The Riders of Rohan

A travel blog entry by nbinette04


We got up at 7:50am this morning to prepare for our busy tour day. An hour later we were heading out the Laing's door to meet Hasslefree tours outside a nearby hotel. Our driver, Steve, picked us up in a four-wheel drive van, and we headed out of town towards Methven. Along the way, Steve talked to us about the towns and farms we passed through, imparting his own past experiences with the region. We were also able to watch some behind-the-scenes Lord of the Rings featurettes ...

But what was really impressive was the fact that we both managed to get ourselves and all our gear on and off the train in the very short ...

... back in the campervan for an amazing drive through the mountains and huge isolated valleys towards the West Coast and Lake Brunner.

This morning we woke up in a caravan park full of power boats and holiday makers at Lake Brunner, a huge glacial hollow surrounded by mountains. We decided to explore some of the smaller lakes nearby, and found one, Lady Lake, barely visible from the gravel road, which we had completely to ourselves. The water was inky black ...

A few days with the dolphins

A travel blog entry by jonny-and-tara


... We actually got pretty lucky here cause Tara had wanted to book it in advance but i had decided there would be no need, the whole of New Zealand had been pretty quiet while we were there given the tourist season does not really kick off till just before xmas, so i was confident we'd be fine. As it turned out, that Sunday a huge "Celebrity Cruises" cruise ship had pulled into the bay/sound and dumped hundreds of its passengers at this gorgeous little seaside town. ...
