My first car-driving experience is not very spectacular. I decided to leave Christchurh a.s.a.p. (ugly town, I have already spent too much of my life in there during my two visits to NZ). And I drove 5 hours down to Dunedin. Now there’s a town that has something going for it, for as far as that is relevant in a country where you really want to avoid all cities and enjoy the real scenery. But Dunedin was in on the way to my next real destination: the Otago Central Rail Trail.
Incidentaly, my backpackers is called Hogwarts. I kid you not. But other than that it is an excelent stay (even though Funky Green’s rules unchallenged). The view from my 4 bed dorm is crazy, I have never had a cheap room with better view than this.
I’ll add photo’s when I have found a decent Internet place, this PC belongs in a museum.
