Our last days in New Zealand: a lake, a mountain, a dog, an upright bass, and a huge assortment of mushrooms.
After days along the South Island’s east coast, we end up in the mountains, where autumn and winter mix. Then it’s back to the ocean for a return to the North Island.
Recap of five days driving around the South Island, from historic stately homes to sea lions and albatrosses.
A delightful few days in a historic town with creative flair. Also food, penguins, and funny-shaped rocks.
Quake city, garden city, city in transition.
Two sides of New Zealand: from a beachside suburb on the North Island, to an earthquake-damaged city on the South Island.
We visit a seaside village with painted mushrooms on its hill crest, and an island sanctuary with rare birds. Oh and there’s pie and cake.
