Itinerary for the day (from top):
A little coffee for the time-difference. NZ is five hours ahead of us.
The Olveston House. It's the old voyeur instinct, I love looking at other people's homes.
A short stroll around the oldest university in NZ, the University of Otago. 'Geology' and 'Maori Studies' sounded very interesting indeed.
Lunch break and catching up with some local news.
Cadbury is actually UK and not NZ, but Dunedin has the only Cadbury factory that is open to the public, and because HC loves his discovery channel (see: 'how do they do it?' and 'how stuff works'), we decided to go find out how chocolates are made. Did you know that white chocolates are actually made from cocoa butter which is a kind of fatty oil released from cocoa beans when heated?
Cadbury factory?! wow. beautiful pictures. sounds like a great trip!ReplyDelete
Yeah it was fun, in fact so fun that we didn't want to come back. They have some chocolates which are only sold in NZ such as the Cadbury Jaffas and Fish, which were interesting to try out.Delete
so much green! love it.ReplyDelete
mike is exactly the same - always wondering how stuff works/is made.
I wonder if it's a guy thing, I remembered someone saying that guys don't grow up, their toys just get more complex, might be a bit of truth in that.Delete
ive never been to nz but i have lots of good friends there and one day i would like to visit. i really travel through your photos. and cadbury factory?? so funny there is one in nz. i think they closed most or all of them in the uk. p.s. so many sheep there!!!!ReplyDelete
My exact sentiments Angelica :) I couldn't figure out why there was one in NZ, but I could sense that they still have a strong affiliation to UK and the Queen, and Cadbury seems to have a monopoly there in chocolates, which might explain why. Oh and yes, many many sheep and cows, in fact someone told me before that there are apparently more cows in NZ than the human population in my little country. Humbling food for thought :)Delete
