Bye Dunedin!

This post has sat in my drafts for over a week now, so better late than never here is briefly what we got up to in our 10 days in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Early last Friday morning we left sunny (cough cough) Dunedin and headed to Nelson. When planning our time in New Zealand we were looking at methods of transport between the two cities, in the past we had always flown but with flights $200 each we decided to find a different way. Tom is a star and was researching transferring hire cars between Dunedin and Nelson, each morning he would check the website diligently until he found one between Christchurch and Nelson. That’s half our trip, so we snatched up the deal. For those who don’t know transfer cars are cars which hire companies need relocated, so you can get an absolute bargain on your transport costs. In our case it was a two day relocation, free tank of petrol and a maximum of 900km distance, great if you want to squeeze in a little sightseeing on the way.
