We fell in love with Russell, New Zealand. It’s a lovely little town with plenty of quaint shops, many of which cater to tourists. The eateries along the water are wonderful, and the atmosphere (when the weather is good) is delightful.
As a side note, this was my first—and last—day in a ‘healthy’ condition after contracting the Australian flu during our Sydney stopover. As far as our trip went, my timing for getting seriously ill was pretty good. Yes, first and last. We made this excursion, and I promptly developed a lung infection. During my time with the Australian flu, I truly felt as though I might die from the severe coughing. It’s an experience I never want to repeat!
