Day 553 – Kaikoura, New Zealand

Day 553 – 13th December 2006 +13:00 GMT Total Miles 91483

James and I decided after a lazy morning we would go ATV quad biking as Mark recommended with his friend Alistair. Now Alistair owns a 1600 acre farm of sheep and cattle and has miles and miles of quad bike paths. So James and I turn up at 1pm and get shown how to ride the bikes and then off we go, zooming around at speeds of up to 70kmph up and down hillsides, along rivers and across numerous fields.

We also visited a seal sanctuary on his land. We stopped after a couple of hours for a cup of tea and a biscuit before returning back to the start at 4pm.

A highly recommended trip and great value for money. We then headed back to the hostel and Matt and I headed into the town looking in the local shops and walked back along the beach.

Had a quiet evening just playing games and chatting to other hostel guests.
