View World tour 2012-2014 on fkrebs's travel map.
Dunedin is the first New Zealand town, which also leaves the impression of a being a city. Although it does not feel like 120,000 people, but at least there is an intact city center, in contrast to Christchurch.
In addition to a tour around the city, with views of the beautiful train station, churches and the steepest street in the world, we again were captivated by the free WIFI access in the library which kept us there for many hours, as regular blog updates take much time.
The next morning we leave Dunedin, of course not without another drive around the Otago Peninsula. The views here are definitely worth a 2-hour delay.
Moreover the way to Invercargill, the southernmost city in New Zealand, has many beautiful corners. First, we choose to enjoy the views from the lighthouse at “Nugget Point”, where we take some nice photos, which I can well imagine as posters.
Following are once again waterfalls, first the Matai and the Horseshoe Falls, then the McLean falls, before it is soon 9 o’clock in the evening when we arrive at the Curio Bay Campground, where we are situated on a headland. Here we go for another one of our already obligatory steak nights with red wine (this time with T-Bone and Porterhouse steaks).
As always you can read this article with even more photos on my travel blog.
