Hi Jackie and Dave
II just sounds amazing and I have enjoyed reading the blog and looking at the photographs. Tim would have been distracted by the tractors!
A run through Clumber this morning can't compete. Love Angie xx

Hi, Just checking in again. Glad you weathered (sorry about the pun) storm ok! The travel so far sounds amazing. Some of the views look remarkably like Scotland on an even larger scale but I guess the weather is always going to be a lot warmer even with the rainy days you've had!!
You will be pleased to know forecast here is for colder weather with possible snow next week. Highest temp so far, since you've been gone, (good title for a song) has been around 10!!
The photos are stunning & I especially like the whale tail!!
Hope you continue to enjoy your travels & look forward to hearing more of your epic journey.

Just catching up - It's providing a welcome distraction from revision! The photos are beautiful. Think we need to get planning! Lots of love x x x
You would love it here

Hope you are both ok and that the storm isn't as bad as predicted. It sounds like you could be stuck in Kaikoura for a while.
Hi Jane
The storm wasn’t quite as bad as predicted but tasty enough! Road closures are a problem though - latest is SH1 north will be assessed again on Friday morning. The inland route is open but it’s a long way round and we’ve already come through most of it to get here! We haven’t decided what to do yet but watch this space! We were hoping to spend 3 days in Nelson/Picton area so we’ll have to weigh up the options! Glad you’re enjoying the blog. We’ve been blown away by NZ and I’m sure you will love it too.

All sounds wonderful! No surprises mum's already gone a over t. Glad you've managed to source good beer already (I wouldn't expect any less). Photos do look great too.
Lots of love x x x

Glad you arrived safely. It sounds amazing. Hope Jackie is ok after her fall. Shame about Raffles always disappointing when something like that happens but at least you got to see it close up.
Look forward to following your adventures.
From Denis - Wednesday, 21st February 2018, 15:07 (GMT)
Just checked today to find out if Gita had affected you. Glad to see you've not been threatened by the ex-cyclone, just inconvenienced.
Love the photos.
Hope the rest of trip is as enjoyable as it has been so far.
Take care. D

Looks like everything is going fantastically well, particularly now that you have found some good beer. Looking forward to the RV stories.
Love Russ and Gail.
Will see how that goes today not far to drive but we do have the ferry to Vancouver Island to negotiate. Decided we need a name for the RV suggestions ?
From Gail - Tuesday, 19th May 2015, 17:52 (GMT)
Your last message has really made me laugh. Looks as though your going to have lots of followers on the journey. Enjoy and keep us posted about your adventures.
Name could be lefty.
From Becky - Tuesday, 19th May 2015, 20:10 (GMT)
My suggestions for the RV are 'Thunder Road' or 'Bruce Springspeed and the E Street Van.' B xx
From Rich - Wednesday, 20th May 2015, 13:16 (GMT)
Caron said great "enjoy the whale watching" I think I translated OK it's something on her wish list, not got round to it yet.
Loads of love
