My old stomping ground – Dunedin

My road trip finished in Dunedin, my old stomping ground from university days.  Here I had a chance to catch up with old friends, and check out the city after all these years away. Unfortunately, the city didn’t turn on its best weather while there, varying from stinking hot to bitterly cold. Ah, just as I remember it. Otago University my old alma mater, has grown and changed considerably since I graduated 24 years ago but it was wonderful to wander the old campus and reminisce of days gone by. Funny how you remember things & people you had forgotten. Even stumbled upon one of my old Professors in a café.  My time was spent mostly eating and drinking going from breakfast to lunch to dinner with friends, trying to fit them all in in the short time I had. In between times I was able to explore the environs of Dunedin and the Otago Harbour & Peninsula.  Dunedin has a treasure trove of some 20 odd golden sandy beaches within 30 mins of the city centre, with a couple right in the middle of the city. The city is surrounded by rugged hilltops affording fantastic views of the city and its environs and a myriad of tracks to meander along. Enjoy the views!
