Dunedin is a lovely city and a great place from which you can explore the area around it. The Otago Peninsula is beautiful! I did an organised tour where, among other things, we visited Taiaroa Head and the albatross colony. This was an optional extra, and I was very excited, but sadly it was a bit of a letdown. The scenery was beautiful, so that wasn’t it. I mean, look at this view, so pretty! The thing was that we could only see the albatross from a glass observatory and saw these immense birds as tiny specs on maximal zoom. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about letting nature run its course and not meddling with wildlife. I just think it could have been done a bit better, without interfering with the animals. Apart from this, I highly recommend exploring the Otago Peninsula. It’s stunning!
