Not much to report today folks – except Nick had to go to the A&E this morning with his legs – has been bitten very badly and his ankles have swollen up + bites have all gone into blisters. Apparently he has an infection and has been given a course of tablets to take. Was also told to rest today and keep his legs up!!!! I have also been bitten very badly but mine are just itchy……..
Have worked out the route we are taken from tomorrow.
It hopefully will be
Pick up campervan in Auckland and travel towards the south of the North Island to Whanganui (about a 6 hour drive. stay there Monday Night
Tuesday Morning travel to Wellington and pick up Ferry to South Island – Ferry ride about 3 hours plus 2hours 30mins driving to Picton. Stay here Tuesday Night.

Thursday morning travel through the southern Alps to Kaikoura (should be able to see whales…) this is another 7 hour journey. Stay here Thursday night.
We have a spare night so we can stay longer in one of the destinations if we like.
