Christchurch, New Zealand

Oct 28 – 30 I arrived in Christchurch around 2pm. Nicky and Kat (the girls I met in Te Anau) said I could stay with them at their place. They weren’t going to be back at their house until around 7, so I had a few hours to kill. I dropped my stuff off at […]

Dunedin, New Zealand

Oct 27 – 28 After a 5 hour hike and a long drive, we arrived in Dunedin around 10am. We were really hungry, super tired, and we had no idea where we were going to find a hostel that would let us in so late. Luckily we found one – The Elm Lodge, a great […]

Papatowai, New Zealand

Oct 25 – 26 The bus ride from Te Anau to Gore was pretty short (only about 1 hr 45 min). It was freezing outside and it was a huge relief when Sam showed up in the car to pick us up. After burning her CDs on a disk, finding some fuel for the stove, […]

Te Anau and Milford Sound, New Zealand

Oct 22 – 25 I got to Te Anau with no clue what I was going to do there. I kinda just felt like I needed to hop on a bus and go someplace new. Te Anau was only an hour or so away from Queenstown and there was an afternoon bus, so it seemed […]

Queenstown, New Zealand

Oct 21 – 22 While walking to the bus stop in Fox, I met a really fun woman named Sam. She complimented me on my packing skills, as she was struggling to carry her backpack, several different bags, and a guitar. It turns out we were both heading to Queenstown, so we talked the entire […]

Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers, New Zealand

Since I’m behind on posting, I’m going to start each post with the actual dates the post is referring to. I also have a few more pictures to add to this post, but the Internet is slow, so I’ll do it later. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Oct 18-20 I couldn’t decide between Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier, […]

Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park, New Zealand

I know I’m a little backed up on my posts, but I’ll get caught up soon. I’ve been meeting people non stop and it’s hard to find a spare few hours to upload pictures and write blog posts. Also, cheap, fast Internet access is hard to come by. OK – enough excuses. This post is […]

Pretty Picton and Sunny Nelson, New Zealand

Oct 9 – 10 In the guidebooks, Picton is described as the marine gateway to the South Island. Anyone who travels from the North Island to the South Island (unless they travel by plane) invariably passes through Picton. Because I had the impression that Picton is merely a passageway to bigger and better things, I […]

Taupo to Wellington, New Zealand

Oct 8 – 9 I left Taupo Wednesday night and got on the 1am bus. I was freezing the entire bus ride and tried to curl up in a ball to sleep. It worked for a little while…but just for a little while. I arrived in Wellington at 7am. I was too tired to compare […]

Auckland to Taupo, New Zealand

A quick note: Uploading pictures is terribly slow. So as not to get behind on my blog posting, I’ll probably just publish the words and add photos as they become available. You can check back on my old posts to see if I’ve added new photos to them. ——————————————————– Oct 6 – 8 Monday morning […]
