Stand astride the Plates

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , |

If you happen to be in the Greenwich Royal Observatory in London, it’s possible to stand with one foot in the eastern hemisphere and the other in the western hemisphere. In the Indonesian city of Pontianak, you can stand with one foot in the southern hemisphere, and the other in the northern hemisphere. But at [...]

The Sea Question

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , , |

There is something about a walk on the beach that soothes the soul. I find if my mind is busy and I need to clear my head, a walk along Oakura Beach seems to work wonders. By the time I’m a short distance down the beach, the expanse of ocean stretching to the horizon with [...]

  • Such a joy to be in Queenstown where there are hardly any tourists there

Winter Woollies Time

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Weather-wise the last few months have been lovely in Pukekohe, nowhere near as cold as we are used to in the Wairarapa. It is almost fun to watch the weather and see a 10–12 degree difference in the overnight temperatures between here and there. We have been doing quite a bit of travelling recently, with [...]

A recent trip to Silverdale, north Auckland, saw us drop in to catch up with Ben Young, Sales Manager at Nationwide RV Silverdale.

Leisure Line Nomad580

A recent trip to Tauranga to visit Rob Axton at Country RV was timely as he was ‘pimping and priming’ the latest arrival from Hamilton’s Leisure Line Caravan manufacturer, the Leisure Line Nomad caravan. As luck would have it Colin Bates from Leisure Line was also there helping out with the setup of this latest [...]

Ci Kyros Duo Prestige

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , |

When you’re out looking for an RV to enhance your life, it is easy to get carried away with size and must-have lists full of island beds, separate bedroom, separate shower and bathroom facilities, big garage storage and more. These types of hunts will usually involve a nice tidy $300,000+ budget. If that is what [...]

Airstream Base13 from Aussie

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , |

This package really is quite intriguing; built in the USA by Airstream and shipped to Jayco in Australia for some extras to be fitted for the Aussie market, this North American brand is iconic for its aeronautical look with a retro pop-riveted aluminium exterior. It was fun to check out this five-metre long caravan (or [...]

I Spy Jayco

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , |

While on the South Auckland Caravans yard checking out the Airstream I looked through a couple of other caravans they had lined up. In particular I looked at the Jayco Silverline Outback caravan, a full-width nose kitchen, massive 216L fridge/freezer unit, L-shaped dining area with separate wall couch, with a lounge and bedroom slide-out, to [...]

  • Entering the Roxburgh Gorge is near-perfection

Gorging on Greatness

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , , |

Which to choose: staring all day at a computer in order to keep the Great Rides App in shape, or steering my bike through a river gorge to keep myself in shape? Today I choose the latter, so leaving early morning from my home on the shores of moody Lake Wakatipu I head to the [...]

Springtime in the Garden

June 30th, 2019|Tags: , , , , , |

After the cold and grey months of winter there is nothing like a little spring sunshine to entice us into the great outdoors. Plants start appearing in my garden that I had forgotten about – it’s like someone cast a wand around the garden conjuring up green foliage and flower buds. As a garden photographer [...]
