NZ (7 ) 纽西兰

Already one week in New Zealand - the 7th day.

We said goodbye to our friendly and gracious hosts Jane and Dave and the comfortable log cabin (above) at about 10:00pm for Dunedin, a city in the East coast of South Island. It was a journey of about 220 km.

It was raining, windy and a little bit cold and gloomy. We past t
hrough many small towns, one of them is Gore, a beautiful and quiet town. We have coffee at one of the cafe to enjoy the fresh and cool air and quietness of the town. It was 5 degree C.

Arrived Dunedin at about 4:00pm. Dunedin is a coastal city famous for Penguin watching and Albatross conservation.

We drove along the Otago Peninsular, which was opposite the city of Dunedin for accommodation.

We found a nice B&B place and dropped in to inquire. This was the beginning of our good fortune.

Jenny and Bruce, the hosts, are friendly, the place are fantastic, cosy and comfortable. (two rooms + breakfast at NZ 200.00)

Their son-in-law Chris just caught a Trout this afternoon.... we requested them to cook for us dinner.... they happily obligated. Later we learned that Chris was formerly a pro-Chef in a restaurant, now he is doing freelance catering.

The dinner of roast Trout and BBQ Trout were fantastic.....and delicious!

This evening, we have the opportunity to see Albatrosses (flying in the sky), seals at the Fort Taiaroa (the tip of Otago Peninsular) and penguins coming home from hunting after dark.


离开了友善的小酒店注入夫妇,我们将前往在东岸的 Dunedin,全程大约220公里。

今早下雨,天气有点冷,并且显得阴沉沉的。不过我们轻松的驾驶,沿途经过好多美丽的小镇,其中一个叫 Gore 。我们停下来,喝咖啡,欣赏当地的有效气息,及美丽的市景。

我们住进了一家环境优美的『床及早餐家庭式小酒店』 (B&B).
