Ben Nevis to Red Hill and Inwood’s Lookout via Motueka River

Thanks Alex for a great overnight trip from Inwood’s lookout to Ben Nevis. Awesome views over the Waimea Plains, Richmond Ranges and to Mt Tapue-o-Uenuku. Sore legs after the long descent!


Sydney town! Living it up in the big city.

Makes a change from the bush! 10 days holiday in the big smoke, pounding the pavements. Those Aussies have a long way to go before they make any decent craft beer. The trains, buses and boats are excellent. I tried hard to interrogate the locals about which way they would vote – Abbott or Rudd? We joined a protest against sending refugees to PNG. Saw all the sights – the zoo, Bondi, bush walks on the Heath and in the Blue Mountains (Ruined castle trach and the Grand Canyon). Shopped it up (Akubra hat, Aboriginal flag, and a new camera). Hitchiked some rides with the locals. Soaked up the big city wealth while spending our own. Good luck Australia!
