We set off from Nelson on a lovely sunny Saturday morning. As usual the scenery changed regularly, sometimes flat farmland,then climbing for ever through trees on more winding roads. We passed cyclists and felt sorry for them when we saw how much of a relentless climb they had ahead of them. At one hilltop viewpoint we chatted to a young man …

This led to Cathy making a very tasty chicken stir fry...we've discovered that Top 10 Caravan Parks all have very well equipped kitchens available for use - this one even included a rice cooker. Great to have a home made, hot meal...and much cheaper than dining out, which is just as expensive here as it was in Australia.

We will soon reach some Franz Josef glacier where we hope to do a helihike - a helicopter ride and then hike on the ice! It's crazy to think we're only just over halfway on our whole trip! We've been to six and half countries and done so much! Although we've only got one and a half more countries to visit we've got plenty more still left to ...
