Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 15

Woke to grey skies, but no rain so we headed off to Zealandia EcoSanctuary¬†, I know it is vitally important the work they do protecting native lizards and birds here, however, we actually found it a little boring. SORRY. The rare birds, while we spotted a few (Tui and Takahe) in the distance or hidden,…

Share Your World – 22nd March 2019

I am falling a bit behind this week, I plead illness, which means I probably have more time on my hands, but I have either been sleeping of binge-watching Netflix (watched all of The Order), and some movies. Just cannot seem to be able to concentrate, yesterday and today have been a bit better, so…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 14

Woke this morning to grey skies and drizzle, a good day to stay inside, but you do what you have to do while on holiday. Thankfully a very helpful lady at iSite (Tourism Office) managed to find us two tickets to the Weta Basic Studio tour, which we were very happy to have. We drove…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 2

We woke early, eager to be off on our adventures, our first stop was Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill, so named for the lone tree that used to be on top, now removed due to concerns with public safety (why do they do that?). It is a big climb, rather steep. For some silly…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 1

The first and the last day of most overseas adventures are often not very exciting – This post, sadly for some of you, won’t be much different – we spent most of the day getting from Point A to Point B, but still, our journey would not be complete without it. Day 1 We left…
