Happy Birthday Susie from Akaroa

A travel blog entry by john-and-anne


... back, it was the best thing we've done.

Thank goodness our excursion was cancelled or we'd have missed it. We've taken loads of photos... Think Portmerion meets Gaudi/Hundertwasser plus beautiful flora and fauna. Yummy sandwiches and a lemon and mint drink. We also met almost everyone we've had dinner with!! You can see what we mean if you visit www.thegiantshouse.co.nz

Malaysia and Mindfulness

A travel blog entry by journeyer


... would describe the people. She describes a population that defines itself by its racial and religious orientation and each group lives in a specific locality. The religions may be Muslim, Christian, or the native religion pre-Europeean settlement. I can't remember how many different groups she mentioned, but it seemed like a lot. Fazar continues to say that she doesn’t consider herself Malay, she identifies with her group. The Malay ...

... 7pm and we were aware that the restaurants tended to take last orders by 9pm in these sleepy places. Where we chose was slightly dictated by the fact that we could get wi-fi, so we ate at Bully Hayes. The food was very good indeed and we both chose the fish platter (see photograph) and it was heavenly but very filling. Back at the apartment we watch The Walking Dead (New Zealand have it before the UK) and then bed. We have another full itinerary ...

A Day with the Dolphins

... near the boat. That meant it was time to get in the water. No one wanted to go in first, so I jumped in and lied about how warm the water was (sorry, Holly). As the rest of the group got in, the dolphins swam around and between us. Our guides told us to make noise by tapping our masks against our snorkels, making clicking noises with our mouths, or other silly ways to attract the dolphins. I don't know if that really worked or was just for their amusement. ...

A Beautiful Ghost Town

A travel blog entry by fiandmichael


... City centre is that it is a city in recovery mode. Many a building has been affected by the terrible earthquake which hit a number of years ago, and this has seemed to have an effect on the townsfolk.
