Well... The rest of May was full of paper writing. Stayed in Dunedin this whole time an handed in 6 crisp essays. I also went to a few hot yoga classes and movies to keep my sanity. I saw Bad Neighbours (with zac efron and Seth Rogan... Pretty hilarious), The Other Woman (Cameron Diaz.. Actually liked her in this one), and X-Men!
... t spot the meteor showers! The crib is in a really great location next to the huge pebble beach and it was great fun driving along it on the quad bikes. In the evening we went to Oamaru to watch the blue penguins come into the colony for the night. We only saw 7, but they were very cute and small (they’re the world’s smallest penguin) as they were spat out of the waves and onto the rocks. We had a delicious platter of smoked salmon, dips ...

... be anyone around. We progressed to the Octagon the central area in town, where it was not all happening. There were some bars with people around, but it was hardly what I would call busy. I had read up about a fish and chip restaurant (or fush and chups as they say in NZ) that was supposed to be good so we checked it out and it was your typical fish and chips restaurant attached to take-away, only there wasn't much take-awaying going on! The bar we ...
This evening we walked to Portobello with Steve & Brigitte and ate at – well, you guessed it – Café 1908! I am hoping that Brigitte will send me photos as she progresses through a project she has undertaken – of creating 52 woodcut prints of Treble Cone.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAberdeen Motel Dunedin
Built into the side of a steep hill it is oddly laid out. Our room was right at the back. Its advantage was it was very quiet, disadvantage was the lack of parking space which was reduced even further by two trailers of logs and assorted rubbish. Maneuvering even a medium sized car was very difficult and mine argued with the pebble dashed wall. The other problem was no working Wifi. As usual for NZ the rooms were clean and tidy.
