Mar 15, 2007 - Motueka - Day 1

We arrived late afternoon on the 15th in Motueka, a small town of little consequence but a good place to make preparations to get on the Abel Tasman Track. Matt and I were really excited to get on the walk as it is classed as an "easy" walk with outstanding views. We spent some time at the local DOC (department of conservation) trying to understand exactly what we would need to be fully equipped for the walk. Speaking with these guys can be cryptic at best and we were struggling a bit with their instruction. For some reason they treat you,...

Nov 28, 2005 - Abel Tasman National Park (Kaiteriteri)

After arriving at Kaiteriteri campsite we were stunned to find the campsite right on a golden sand beach with the most amazing view and tropical sea. The coast at the top of South Island is fantastic just bay after bay all along the Abel Tasmen park many only being reached by water taxi. We took the trip to visit all the hidden bays, you could stay there forever it was hard to leave as the weather was so perfectas well. What a great place to spend our anniversary.

Nov 19, 2005 - Abel Tasman National Park and Nelson

Set off at 8.00 a.m. to explore Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park. Went to a market in Nelson "huge", we were told. No comment!! but it was very pleasant if a bit arty-farty. Jaz was interested to see Nelson, as she knew people in Gocek (hi Dean, Merrin and Tim) who originally hail from the city. We then drove up the coast to Abel Tasman. This website is going to get boring as everywhere in this country is stunning - just point a camera anywhere and you have a view. Abel Tasman coastline is to die for, and ferociously protected - you...

Di and Jaz On Tour

Apr 13, 2005 - Picton to Abel Tasmen

Sunday - Turned in the rental car and boarded the ferry for Picton. It was a BIG ferry - they loaded dozens of cars, semi trucks and a train! The seas in Cook Straits are rough and we were advised at the terminal not to eat till we were across Cook Straits. We waited and it was smart. Once we got to Queen Charlotte Sound the scenery was gorgeous. Many cool lodges in the sounds that you can only get to on foot or by water taxi. We arrived in Picton - pop 4000 - around 5 PM. Figured we had around an hour to find a room before dark. Picked up...

We Deserve A Break

Mar 31, 2005 - Abel Tasman National Park

Het is 07:00 en ik doe de deuren van de campervan open. Het heeft net nog stevig geregend, maar nu is het droog en komt de zon op, een magnifiek gezicht vanuit bed gezien! Na het ontbijt gaan we naar de receptie en boeken nog een nacht bij, op hetzelfde plekkie, morgen is het nog beter weer en deze camping bevalt ons wel. Vandaag gaan we naar Abel Tasman NP, een van de "weinige" zaken die naar onze ontdekkingsreiziger zijn genoemd. Hier in de buurt het NP, het dorp Tasman, de Tasman Bay, de Tasman Mountains en ik vergat bijna de Tasman Sea...
