Today I’m in the mood for a rant… so, sorry no nice pretty pictures, but sometimes things just have to be said.
Regular readers will know that our two dogs, Jess and Pip the travelling dogs, come with us in the Kiwi Blog Bus on every trip.
This of course means we have to exercise them and pick up after them – which we do without fail.
We are responsible dog owners and walk them on leads in permitted areas only, we take them off the leads when we are on mostly empty beaches or big spacious fields/dog parks etc. Many beaches have strict rules about what time of year dogs are allowed on, or if it’s in the evenings only. Read More…
As we travel around New Zealand in our trusty campervan, The Kiwi Blog Bus, we are always entertained by the antics of our fluffy friends, Jess and Pip the travelling dogs.

It’s the last day of our Easter school holidays and we felt the need to get out in the bus for one last holiday trip and enjoy the gorgeous indian summer we are having.
New Zealand is a land of volcanos, extinct or otherwise.
They are especially prominent in the North Island where many of the striking landscape features are due to several million years of volcanic activity.
The highest mountain in the Waikato is the extinct volcano, Mount Pirongia, situated just 25km from my home town of Cambridge.
The Kiwi Blog Bus stopped there last weekend and todays post is about that part of our Easter trip. Read More…
Close to Hamilton, Cambridge and Te Awamutu is Waipa’s largest peat lake, Lake Ngaroto, and this pleasant destination was the first port of call for the Kiwi Blog Bus on its recent Easter weekend jaunt.
Just a quick picture from one of our Good Friday destinations to keep you going.
I’ll post about our trip in full when we get home but so far it will contain a lake, a mountain and another fab New Zealand sunset.
We were several days into our East Cape road trip when we reached Tokomaru Bay on 31st December 2011.
Travelling with two children, two dogs and my parents (in their own camper) we weren’t particularly looking for a parteeeeee spot for New Years Eve. Read More…
