    On way to Kaikura stopped at small town of Rotherham for tea and cake!! Met the owner Moira from Glasgow who recommended staying at Donegal Hotel outside Kaikura. The family home to the Boyd's from Donegal since 1860,s It was a farm now a hotel and campsite.typical white Irish cottage 6 acres of beautiful gardens and non stop Dubliners etc.Had a drink with the owners partner after signing in then off to discover Kaikoura. Not very interesting place touristy. Had been hit by an earthquake 2 years ago but didn't see any signs. Had dinner in local pub trying to find wi fi that worked. Returned to campsite and after having a large cider even though there was draught Guinness on tap and listened to non stop pogues decided to go to bed as early startRead more

    Dolphins and whales

    February 10 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Early start 7am to get out on first boat. Really professional group run by Maoiri people.We saw our first whale after 10 mins just the back above the water then it dived and we had fantastic view of its tail.🐋🐋 These sperm whales dive to eat for between 45 and 60 mins then resurface. We sailed around for an hour then it came up again. We were lucky to see it dive again . On the way back we were surrounded by Hector's dolphins 🐬🐬🐬.These are rare. They are very small and playful. They followed us back to shore all around the boat. I managed to get some good video .after lunch we went to the headland to see the fur seals.We decided to head north as the town itself was too touristy.Read more

    Wine tasting in Blenheim.

    February 11 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Having left Kaikoura we travelled north looking for somewhere to camp We came across Marfells Bay which had awful reviews but it was getting late so we chanced it. Whoever did the review was either in the wrong place or was used to 5 star living!! 🤔🤔There were plenty of sites clean toilets cold showers and a beautiful beach..what's to complain about .We set off to Blenheim passing acres of vineyards.What a change from mountains and lakes .In Blenheim we got a list of vineyards that you can visit. The railway station is still operating but the station house is a wine bar /cafe with the biggest collection of wines . We went to the Lost Valley vineyard and had an interesting time there. We tried a few wines but it was a shame to spit it out😱😱😱😱.We then drove on to stay in Motueka the main town in the Abel Tasman area .We stayed with Don who is part of the Sunrise campervan family. He runs a site alongside the river with an organic vegetable garden.He has done just about everything and has a huge knowledge of travel in NZ .After a long info session and a few wines our plans for tomorrow we're setRead more

    March 8 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    Wir waren 2 Tage in Wellington der Hauptstadt von Neuseeland🌁... Leider haben wir Momentan nicht gerade gutes Wetter☔🌧️, trotzdem hatten wir ein paar schöne Tage. Wirklich ein herziges Städtli hat uns gefallen😍, besonders die berühmte Cuba Street.

    Wir waren im Te Papa Nationalmuseum🤓. Am besten gefallen hat uns die Darstellung des 1.Weltkrieges wie Neuseeland mitgewirkt hat... Es wurde sehr eindrücklich dargestellt mit riesigen Lebensechten Wachsfiguren und detailgetreuen Schlachtszenen🤺.

    In einem kleinen Mexikanischen Restaurant🇲🇽 verbrachten wir einen tollen Abend mit sehr feinem Essen🥙 und dem ein oder anderen Mochito🍹😜.

    Heute bevor es mit der Fähre zur Südinsel geht, waren wir noch in den Weta Workshops. Das ist die Firma die viele spezialefekte in einigen Fantasy Filmen🎥 macht. Zum Beispiel die Masken für die Orks im Herr der Ringe oder die Füsse von den Hobbits, Waffen⚔️🔫 und ganze Filmsets. Wirklich cool hinter die Kulissen zu schauen. (Man durfte die meisten Sachen nicht fotografieren oder anfassen)

    Ach übrigens vom Erdbeben🌋 haben wir nichts gemerkt
