    Wellington here we come

    February 14, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    We got to about Ohotu before we again took another detour haha. We saw a canyon sign and decided to follow the road which lead us to a massive canyon. We stopped at several places along the canyon and took some photos. A company which you could swing in the canyon we actually closed we thought that may have been because of the eroding we suspect from heavy rain hall. We then continued onto Mangaweka were we decided to follow the canyon and take the scenic root. This road was amazing, we took so many photos over looking all the hills and canyon. This way was taking far to long so we cut across to Cheltenham where we had a quick stop. This town was such a cute town. We continued down Highway 54 to Palmerston North. We had found a free camp on Highway 2 where Amanda called and they said to just rock up at any time. We headed to Woodville where we started taking Highway 2 down South. We got about a kilometer down and the road was closed, so annoying as it was getting dark and the campsite was only about half an hour down the freeway. We had to head back up and around the Palmerston North. We then made our way down Highway 1 to Muhunoa East where we stayed in Kimberley Reserve. It was about 10pm by now and we where hungry by really couldnt feel bothered cooking. Chris had a sandwich and potato chips and Amanda had some hot cross buns lol. Chris also decided to have a hot cross bun with bbq chips which he quite enjoyed. Off to bed it was.Read more
