On Durie Hill

March 7th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

We’d read about an underground elevator near Whanganui and decided that on our way to New Plymouth from Raumati Beach we’d stop for a look. The tunnel entrance that leads to the elevator is on Anzac Parade not far along State Highway 4, but there were cars parked on both sides of the road for [...]

Wanaka Walking Tracks

March 7th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , , |

We’ve walked the Millennium Track in all seasons: in the scorching heat of high summer, in autumn when the leaves turn to fire, under a mantle of silver ice in winter, and in spring when the famous Wanaka tree comes back to life. The track from Wanaka township to Glendhu Bay is an absolute stunner [...]

Where Cycling’s Happening – A Great Ride

March 7th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , |

Growing up in Hamilton I cycled to school on busy roads in a time before cycleways, lanes or trails … dedicated bicycle routes were only a twinkle in the eye of the future. Spending time in the Waikato recently, I found the future is now! Cycling is booming in the heart of the Waikato. No other [...]

Steamy Punk

March 7th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

It was a bit like one of those weird dreams when you wake up relieved and think ‘thank goodness it was a dream’ – except I was awake. An old steam train was rattling down the main street of Thames followed by a ute painted in camouflage with a couple of sinister-looking militia types on [...]

Spotlight 2019 Le Voyageur 7.8CL

The DeLuxe Group in Blenheim have distribution rights for this classy French-built motorhome. We have featured the brand before in issue 70 of this magazine where we learnt that the French manufacturer Pilote produce these luxurious motor-liners with a high level of craftsmanship – there are many features to drool over and ‘ooh la las’ [...]

  • Love the light blue and contrasting stripes with lines of green to add life, goes really well with the existing dark blue floor, bench and table, and light blue cupboards- so no more work to do there. The blinds are blackout as well and super happy with them

Rock’n’Robyn Chronicles – Rosie Reno Interior

March 7th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Straight after the Christmas issue of RV went to print we drove to Auckland and headed to Starfish Interiors in Avondale. We had been there weeks earlier and had the vehicle measured up for new curtains and picked out our fabrics – roman blinds for me all day long in an RV. I love them [...]

It’s been a long hot summer this year so far, and our friends Marie and Neil are over from north Queensland again for a few months, travelling in their fifth-wheeler. Marie has contributed an occasional story to the magazine over the years detailing their travels here. They love their fifth-wheeler – it ticked all the [...]

Auckland’s Museum of Transport and Technology brings our Heritage Alive

March 5th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

Just a word to the wise: when considering a visit to MOTAT (and you should) don’t attempt to go there on a weekend when everyone else in Auckland has the same idea. MOTAT is set on 40 acres of land at the popular Western Springs Park – a destination in itself. It’s adjacent to Auckland [...]

Living in a Tiny House on Wheels – Our First Nine Months on the Road

March 5th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , |

Where did that nine months go! We can’t quite believe it but we’ve been on the road for over nine months already. Sometimes it feels like we’ve been doing this for years, and then in another instant it feels like it was only yesterday that we were stuck at my parents, waiting for the repairs [...]
