Another day, another adventure
Cue the guys pulling up in the van for another day on the road. Tunes pumping, sun shining, sunnies on, singing & dancing to the music & enjoying the views. Perfection!  Our first stop was the Te Waikoropupu Springs* (Te Pupu) the clearest spring in the world. It is just 7Km from Takaka & has ...

A Random purchase

Today, completely out of the blue, I booked a SKY DIVE for tomorrow morning! It isn’t something I ever had a strong inclination to do. It was never on my to do list & I always dismissed it as being too expensive. I, maybe wrongly so, find it very self indulgent spending big amounts of money ...

NZ is a small world
Abel Tasman on a rainy gloomy day… I decided to go for a walk on my own & peel myself away from my book for half an hour. I went to the start of the Marahau walk & got immersed in the information boards. Consumed in my own company & the sense of being a ...

Abel Tasman

Abel Tasman

Tomorrow the weather will be the same & all kayaking & activities have been cancelled, but I am optimistic it will improve. Abel Tasman national park is the smallest of New Zealand’s 14 National Parks at 225Km2 & the ...
