly cooked scallops, mussels and crayfish/lobster!

      Returning to the campsite, we picked our pitch for the night which sits right on the beach with a view of the sea, watching the sun go down and stars come out.

      The next campsite was a couple of hours away from the first. It was cool because it was like a mini
      island surrounded by water. It ...

      ... when I next get the chance. Once I got back to my hostel after the surf lesson I was pretty shattered; my arms were worn out from all the paddling and bruises had come out good and proper on my legs, so I sat in the sun for the rest of the afternoon. It was a welcome time of relaxation after a fairly busy few days. I am now leaving Kaikoura after three nights here to get a bus back to Christchurch, where I'm staying for 1 night. For a small town, Kaikoura packs a punch. Some ...

      Today was another really hot day in Kaikoura. When I was having breakfast I bumped into Kim who I met on the Milford Sound trip! So Martha and I joined her and some of the other passengers from the Stray bus and went for tea and cake at the cafe next door. Then we wandered into town for postcards and souvenirs. We spent the afternoon at the beach and even saw some seals and a whale playing out in the waves. We couldn't stay out for more than a few hours as it grew too hot, so ...
