    Devonport

    December 12, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Our last day in Auckland and New Zealand! Before flying to Singapore we went to Devonport, a nice village with a lovely harbour, playground and centre. When we were at the playground we saw a cute toddler who followed us and was sad when we left. After ice cream we headed to the airport.Read more

    You picked the best time to travel. Outside of the tourist season, it looks like you got all these beautiful places all to yourselves! You've certainly made some amazing family memories these past few weeks.x

    Auckland City

    December 11, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    On the second to last day in New Zealand we took the ferry from Birkenhead, where we were staying, to the centre of Auckland. We went to the sky tower. There were three different platforms, all of them staggeringly high. I frightened my parents by standing on the glass floors - they are both very scared of heights and didn't cope well with this.Read more

    Birkenhead... Auckland

    December 10, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    This is Birkenhead in Auckland, where we stayed after our campervan experience. It was beautiful. The house had amazing views onto the harbour and Auckland city.

    That Birkenhead looks prettier than my home town of the same name! Regards to you all, have fun! John S (Pensby Runners).

    Rakaia Huts

    December 9, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We went to Rakaia huts on the last day of having our campervan. We met a girl from the Netherlands called Eva there, a nearly four-year old, who followed me and Jonah everywhere, but wasn't so keen on Lewis. The beach was very stony and difficult to walk on, but the water was an amazing turquoise colour. It seemed almost fake.Read more

    Nativity on the beach!

    December 7, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Dad set us a challenge, to build a nativity scene on the beach with natural sources. This is what we managed.

    Ah lovely! I think Mary and Joseph will be feeling more at home in the sand rather than the snow! Very artistic xxx

    Waikouaiti, New Zealand

    December 6, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    After spending most of the day in Dunedin, we settled down for two nights in Waikouaiti. It was very close to a surfing beach where the waves were quite scary because they were so high. On the first evening there we just went down to look at the beach. It was quite beautiful. The second day we dared to go body boarding in the sea. It was very cold!Read more

    Dunedin, New Zealand

    December 6, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We left the hippie campsite and headed for Dunedin where we started to have a look around. It had a lot of tall buildings. We went to a veggie cafe to eat and then went to look at the famous railway station. It was quite remarkable for a station. Then, after that, we went to see the Cadbury chocolate factory (from the outside!). It was really cool. After a long day we went to another campsite next to a lovely beach.Read more

    Wild beaches

    December 6, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    On Thursday we stayed at a campsite for the night. You wouldn't call it a proper campsite. I think you would call it more of a hippie campsite. It was right next to a beach with choppy waters and flying sand. On the second day, after spending a night there, we went back to the beach and made a den out of sticks . It was also a really nice day, which made us very happy!Read more

    Love the coats! Looking cool ( and warm...)!!! XX Susie

    Campsite for the night

    December 5, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    After staying in Queenstown, we continued our journey and travelled to a campsite near Dunedin. It was right next to a beach. In the evening, Jonah and Dad went down to the beach and came back telling us that they had made something on the beach. It was an alien with seaweed as hair! The next morning we went to the beach again and made a den. It was so cool!Read more

    I hope that tent frame had a cover! Have a great time!

    Butcher's Dam

    December 5, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    We stopped here for a picnic on the way to our next campsite. Then mum and dad suggested to go up Flat Top Hill, next to Butcher's Dam. It was quite nice really, but also quite hard getting to the top.Read more
