Our short weekend away in Golden Bay was overthrown by a mass stranding of Pilot whales; but we still managed to fit in a whole heap of fun things either side of being Superheroes!
We had ourselves a little holiday in Christchurch to celebrate a friends 30th birthday, and stopped off at Hanmer Springs along the way for a little bit of relaxation: smelly AND soothing.
Part 4 of my South Island roadie. Read all about my concluding days with friends as we visited some of New Zealand's most visited destinations.
I got back into explorer mode and found myself climbing Mount Arthur, situated in the Kahurangi National Park, before exploring part of the Abel Tasman Coastal Track. Just call me Captain 'Kirsty' Cook...
Part 3 of my spectacular road trip around the South Island, featuring: Oamaru, Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki and Mount Cook.
I spent a day cycling around Rabbit Island in an attempt to become more 'outdoor-sy', before relaxing at Furneaux Lodge in the luscious Marlborough Sounds. My weekend almost sounds sophisticated, doesn't it?
Japan is one of those countries that Westerner's are desperate to visit, just to see if it's as quirky as we've been made to believe it is. And it actually is... Cue my post on my seven day stint in this wonderfully unique country.
Located at the north of the South Island, Motueka is just a step away from the stunning Abel Tasman National Park and it's gorgeous beaches, making it the perfect place to set up camp for a few months.
Part 2 of the road trip of all road trips... this time we explored the baron city of Invercargill, the beautiful but windy coast of the Catlins and the playground that is Dunedin.
Claimed as the eighth wonder of the world, I visited Milford Sound to see if the 'word on the street' was true. Is it really as beautiful as people say? Is it worth paying out to see? And is Doubtful Sound worth having a look at too? Have a read of my post to find out more.
