Some of our favourite places to visit in the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Including Abel Tasman National Park, parts of Golden Bay and the Marlborough Sounds. Have I missed any places?

Another sneaky #AprilFools  prank from Google? Or have their servers really gone down? Ahhh, now I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing! #OverRelianceOnGoogle

One of my favourite NZ coastlines and a top spot in Dunedin. Recently flew my quadcopter here to capture the dramatic coastline https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6jXbd1PDa4

Disappointing. Remember Tusk being our Thai takeaway of choice 10 years ago when we were living in Mt Eden, but would not return now. Pad Thai was disappointimg with little flavour, no lemon, barely noticeable peanuts and oddly covered by a large scrambled egg. Tom Yum soup was too sweet and had little spice despite having spicy in the name. Chicken cashew nut tasted extremely fishy and was pushed aside early on. Certain aspects of the service weren't so great and others rather unpleasant. Gave it an additional star because I actually quite enjoyed the fried banana ball dessert.

I wasn't overwhelmed by the food or staff, but I did enjoy the presentation of the flaming pancake (I'll post the photo) and I would give this place a 2nd try.

Laid back fun atmosphere. Staff were very helpful and were able to customize my pizza to include anchovies. Pizza was delicious. Live music started up later in the afternoon.

Ate here for a business lunch and it was outstanding. Easy to see why Metro rated it as one of the best restaurants in Auckland. Service was knowledgeable, friendly and impressive at getting all people served at the same time. Presentation was immaculate and the taste very delicious. Pricey, but we all came away impressed.

Immaculately presented food, knowledgeable and attentive wait staff and unbeatable views on a clear day. Very expensive, but the varied, small dishes were a delight to the taste buds.
