AbelTasman and Kaikoura

Our journey took us to Kaiteriteri (eat quick) and the Abel Tasman Nat. Park, one of the most beautiful places in the south island, where kayaking, boating and tramping (hiking) are the byword. Then off to the east coast (the Pacific Ocean here) and Kaikoura, the home of various marine mammals who make this area their year-round residence.

Already we have noticed the slower pace of the South Island, and we know that some incredible diversity in geography awaits us still! Tomorrow we head up to Lake Tekapo on our way to Queenstown (the home of extreme sports in NZ.) We will bungee from 100 meters? We will we ride the skywire plane? We will jump out of an airplane? We will we hot air balloon over the Canterbury Plains? Stay tuned for the continuing adventures of PnP on the road!
