Take the Scenic Route

Sunday, September 18, 2005


So it turns out that blogging isn't so dissimiliar from my previous diarying experiences (a little bit during high school). When life is most interesting and note-worthy, there's the least time to get round to writing about it.

So anyway, a couple of weekend's ago, we got out of town away to Canterbury, staying in Lyttelton and then Waipara. We stayed at Waipara Sleepers, in an old converted Guardsvan. Extremely cool. Better yet, freshly laid eggs and fresh bread in the morning. Mmmm, perfectly poached eggs with my espresso in the morning, sitting on the Guardsvan deck.


The kitchen facilities are in the 'railway station' in the background.

Still complete with many of there original fittings, there probably aren't many more unique places to stay in New Zealand. For any train buffs/interesteds, there are a few more pictures on Flickr.

More from Waipara later...

I had no idea! I SO have to stay there when I head north next.

You SO do. I thought it might appeal to your inner train buff!
