Fur Seals Meet me on their Turf ...at the Surf

A travel blog entry by bettytarle

Met up with a friend from melbourne, Loiuse, and she showed me the ropes of her hometown. It was Sunday and they pretty much roll up the carpets here still on Sunday. We did walk the Victorian Old Town with it slimestone buildings and galleries and feasted on some really good pizza. It was great to see Louise again, met her Mom and some of the …

The world's rarest and smallest

A travel blog entry by kimrobinson

I shared a dorm with four males last night and two were snorning - all night! So yes, I didn't get much sleep and to top it off ended up waking early when two (French) brothers set their alarm to leave early. But hey I didn't mind ... they were sweet guys and pleasant on the eye! So unable to get back to sleep I just sat in bed and read. …

Little Blue Penguins!

Every evening they penguins gather 200-300 meters off shore in groups called "rafts" and then swim into shore together to get back to their homes (These lucky penguins …

After a brief wander around Dunedin going to see the cathedral and the most beautiful VIctorian railway station I headed north to Oamaru. The weather was pretty dull but the scenery made up for it. Again I took the coastal route and saw loads of seals and the almost spherical Moeraki boulders.
Arrived in Oamaru and followed signs to the …

Penquin Spotting!

The stones lie on the beach, but it was late when we got there and only a few …

    Lucked out at this hostel as there was only me and one other lady in our 4 share. It was great for 2 but might have been small with more. Slept great. Kitchen small too but had some nice picnic tables outside to eat. Very convenient to Botannical Gradens behind...which were VERY nice and short walk to bus station...maybe 10 minutes.
