Dear Blog the Globe followers,
I hope you are all doing well despite the Covid disruptions and lack of international travel.
Like you, Blog the Globe has suffered with no real travel and lockdown restrictions have meant the number of posts I’ve published has significantly diminished. I’ve tried to be positive, making plans and booking activities and accommodation, all the while telling myself life must go on amidst Covid. Yet the reality has been quite the opposite, spending tedious hours unpicking what I’ve have planned, unsure when to rebook.
But the good news is, while Omicron is knocking on our door, our Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern has reassured us there will be no full on lockdowns.
So, it’s time to get out and really start exploring. I’ve recently enjoyed these locations while maximising my time exploring New Zealand, so if you’ve missed the posts, take a look at them.
Our West Coast roadie from Queenstown to Hokitika
Minaret Station plus an amazing West Coast wilderness experience
Hollyford Track- Put your tramping boots on learn about those that walked before you
Why Stewart Island exceeded my expectation
While we are enjoying a magnificent summer, winter will be here before we know it. Last September I skied the Tasman Glacier, two 10 kilometre runs among the highest mountains in New Zealand.
My next post is about this incredible experience, hopefully something to get you excited and planning.

Thanks Jane. I’ve so missed your blog and can only imagine how difficult it has been for you, a World traveller. In October last year we took a chance and went to the Nelson/Tasman area for 2 weeks. We had never been there and I have to say it was the most awesome trip! Farewell Spit, Havelock Mail Boat, tiny back roads and villages, St. Arnaud! We saw so much but at a very relaxed pace, made new friends with Air B & B owners – a very special trip in all. You have always whetted my appetite for travel so it was such a wonderful time seeing our own country. Thank you for sending your short blog.
Hi Sue, How lovely to hear from you. It has been very trying times with Covid, but great you are geting out bad about. I’m begining to plan an little travel now, so fingers crossed we all stay well.
Love your blogs. Just booked Hokitika Fire Station as a result! Here’s to a year of more travel x
Thanks for your lovely comment. Hope you enjoy the fire station. It’s full of great memorabilia.
