We looked at each other and said, “Let’s get the heck out of here,” so that’s what we did. However, traffic was really thick, and many of the roads were flooded. We spent at least an hour …

Here we are in Dunedin - the Scottish capital of NZ! It has the country's only castle, yet another train journey and lots of wildlife! We're still hoping to see a live possum (we've seen hundreds of dead ones on the road - they're known as 'squashums' or New Zealand's natural speed bumps here!) Our first evening was spent waiting at dusk on a …

Albatrosses, Penguins, and, Oh, More Car Problems

A travel blog entry by cbyung


We had planned to leave Te Anau early on Monday, hoping to get to Dunedin in the afternoon so that we could catch a wildlife tour. As we got to our car, the front driver's side tire was completely flat. With the help of a tour bus driver, we put the spare tire on. When we took the tire off, we noticed that the inside tread was completely worn down …

After a very late lunch we went for a walk on the beach and enjoyed the rare sunshine we had that day. Spent the rest of the day playing games (cards and charades) before heading to bed.

    This place had everything! Great fixtures, very modern and functional. For those who appreciate a good shower, you will be pleased. The only minor complaint is that there were no movie channels. That seems to be common in NZ.

    The hosts were wonderful too, providing a lot of information about Dunedin and areas we were due to travel. If you need to stay in Dunedin, definitely try the Palms Motel.
