We had yet another stay at this Luxury four bedroom Bungalow which has all the facilities required and fantastic views which are spectacular. The night time views show the milky way and the area is breathtaking. A 5 Star accommodation which we would recommend to any one, unbeatable value for money. Faultless.

However, upon our arrival at our DOC campsite for the night, it would not be a character from lord of the rings that would greet us, but a dead ringer for Rick Grimes from the walking dead. Like a true sheriff, Rick kept us on the straight and narrow, and ensured that we paid ...

Spotted a penguin on a hill and a bunch of sand dunes (also dangerous for the things that live in them).
My adventure education prof mentioned the other day that New Zealand is a very long and thin island. No matter where you are, you are usually close to a mountain or a beach. Very true. Beaches everywhere. There are so many things to explore and I feel like I haven't done enough.
This marks 2 months that I've been ...
