The first thing we noticed about the South Island was the weather. There was no rain! Lot's of hot sunshine instead!
The South Island was a lot more rugged and mountainous compared with the North.
We got to this campsite and met a Welsh Couple who invited us to their place (being a van) for cards. Well the cards never even made it to the table. Had a really good night, chatting fart, getting pissed on red wine and keeping the rest of the campsite awake until the wee hours. Had a horrid hangover the next day and forgot to exchange details with the welsh wizards as we said goodbye before heading north...doh!
