Tuesday 1st December 2015…Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits!!!

For any new readers my Mum used to tell me that if I said the above the first thing on a new month it would bring good luck for that month and I have been saying it for nearly 45 years and look how lucky I am!!!!

Had a great sleep these local New Zealander’s know what a comfy bed is…..had a slow and easy breakfast and was on the road by 9am……the intention was to drive the coastal road up to Dunedin where I have an airbnb place booked.

I took my time and investigated all the sights starting with

So not bed eh????

Then it was back onto the main road and to Dunedin airport where there is a Juicy car rental depot.

When I picked up the car on Saturday I was not happy with it…too big, too noisy and the drivers seat very uncomfortable and no way to adjust it.  I went back the next day but they had no other vehicles to exchange but said if I was near another rental office they may be able to help.  I was not particularly happy with this service but no amount of demanding was going to get me another car.

So I found out there is an agency here and I stopped in.  The young guy behind the counter listened to my story and said No problem I have the car for you…..and he did.  Just exchanged my stuff and five minutes later I was on my way a very happy man in
