Art Deco to Travel for

February 7, 20124 Comments

 Art Deco Architecture – New Zealand Style! No trip to New Zealand North Island would be complete for us without a visit to Napier and The Hastings. Napier is world renowned for its art deco architecture, but we visited Hastings first, which also has some great examples of this style of buildings. Getting to Napier […]

Our Wellington ‘Waitangi Weekend’ Welcome

February 5, 20120 Comments

Kia Ora, and what a welcome we received from Wellington, after our ferry crossing from Picton to the North Island of New Zealand. We’re really behind with our travel blog updates, so this is going to be a very quick entry covering quite a few days. The main reason is we’ve both been really busy. […]

Fox Glacier – Helicopter Heaven

February 5, 20123 Comments

Whilst exploring the Fiordland we decided to take in a few glaciers, the most memorable for me being via an unforgettable helicopter ride and more spectacular scenery from New Zealand, but this time with the added bonus of an aerial perspective. The Glacier Journey We arrived in the glaciers after our beautiful road trips ,but alas the weather was […]

Sounds, Doubtful or Milford?

February 2, 20123 Comments

No trip to New Zealand would be complete without a trip to the Sounds,  but which one should you do? Milford Sound is world famous, what is less well known is the trip to Doubtful Sound. We decided that we would try and squeeze in both. We’re glad we did as they’re both different experiences […]

NZ Driving – Milford Road and Crown Range

January 31, 20121 Comment

Te Anau to Milford Our waiting on the weather seems to have paid off.  We’ve enjoyed two glorious days on the road viewing the fiords.  The road trips have been outstanding with some stunning views, challenging roads, a scary tunnel and a bit of strange wildlife. We needed to catch a day up, lost due […]

Tramping in Te Anau

January 28, 20124 Comments

Here Comes the Rain Again The journey to Te Anau from Invercargill should have been a beautiful introduction to the Fjordland National Park, sadly low cloud and near torrential rain kept most of the mountains hidden on our journey to Te Anau.  It is as if New Zealand want to tease us with its beauty and only […]

Invercargill, Riverton and Colac Bay

January 26, 20120 Comments

We left Curio Bay with a heavy heart.  That place was quite magical to us; we felt we connected with nature and have some wonderful memories of the penguins and the dolphins, but we have a lot of New Zealand left to see.  The next part of our journey would take us from the Catlins […]

Curio Bay & Porpoise Bay, NZ

January 24, 20123 Comments

A REAL Wildlife Haven Curio Bay is a must stop destination for anybody visiting New Zealand.  To get there you travel on the Southern Scenic Route highway most of the journey, which is a stunning experience in itself and then it’s a short but worthwhile detour off this road to the coast.  Summer is an […]
