Travelling with dietary requirements can be a pain in the ass, even finding places you can eat before you get there can be a huge fucking mission sometimes. For our trip to Dunedin, I started looking for possible places we could eat about a few weeks in advance, and it wasn’t looking promising. One of the suggestions was for a place in Takaka, Golden Bay – how is that even close?! (for those not from New Zealand, it’s about a 10 hour drive from where we were staying)

We were in Dunedin over the weekend for a friend’s wedding; had never really been to the South Island before and was really excited about seeing more of the country.
I’m not going to lie though, I was kind of expecting not to like Dunedin; a friend had hated it, and I was scared that I would too. It’s safe to say I was pleasantly surprised; I had a great time and really want to go back for another visit soon (We’ll be in Queenstown in March, and I keep asking Phillip if we’ll be able to make a stop over in Dunedin; despite it not being anywhere we’ve planned to go)
While we were in Dunedin, we did a bit of shopping, went to Toitū, the Otago Museum, the esplanade and Larnach Castle (this is where the wedding was, and holy shit, it’s stunning – I told Phillip that if we ever had a ‘proper’ wedding, this is where we would have it).
I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our time away with you (there’s also some vlogs from our trip at the end of this post, just in case you wanna watch them) Continue reading →
