Gisbourne Rail

Views from my motel window in Gisbourne on a recent trip (well two months ago now).  Although I'd seen the train line there, the train itself was so unexpected and seems to be a tourist attraction.  Ireland doesn't have motels so I still get quite excited about staying in them.  They sound just so American (yes, Gisbourne is in NZ) and remind me of random TV dramas.  I love how blue the sky is here and how bright everything is in NZ - the sun just seems stronger.  More of a harsh bright light than Ireland's softer illumination.


  1. That is a beautiful sky. Where does the train go to. Is is a short scenic trip?

  2. I've no idea - but we'll be back there in Jan for fieldwork so I'll get a chance to find out then!
