Plans for spring break – Kiwi-style!

I know that I’m long overdue for a post – I have two separate drafts of two different topics saved, and just haven’t gotten around to posting them – MY B! I did promise to post something before I left for break, though, SOOO…

Here are my, Kelsie’s, and Brandi’s plans for the rest of our mid-trimester break, in a totally non-detailed itinerary sort of format:

August 24:

  • Bluebridge Ferry leaves Wellington at 8:00 a.m. (I gotta get up around 5:30 to make this happen. FML.)
  • Pick up rental car from Picton, drive 2ish hours south along the east coast to Kaikoura.
  • Walk the Peninsula Walkway; See the Maori Leap Cave.

August 25:

  • Christchurch
  • See what’s left of the city center.
  • Christchurch art festival – “Earth from Above”

August 26:

  • Oamaru
  • Blue Penguin colony nighttime tour.
  • Oamaru Gardens

August 27 & 28:

  • Queenstown!
  • Kelsie’s birthday bungy! At Nevis Bungy! Followed by a night out in Queenstown in celebration.
  • Brandi & I partake in our own adventure activities, more on this later.

August 29:

  • Franz Josef Glacier
  • Tramp the glaciers, take in some serious beauty.

August 30 & 31:

  • Abel Tasman National Park
  • Tramping, chilling, hot tubbing, more chilling, maybe some kayaking thrown in.

September 1:

  • Journey back to Picton through Nelson, where Brandi will get her tattoo!
  • Arrive back in Wellington around 11 p.m.

And that’s all I’m giving you for now! Bed time! Pictures and stories to come when I get back!
