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.

... left down had a no left turn sign. We have been doing to whole trip using only paper maps, the good old fashioned way! We eventually got out of the centre of town and headed into the windy hilly (very windy and hilly) streets of the suburbs looking for our caravan park. The petrol gauge was teetering just below E (we couldn't find a petrol station either), we were very low on petrol now and we still didn't quite know where we were ...
Once again James Cook was in Dunedin (well the area of Dunedin) in early 1770. Much later in 1848 The Lay Association of the Free Church of Scotland founded Dunedin (with the help of Thomas Burns, Robert Burns's nephew) as the principal town of its Scottish settlement (after the 1843 split of the Scottish church).

... overall look of Dunedin. I appreciate there's dodgy areas in most cities but this was dire. There was so much rubbish and debris from the night before, broken glass was everywhere and general junk from where people had had predrink parties. I felt so old last night because everyone was a student and acting outrageously. I miss it. We decided to go back to the main road to find something to eat for lunch but there were no proper restaurants that didn't serve just fast ...
... just forgotten about the washing and didn"t drove off.... but that's what happened.
Late at night, when we had already pulled over to rest, it popped up in my mind - there was something we left in Dunedin...damn!!! Our clothes!!!
So the next day we got up in time to drive all the way back to the city, grab the laundry, as well as a cup of coffee and went straight on.
Finally at 10.30 in the morning ...
... gone fishing...still it was enjoyable, and I was surprised how big the local fur seals seem to be. Next stop was at the end of the road...The Royal Albatross Colony. Our guide proved to be very engaging and gave us a handy lecture prior to our trip up to the hide..a large glass box set in the hill. We were lucky...the wind was up and there were several birds in the air, as well as a number sitting on chicks. Till you see these avian marvels you cannot appreciate ...
