The Nelson cathedral took 47 years to build! Even with all the project management and design time it doesn´t account for much.

Oldest street in New Zealand is South Street - its quaint timber Victorian houses dating from 1862.

Highlight of the visit to Nelson was the Museum of Wearable Art or WOW. And it is WOW.

Amidst the glamourous classic cars, also enjoyed seeing a real life Delorean! Made in Belfast following the British government´s investment of 84million in the factory that closed within 21 months. Poor ol´ John Delorean´s timing was a bit off making this Boy Toy car right as the recession hit deeper and deeper in the 80s. What I hadn´t realised is that he was the son of a Detroit car factory worker who himself worked in Ford and GM and really wanted to come up with something to topple the monoliths of US car manufacturing. Afraid it was not to be. Most of the cars remained unsold when it went into receivership. The things you learn when you´re travelling!
