Although it's almost a year since our final days in the South Island, we're keen to finish sharing our memorable adventures in words & images.
During our second week moored in Liverpool, we went to a family wedding in Devon, then explored more of the city together and with a friend.
After a delay of almost two years, due to the pandemic, we cruised into Liverpool's Albert Docks on the afternoon of 11th April 2022.
Narrowboating over a British winter isn't for the fainthearted, but we're used to the ups and downs of it and enjoy the quietness on the cut.
Goodness, we really have had a blogging break! We haven't posted for seven months, as we've had so many other things going on. Our intention has always been to get the remainder of our NZ trip posted, and then keep you up to date with our narrow boating travels. However ... We'd drafted the NZ … Continue reading Seven Months Later And We’re Back …
It's always tricky adjusting to life after being in another hemisphere. We're catching up with family & friends and not doing much blogging ...
Having been back onboard our narrowboat now for almost two weeks, we're able to reflect on how it feels after a year living in New Zealand.
Having travelled eastwards from the west coast to Arthur's Pass Village in February, we subsequently journeyed westwards with friends in May.
Leaving Gisborne on Sunday 1st August, we flew back to the UK on Thursday 5th August. It's an interesting time to be flying that's for sure!
From the 7th to 21st May, we hung around Christchurch with Jamie and visited a number of nearby attractions.
At the end of April we headed to Lake Tekapo, expecting to be blown away by its beauty. Did it live up to our expectations?
After our incredible experience on the Hooker Valley Walk, we explored Mount Cook Village and the Tasman Glacier. How would they compare?
Out of all the adventures and experiences we had in our five months on the South Island, Mount Cook won the Gold Medal. You'll soon see why ...
Waiting for a clear weather window to visit Mount Cook in April, we visited the Waitaki Hydro Power Scheme, Lake Ohau, and the Clay Cliffs.
Our itinerary often alters due to fascinating things we find along the way. Oamaru, Duntroon & The Vanished World were well worth seeing.
Sharing photographs, videos and stories of our precious time in April 2021 with yellow-eyed penguins and the marvellous Moeraki boulders.
We're not all that comfortable in big cities, but Dunedin managed to impress us regardless. Mostly the outstanding Otago Peninsula.
Having planned only two blogs about our adventures in the Catlins, we realised there's so much amazingness three are needed to do it justice.
The second of three posts sharing our April 2021 experiences in the stunning Catlins in the SE corner of NZ's South Island.
We managed to time our adventures to coincide with Rod and Tracy's Catlins long weekend over Easter. Our first three days were unforgettable.
