    This is a number of bungalows set back from the highway. They are quite quirky, but basic. OK for one night.

    Up early to be picked up at 7.15am for the 8.45am train to Greymouth. The carriages all have large picture windows plus the corners in the roof are also glass. There is also an observation car with no glass. We set off in sunshine but it didn't last and it became windy and rainy the further west we got. The trip one of New Zealand’s (and …

    9 Hours On A Coach

    So after going to bed full of choc pud we were up at the crack of dawn to get a 9 hour bus to Franz Josef. We literally checked out the hostel before it even got light and the storm from the night before was still lingering, so it was raining. Great. With our bags and us wrapped up and strapped up we headed to the bus stop. Surprisingly we weren't too soaked and the drive wasn't too bad. Genuine shock. We stopped off after a few hours for 'morning tea' ...

    We awoke to the sound of the beach at Westport. I checked the beach and decided to try my ankle at some running intervals after a 7 minute total body workout. The intervals were both knackering and exhilarating, warranting the green, unripe banana with my eggs that morning. We departed to Franz Josef, stopping to see the marvellous, scientifically unexplained pancake rocks at ...

    ... about the weather- as it had been ******* down for ten hours and as I'd asked Amanda not to be English predictable and talk about the weather as the Brits do. Anyway it seems that their weather forecasters are are as useless and incapable as their counterparts in England and France. It is the only profession where one can be totally wrong every day of the year and yet never be fired for blatant incompetence. The Romans used to read the entrails ...

    A very scenic drive from Nelson. On the way to Westport we decided to have a go on New Zealand's longest swingbridge which was near Murchinson on the Buller River. It was quite breezy and it was the highest we had crossed so far! It did take a fair bit of willpower on my behalf but after overcoming my reticence I forged on ahead, hoping no one would come my way as it was narrow (one person wide). There was a sign at the start saying 'We encourage people to ...
