Map of New Zealand showing places that we visited in March/April 2011

Map of New Zealand showing places that we visited in March/April 2011

Huguette and I have been back from a wonderful trip to New Zealand for almost three weeks. It's time to start putting stuff on Flickr!

I would rank this trip as one of the best prepared that we have ever done. Because we are both retired, we had the time to study the information at hand - mostly online - and pick the itinerary that suited us the best. We also booked everything (flights, car rental, ferry, accommodation, etc.) online months ahead. We were particularly careful in choosing our lodgings in terms of location, services, price, etc. This paid off as we were never disappointed, not even once, with our choices!

This map shows the places that we visited during the trip. The way it worked is that every 2 or 3 days, we drove from one place to the next, which gave us plenty of time to discover the area surrounding each location and to rest as needed. Even though this was one of the longest trips that we have ever taken - close to five weeks in all - it was also one of the least tiring. In all we drove about 2600 km in ten segments (not counting the Wellington to Picton segment on the ferry). So, that's about 260 km per segment. At 75 km/hour on average, that's about 3.5 hours drive (plus stops) each time we changed places. Quite feasible, especially in New Zealand where the traffic is never heavy and the roads are great. Driving in New Zealand is a real pleasure!

The country is spectacular in terms of scenery, geology, wildlife, vegetation and even culture (the Maori culture is very prominent even though you can feel that it is intended mostly for the tourists). Needless to say that Huguette and I took lots and lots of photos and videos, almost 3000 between us. But don't worry; less than 5% of these are Flickrable!

Very quickly, here's a brief (very brief!) overview of what we did in each of the 12 places marked on the map:

Auckland: arrived from Canada March 17, 2011. Visit the city, New Zealand's largest;
Paihia: visit the Bay of Islands region and the country's most important Maori cultural centre;
Rotorua: visit the geothermal features, amongst the most spectacular in the world;
Napier: this city was destroyed in 1931 by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and rebuilt afterwards in Art Deco. Today, Napier's architecture is considered one of the finest Art Deco collections in the world;
Wellington: visit the city, New Zealand's third largest, and Te Papa Tongarewa, the largest museum in New Zealand and one of the most modern natural history and cultural museums in the world;
Picton: do a cruise on Queen Charlotte Sound and visit a couple of wineries in the famous Marlborough region;
Westport: explore the rugged northwest coast of the South Island, the Karamea area and the Oparara Arch. See the famous Pancake Rocks at Punakaiki;
Franz Josef: see the two most famous New Zealand glaciers, Franz Josef and Fox;
Wanaka: explore Mount Aspiring National Park;
Te Anau: drive to spectacular Milford Sound, do a cruise in the fjords, and hike a portion of the Kepler Track in Fiordland National Park;
Dunedin: enjoy staying at the Larnach Castle on Otago Peninsula and visit the spectacular gardens surrounding the castle; visit wildlife sanctuaries on the Peninsula (seals, penguins, albatrosses, etc.);
Akaroa: 25 km from the February 23, 2011 Christchurch earthquake epicentre near Lyttelton; visit Banks Peninsula by joining the famous Mail run.

Of course, the list of things that we did not see and do in the five weeks that we spent in New Zealand is much longer than the above. I should note that one thing that we thought we wanted to do but ended up not doing was to visit some of the Lord of the Rings movie sets. After reading the reviews about those sites (and they're all over New Zealand) we decided to skip them because they are said to be largely dismantled with an overpriced admission fee.

Then, on April 15, we flew from Christchurch to Auckland to catch our Air New Zealand flight to San Francisco where we stayed three days in the Fisherman's Wharf district.

The photographs in this set give an overview of our travels across New Zealand and the few days we spent in San Francisco. We will appreciate your comments. Enjoy!

"Do Cup Chai Ho Jaye?" :)

"Do Cup Chai Ho Jaye?" :)


I love tea... not only for the energy boost one gains from it, but more due to the various conversations one shares during the "cutting-chai" sessions. From the simple information exchanges to the no-holds barred chitchat, from the endless hours of procrastination to the meaningless gossip, all seem incomplete without a hot cuppa chai around.

But in the past few months, some of the best conversations I've shared have been through my instant messengers where I've managed to keep in touch with my distant friends... and some new ones whom i met online for the first time!

Although this might seem as a less dynamic method for communicating, but when you have work going on on your computer almost 24x7, and catching a flight just to spend an evening with your friends and return back the same day just doesn't seem worth it, then at those times having a garma garam chai by your side and a great buddy online makes my evenings as pleasant as they could be!

Hence today, I thought of creating this 365 for one such special friend of mine who's been there and kept me company since quite a few packs of teabags now...

"Happy Birthday Madhura!" :)
...hope you like it (afterall, i made it yellow!) :D

From Ashes to Honor: Book #1 in the First Responders series (First Responders Novel)

If he had only answered that last phone call from the World Trade Center . . .

Minutes before two jumbo jets changed U.S. history, New York police officer Austin Finley ignored the call from his brother, who’d been bugging him for days. Trying to live with his one regret causes hatred and bitterness to consume Austin, and when counselor Mercy Samara recommends desk duty, Austin resigns. Haunted by her own memories of 9/11, Mercy takes a job as a school counselor in Baltimore. When Austin, now an EMT, responds to an emergency at Mercy’s school, both are stunned and wary.

Finally their common—and painful—memories turn suspicion into friendship, then romance.

But hard questions linger: Can they truly move beyond their past harsh judgments and harsh words? Will their past finally bring them closer or—as the tenth anniversary of 9/11 draws near—drive them farther apart?

"Loree Lough proves once again her superb storytelling skills in From Ashes to Honor, peopled by characters so lifelike they seem to jump from the pages."
—Cathy Bryant, author of the award-winning Texas Roads and A Path Less Traveled

"Loree Lough’s characters allow us to re-explore what happened ten years ago and examine our feelings, perhaps like never before."
—Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield, Founder, Christ 4responders and Chaplain, Katy, Texas Fire & EMS
