    The bed was comfortable. The spa a bit manky, but we tubbed in it anyway. The open fire was comforting.

    Picturesque mountains

    ... through the valley really were undescribable. The pictures do not even begin to express how spectacular the views were, I felt completely at one with the world whilst within the tranquil landscape and wish I could have stayed there all day. The rough, empty road went on forever through the alpine desert and it was so peaceful that I nearly drifted off to sleep on several occasions. Along the route we stopped off at Tennyson lake for a picnic lunch ...

    ... are like an American water park. The place was packed, thankfully we splurged and got a private pool. I would recommend a private pool for anyone looking to go to hot pools in NZ.

    Thank goodness this was our last night camping. I don't think anyone wanted to sleep in a soggy tent one more night. But it was fun while it lasted. It was sad to know we only had one more day with Ben before he had to fly back home.

    Not long after our lunch stop, we began to see beautiful, snow-capped mountains. It wasn't a very cloudy day, and the ...

    Up really early to load car but Byron and Cody had already left the house at 6.00. We had quick cuppa and were off. Needed to pick up campervan as early as possible to get on the road. We were hoping to do about 600 kilometres today and stay at Hanmer Springs, so we could go to the hot springs and sulphur pools. Clare broke her duck, by driving to Queenstown across The Crown Range of mountains. Usually Byron drives but now Clare can drive it! We ...

    ... Park. Got chucked over the side in Bark Bay and walked the 25km back to the beast. Very, very good.

  • Thursday - bought a GoPro, which may turn out to be a $500 fail. We'll see. Drove to Greymouth via Buller Gorge and the excellent northern west coast (Paparoa National Park). Visited Monteith's Brewery (meh).
  • Friday - drove from Greymouth to Kaikoura via Arthur's Pass. Getting within 100km of Christchurch causes instant ...
