Team England Finally Reach Brazil !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! travel blog

Orca & Albatross in Kaikora Bay

Pod of Dusky Dolphins

After 5 nights in a tent staying at picnic sites with no facilities we have finally treated ourselves to 2 nights in a hostel. The added bonus is the hostel has a swimming pool, Sauna & hot tub, as well as free cakes at 5pm everyday and a large video collection - much to Luke's enjoyment!!! We are lapping up the luxury and only made it out today to use the internet. We came to Kaikoura to go and sea whales but have opted instead to go swimming with dolphins. The trip is weather permitting and although the sun has been shinning the trips have been cancelled the last couple of days due to rocky seas - our fingers are crossed though.

Last night we went out for our first drink in a pub since the night we arrived in Kiwiland. We have been very restrained here compared to most other backpackers, but then it is hard to find a pub when ur staying in the middle of nowhere most nights so our detox hasn't been soley out of choice. We are off the Picton to catch the ferry to the North Island tomorrow evening so our jouney around the South Island is coming to a close. We hope it will still be possible for us to camp for free at picnic sites because otherwise lack of funds might force us onto the streets with the local tramps!!!
