      We left Queenstown and headed to Dunedin, a fairly quiet drive with not many stops apart from a big hydro electric dam at Clyde.

The drive to Christchurch looked slightly different to the drive into Banks Peninsular when we were driving through the clouds! We ...

      Today was a very sad day. :[ I left New Zealand today. My time here has been amazing. I am so in love with this place it's crazy. I love the landscape, the people and the culture.

      Our steaks went down a treat, nom nom nom. What a great way to end another prefect day.
      We've had near prefect weather all day everyday. Great accommodation and friendly service everywhere. Wonderful people to chat too. Delicious food and most of all picture PERFECT scenery. We love NZ!!!

      1 more day and we're out of here... Doh!!!
