Gra Nomad Wanderings

Sorry no pix as yet.

Here on Sth Island for 10 days. Already having a great time but don't expect we'll ski although we are staying at Wanaka which is a ski resort town.... bit like Jindabyne in NSW.

The hedges are unreal as we drove out of Christchurch. HUGE trees planted together and then trimmed.... they become a GIANT HEDGE! Unreal. Toyota Starlet with 106,000 km on it is going well. Certainly quite small and I couldn't see either of my brothers in it!

Moeraki Boulders were impressive. Also impressive was when Fay took a photo of me with some of the boulders.... I had my back to the waves as one rolled in.... oops.... sorry about the runners!!!

Bit cold and wet today. Got on internet and within 5 mins Peta had emailed me some Aussie phone numbers. Others I'd looked up on white pages Aust. Yes, Brendan was right.... shoulda brought mobile phone just because it has list of heaps of phone numbers in it!!

Will be off to Queenstown and Haast over the next couple of days we expect. Then we go to Lake Tekapo for a sleep before heading back to Christchurch.

Not as many older English vehicles as they used to have here in NZ. A few models we don't have.

No more news folks. Hope that damn snake is enjoying the quietness of this period.

Hey Keasty, I stayed at Te Wanaka Lodge when I was there, up behind the mainstreet. We skied at Cardrona, you have to do it at leats for a day. Great skiing and completely different from Oz. Wanaka is a beautiful little town, I loved the lake and surrounding mountains. Try the Rugby Golf. Interesting!!!!
