A new adventure! This time in New Zealand. We decided to turn the Easter break into a 10 day south island adventure.
Today was the manic start. Work lke crazy, then home to pack the car. This was no mean feat on my own, and of course the sun came out to play. It was at least 25 degrees in our driveway. Still 29mins later (my estimate had been 30mins, so I was pretty chuffed!), I was outside the Taxman Rugby Union to collect Pete. Away!
The 4 hr drive to Hanmer Springs is always a delight. The scenario for pretty much the whole way is stunning. Shame that the last 30mins was pretty hard- wind and darkness proving a tad tiring. Still made it safely, with normal life left behind.
A nice homemade platter and beers at our digs. Perfect set-up to our adventure!
