Chewing through the kms

The crossing from the north to south islands was stunning…

Like proper life-affirming slightly-teary stunning.

So far our visit to the South Island has been mainly spent in the van as we burn through the huge distances here. I don’t know why, but I always thought NZ was about the size of the UK, but as it turns out it is actually pretty massive. We allocated 3 days of driving to get down to the south, and even that will be pushing it. Still, the roads are good and the scenery is lovely (all my pics are on the camera, but hopefully Donny will post some).

Today the weather is fairly awful so we are just zooming down the west coast, and will soon be in the Southern Alps. Exciting!

  1. Hi Chris,
    My name is Katarina and I am a final year journalism student at City University London in Islington. I am doing my dissertation in the form of a TV news package about same sex marriage in Islington, and whilst doing some research I found this blog and found it fascinating. I was wondering if I could perhaps interview you and Donny for my project? I would appreciate it very much. I apologise for contacting you through the blog I couldn’t find another method of contacting you! I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,
    Katarina
