Die Catlins - Teil 2

Bei Regen aufgewacht, ging es heute pünktlich zur Abfahrt bei größtenteils sonnigem Wetter weiter durch die Catlins bis Dunedin. Vorbei an den Purakanui Falls, entlang der Pounawea Bay, durch den Tunnel Hill, einen von Hand gegrabenen, 250 m langen inzwischen stillgelegten...

Ice hockey

Such rubbish weather again today. Definitely does not feel like Summer at all. We left Kaka Point this morning and went to Dunedin. We found out that Aston was playing his final game of Ice Hockey in an international tournament, so we decided we would go see him, neither of us having seen...

Incredible Gorge

We spent most of Valentine's Day on a train which took us through the Taieri Gorge. This is a very old railway that is now privately owned and is used only for tourists going through the gorge. It was built by hand in the late 1800's and has about a dozen tunnels through mountains. It is...

The most Scottish town outside Scotland... and penguins!

The journey to Dunedin is pretty spectacular - river gorges, valleys, and land stretching to the horizon of mountains, almost uninhabited except for white buildings dotted here and there. Dunedin is billed as the most Scottish city outside of Scotland - Dunedin is actually Gaelic for...

Gorgeous gorges and precarious houses

Day - 15 Wednesday 6th May 2009 Still raining this morning, but Wilderness were thoughtful enough to equip the motorhome with a decent sized umbrella, so not too much of a problem. A nice feature of this campsite is that the picnic table adjacent to our site is rather fun: A short walk...

Onwards...

So I caught the bus down to Dunedin today and had half a day there. Which was about a quarter of a day more than I needed. Admittedly it just rained for the whole time I was there which didn't improve my image of the town. But even with good weather it would still be a bit of a dreary provincial...

Saying Goodbye

Well this is it. The week I never thought would come has come. The week of goodbyes. The week of reflection, of tears, memories, craziness, last-minute "I love you's" and "wish I could have known you better's," and everything and anything in between. I never thought it would come. It's like...
