GREAT BARRIER ISLAND (4/1/09-7/1/09)Wpisał Bobuszka, data Styczeń 22nd, 2009
Beautiful island, wonderful scenery and views, sparse population, gravel roads and lots of hills – rather good for our training purposes. Brian and Alison have a house on the island set in 93 acres with their own three mountain tops (NZ seems like Wales – anything over 1,000 feet is a mountain).
They also maintain ye olde British colonial custom of “Sundowners”; up to the top of one of these mountains to enjoy a drink while watching the sunset. What a life! And if had been better organised we could have further enhanced our Sundowner experience by drinking a glass of wine from the Walkers own vineyard.
