  • Day 102: Where to stay?Our plan had been to stay another night at Quentin's cousins' place.

  • Day 99: Of goldfish and axolotlsJust like the night before when the sea was too rough to see the penguins, it was still too rough in the morning to feed stingrays :( On the upside that meant we didn't need to be up by 6 Posted by An.Ke in Antje is out of the office. | Dec 28, 2015
  • Day 98: One of the familyI booked a 4-day trip out to the very east of the northern island.

  • Day 94: Whale watchingGot woken up at 7.30 by the most annoying alarm ever!

  • Day 93: Swimming with dolphins!Left Christchurch early, on a bus with only 15 people - quite the nice change to the currently normal crowd of 50.
