Location: Ferry to South Island, New Zealand

We'd both lokked forward to this crossing since we last here three years ago, and we were not disapointed. It takes three hours + to cross, leaving Wellington, heading out into the Cook Straights before turning into the Queen Charlotte Sounds. Its an amazing trip, with views out into the pacific and channels so narrow we didn't think our ferry would fit through!

We landed in Picton, nothing like Hartlepool, its pretty and inviting and were booked into a backpackers called Tombstone where the guarentee you rest in peace!
