So after being in Dunedin for a couple of days and taking a look around have headed down to Gore to stay with my half-sister Andrea for a bit. Not a lot to do in Gore but there was some stuff to see. Took a look at the bird park and the pioneer-heritage village. Saw the big fish...went to the supermarket. Talked with the family.
Dunedin was ok. Stayed at Penny's which was alright. Ended up out on Thursday night - a smallish bar in the downtown. I do not think much was happening as far as night life goes, as the Uni was not back in yet...but it was fine. Would have liked to take more of a look around the Art Gallery but the Museum was ok (n.b. only freebies in Dunedin apparently). Did not spend a lot of time there either which was unfortunate. Had to rush around the place it felt like. I would think 3 days in town would be enough but after spending a day going around the shops and then other odds and ends it really was a whistle-stop tour. Although I have been pretty tired this last week or so...perhaps it is just me.
Arrived into Invercargill yesterday about 6 pm after missing my bus in the morning. Stayed in the hostel in town last night but will be heading off to do some couch surfing this afternoon. Then probably over to Te Anau and up to Queenstown. I think John has gone fishing.
