Mud, Sweat, (sunshine), and tears

Since I’ve been in New Zealand, I’ve basically thrown myself into everything and anything. This weekend wasn’t as expection.

Yesterday, I finally went around the peninsula to Akaroa. It has been ‘on my list’ since I got here, mainly as my patents had been there and I was in awe of the photos. I was meant to go back in the summer (February) but the weather wasn’t the best. It wasn’t the greatest when…

Dunedin, Otago

Another week and another little side trip to some far flung area of New Zealand – Dunedin! 5pm on Friday, after a hectic week at work, I left (on time!) and got on an intercity bus to Dunedin, which only cost about $50 return. I don’t mind the intercity buses, they are warm and comfy, and it wasn’t…
