10. Day of 24 in New Zealand: Off to the South Island

After a well deserved sleep we got up in the morning, checked out and went with our little Tweety to the harbor of Wellington. There we drove onto the Kaitaki, a ship of the Interislander Ferries.


The Kaitaki has room for 1350 passengers and a car and truck capacity of 1780 lane meters. There are 10 decks, with a movie theatre, playzone, vehicle deck, food court and of course the sun deck. The ship brought us to the South Island to a town called Picton, which is in the Marlborough region.


There we went on to a town called Nelson to get to the next tourism center and plan the acitivites for the next day. Afterwards we went on to our next BnB in Motueka. After checking in we went in the town and checked out the local thai restaurant called Chokdee which had a really good Massaman Cury. And medium spicy is more like hot spicy. ;)


So, this was more a travel day. Tomorrow we will check out the Abel Tasman National Park by Kayak and hiking.


Btw. I guess every house has a cat here in Motueka. There are really a lot of cats.


Unfortunately the GPS on boat was a little messed up, so I can’t show you the exact travel map. Just ignore the top part:
