South Island

Posted by on May 27, 2007

I did the ferry crossing to the South Island today.

WOW

I must have shot almost an entire memory card of photos just in the Queen Charolette Sound on the way in. It must be what an Alaskan cruise is like.

Once again, I’m at a computer terminal at a campsite. I can’t get my photos up. I got in a bit early, so I’m going to go into town and see if I can find a Starbucks where I can use my laptop and upload photos.

I think I’m going to drive to Christchurch tomorrow to buy some warm clothes. I have a lot to say about New Zealand, but I’ll wait until I can get online with my laptop.

I’m in Whangerei, NZ right now at a McDonalds/Internet cafe.

I drove from Routura to Whangerei today via the Tongarori National Park (aka Mount Doom if you saw the Lord of the Rings Movies).

I’ll be in Wellington tommorow and hopefully take the ferry to the south island.

Absolutely beautiful landscape. Amazing. You will love the photos.

So far, I haven’t gotten into an accident driving on the left.
