Nelson area

2 November 2018

After the ferry on Sunday October 14, I spent two days around Nelson. Then a day in the Golden Bay after the Abel Tasman Track. Cullen Point On the road between Picton and Nelson I stopped at Cullen Point. A short walk of one hour. Not bad in the forest but from time to time a small thinning between the branches allowed to have a nice view. I advise you to stop there only if you really have the time,…

I probably would not have time to come back after … After the escape room organized by my collegues on the occasion of my leaving I drove directly to Whitianga. Well, almost,…

In New Zealand, winter starts on June 1st (not at the solstice) and lasts until the end of August. I spent this winter 2018 working in Auckland, not the most fun 🙄. Weather in New Zealand Auckland (and overall north island) The Auckland winter is not very cold … But rather very rainy!

During my preparation of my weekend I was thinking of doing a road trip around Christchurch for 4 days. And then I finally took a appointment for a new tattoo, incorrigible!
