Travel and Review : New Zealand – South Island - Picton

From Blenheim, barely half an hour, you will reach the northern part of New Zealand’s South Island. It is a rather small town but got its charms all the same.


The above is a pretty distinct landmark that you can’t miss. It is along a street called London Quay. Along the same street as well, you will find the best coffee that you have ever tasted. (well at least for me)
It is called Le Cafe.

So have a good rest and sip a nice coffee (I like it with milk because I think its the good quality milk that made the coffee great)

Once you are done, you may shop at the small shops available everywhere in Picton. Just like other towns in New Zealand, accommodations are really easy to find even for motor homes user.

Over at the far north is the Interislander ship that will take you across to the North Island of New Zealand. I cannot tell you enough how beautiful and picturesque this town really is. You just have to visit it to believe it.

But alas, one must journey on to the north where new experiences await. Since I drive, its pretty easy to drive onto the ship. Once inside, instructions (in English) will be made known to you where to park your vehicle, when to alight and when the time comes when to board your vehicle again.

Enjoy the view while you sail from the south island to the north.

In less than 4 hours (give or take the vehicle queuing plus ship’s journey) you will finally reach the town of Wellington, the capital of New Zealand.
