Well we knew that this day was coming for a while but did never prepare us for it! So we decided the best way to go our separate ways was on a full stomach so we went for that last supper or in our case the last breakfast. So after a fine feed we hugged and said goodbye to Emily and Aisling for two ...

Stephens Day, or Boxing Day as they say in New Zealand, arrived upon us, as it often does right after Christmas Day, and we felt we had to bring a little Irishness to the whole day so we selected a Pub Crawl as the main activity of the day.  I can hear the sarcastic gasps of shock and...

As Lorna has said, we left Kaikoura after a sampling of Crayfish and pointed our vehicle in the direction of Chirstchurch, (unfortunately it was a car and not a plane as apparently we are not experienced enough quote unquote, to fly a plane into Christchurch airport - even though - HELLO - we h...

Wellington, the capital (accepted by everyone - not like how everyone is aware that Cork is the real capital of Ireland but we don´t want the influx of tourist´s and politicans and so we "call" Dublin the Capital) is the southern-most city (like Cork) on the Nort...

Nelson

14 December 2006 | Last Update 29 January 2007

Well after a very scenic and smooth crossing form the north island to the south we headed for Nelson on the north west coast. Now Nelson and Napier battle it out in New Zealand for getting the best meaning the hottest weather. Now Nelson did not disappoint us it was lovely and sunny while we were th...

After our rather wet stop we motored on to Rotorua. Now Rotorua is basically on a volcanic belt in New Zealand which is great yeah seeing as the park next to us had its last eruption only back in 2002! Wonderful. Now we arrived very hungry and headed for Mad Dog café a must if you are in...

So we lost Aisling - (by accident!!) and Grainne and myself, after a swift sleep-deprived goodbye and a short plane ride, found ourselves in Christchurch - we had made it to New Zealand!  The sun was shining, and although it was a little on the chilly side (ok it was goddam freezing) ...
