Ready, willing, Abel (New Zealand, pt. 44)

[inlet]One adventure awaits. Just one more commune with nature, before we jet off to Sydney and the bustle of the urban life. We don’t know what we’ll find there. There’s more to do here, of course…wine tasting, food, perhaps even a restful afternoon on a beach. But on a trip punctuated by the relentless beauty of the wild and framed by its inexorable seduction, this is the final chapter.

But first, we have to get there.

(Continued, with tons of photos and an instruction manual on how to catch a taxi in a place with no roads, here.)

    Worth following the link – amazing pic of the fantail ! So the journey is almost over …. you’ll just have to return one day.

    I was chased by fantails all over Mt. Iron (near Wanaka), so it was good to finally “corner” one and get the full tail effect.

    As for coming back…sooner or later, definitely. I might even finish the travelogue by then. ;-)
