The Hundertwasser Toilets were bizarre toilets but this one in Waihi just made us laugh out loud! I talked about the artistic Hundertwasser toilets in my previous Travel Tuesday (or maybe that should be Toilet Tuesday) post. I hasten to add that these Men's toilets in Waihi were not in anyway artistic, quite the opposite in fact, …
An artistic toilet block on the tourist trail in New Zealand captures our imagination
The Hundertwasser Toilets are one of the most bizarre toilet blocks I think I've ever seen. We missed them the first time. We drove back up the street and there they were, how on earth had we missed them? Bright, colourful, artistic and brilliant! Maybe the hundreds of motorcyclists riding up and down the street …

Railway sheds along the Central Otago Rail Trail

Travel Blog: New Zealand #10 – Road trip, rocks and pennyfarthing fun
My last post had us leaving Dunedin on our way up the coast towards our eventual destination of Christchurch. As we left Dunedin we checked out the steepest residential street in the world, Baldwin Street, and a lookout over the city.
