      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.

      On Monday afternoon Teresa did her Cadbury tour and I explored Dunedin's Victorian rail station and the harbour before returning to the Cadbury cafe for an amazing hot chocolate and a chocolate weetbix traybake slice. We had to rush off to Oamaru to get to the hostel before reception closed as we hadn't booked. It was quite an easy drive and we got …

      ... Caird. Sure enough, it was a replica of the rowboat Ernest Shackleton and five others used to cross from Antarctica to South Georgia Island. It was a prop from an NZ movie about the crossing and the amazing job Frank Worsley, a Kiwi, did navigating in those rough seas. We can't escape the story.

      ... would make their way to the fence, behind a building. And no word of a lie, one of them would be on watch out. They would stand, wait and watch for ages. Cars would drive past, then as if they knew, they started to jump up and on to the side of the road, where they would stand and wait for a little bit longer. Then after a bit of discussion, one of them would start to walk out, when its safe and he's near to the middle of the road, he would stop and the others would run ...

      On Thursday morning, we got up early and drove for around 3 hours to Oamaru, of course stopping for a coffee on the way! Oamaru is where my mum's boyfriend Peter lives and works.

Unfortunately we didn't see any as it wasn't the right time of day.. they tend to come in in the evenings but we did look at the gift shop and area where you ...
