Akaroa New Zealand: Vive la difference

There is a mysterious vortex just south of Christchurch on the Banks Peninsular. Either that or our driver has taken a wrong route…  by about 18,000 kilometres, because somehow, we appear to have pulled up in France. Not that I’m complaining.

Sunset at Sofitel Nusa Dua

Hotel review: Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua
