Alrighty, currently I have ventured down to the South Island via Wellington and Abel Tasman National Park. Allen Schapiro has joined me for this trek and is staying a week in between his travels back to the East coast after 5 months in Singapore. We hopped on the Stray Bus in Picton and are traveling with other adventurers from Germany, Switzerland, England, Holland, Italy, Canada, Romania, Russia, New Zealand and the States. Yesterday, he and I and a few more bros did the Coastal Track in Abel Tasman. Its a 12 kilometer tramp all along the coast line beaming with gorgeous views of vivid greenish-turquoise waters and plush rainforest vegetation. Stunning! It was the best sunny day here in NZ so far and you can tell that summer is right around the corner!
