Hi there!

I started this blog to let everyone know what an amazing place New Zealand is, not only the famous and popular tourist attractions but the destinations off the beaten track.

We usually have no idea how long it takes to get to a destination as we often say “I wonder what’s down that road”? we usually go and have a look, sometimes towing a reasonably large American toy hauler, towed by an ageing but reliable Landcruiser with two dogs and various ‘toys’ in tow. We have never been disappointed and we never consider ourselves ‘lost’,  it’s just somewhere we haven’t been before.

There are so many amazing places in New Zealand,  not all of them on the main road.

Some of the posts are about places that will take you awhile to get to but the journey is often as good as the destination. Some of the posts are about places close to our home, short walks and beaches around the Otago area, most require a sense of adventure!!!

I hope this will inspire you to find these places and enjoy them as much as we do, we are privileged to live in such a wonderful country and we make the most of it.

If you live in New Zealand and haven’t been to these spots yet, pack the caravan,  camping gear or just a picnic and go and have a look – you will be amazed.

If you aren’t lucky enough to live here but are travelling in NZ,  make time to visit some of these amazing spots, there are some roads that are 4WD only but most can be accessed by car, see the posts for any road conditions you should know about.

Don’t forget your camera and remember – “take only memories (and photos) leave only footprints”

Enjoy our wonderful country and – Have fun!!!!!!!

This is the life!!!
