After a rude welcome by unusually naive & incompetent immigration & customs officials (even by downunder standards),
this time even surpassing good old England, which traditionally has had the rudest & least intelligent staff,
we arrive in....
The Otago peninsula
Still frigid !
A cold & rainy version of northshore Molokai, SUBLIME !
The road to Queenstown
A very remote waterfall
The west coast
Endless roads through fern forests
Found my favorite winery, Cloudy Bay.
Kayaking the sounds
Some potential dive spots,
in the Coromandel peninsula.
That's your Kauripine, Steve. 15' in diameter !!!
The weirdest sand in the world is found on beaches west of Auckland.
Drove 10.000 km on the wrong side of the road !!!
Back in Auckland.
Fine Auckland neighbourhood &
center of town in charming Wanganui.
An excellent evening at the beach house !
On the way to Wellington.
Back at Hookah falls.
A few months later
Up the needle again.
