We've made it to the Antipodes, and now get to wax nostalgic about the days when we had to carry everything on our backs. Now we have our own little pack mule, our first elephant, our golden gorse crusher, ERAWAN! More Kiwi info and pics soon as soon as we get some down time- right now we're felling wattle trees and getting used to life in a family of seven!
leaving ChristchurchWe spent our first night in the van in the parking lot of our previous hostel after having gotten our stored stuff locked in reception the night before due to a late return. oops. It worked out fine- we managed to have hot meals and showers along with our sleep out!
Erawanparked in a little field at Onuku Farm Hostel in Akaroa, where we spent our second night in the van.
cozy sofa timeDuring the day, this is a sofa, but it converts to a double bed for night time. Erawan is a 1986 Mitsubishi Delica in mighty fine condition. When you lie down to sleep, you can look at the stars through his six rear sky lights!
