Next stop Nelson (and staying in the sister hostel to the one we were just staying at in picton! So still get the yummy free chocolate pudding!!!!) Had a really pleasant (using the thesaurus on word) time, went for a 'trek' along the abel tasman and rained the WHOLE day!! So spent all day really cold and wet, got back to the bus stop where we scrapped together our change for a hot chocolate, just about thawed out when we have to get on a freezing bus where the stupid bus driver doesn't know how to close his window (even after we asked him!) or change gear!
We also walked to the centre of New Zealand (which conveniently is at the top of a hill!!) good views of nelson though and worth the walk!!
