Dunedin well was just that Dunedin. We took it very easy. We were dog tired and decided to take the time to plan the rest of our holiday a bit. It is not that we did not do anything but it was minimal. We walked through the city, visited the cathedral and drove to Larnach Castle things like that.
We actually did not visit Lanarch Castle. We arrived around 16.00 and the castle close at 17.00 so we felt it was not worth the entrance fee for just one hour Too bad. We’d taken Portabello Road coastal road around the Otago Peninsula. It was a nice drive and you have a nice view of the city from the other side. Very nice houses too. Halfway there we crossed over the the castle which is approximately in the middle. We had not clicked that this road was not exactly wide, nor had we thought of all bends in the road. Not taken into account were the lack of traffic barriers and the depth we could fall off the road. Neither SO nor I were quite comfortable with that situation. So after we decided not to visit the castle we decided to drive back the other way. That road is known as “high ridge road”. We know know what that name was chosen. On one side there was this steep cliff down to the sea and on the other side a steep ridge into a valley. So we did the only thing we could do. Keep breathing and drive. Not our most favourite drive ever.
That evening we made our most travel happy recipe; Pasta, pesto, rucola and salmon. A simple recipe and so easy to make even on the other side of the world.
