Glad I’m in Hamilton

January 3rd, 2014 at 4:30 pm by David Farrar

Have been up in Hamilton since the 31st. As Wellington is battered with storms, fairly good timing.

Has been great weather up here.

Becoming quite a fan of Hamilton. The trails by the Waikato River are great for cycling, running and walking (have done all three). Also the Hamilton Gardens are exceptional, and much better than others in NZ. Plus did a cycle trail along the Karapiro River which was great scenery.

Sadly back to Wellington tomorrow (if airport is open).

    Next time head for the Eastern Bay of Plenty and Gizzy and try out the Motu Trails among the other delights. Always good weather too – Whakatane is the sunshine capital of NZ.

    The only good thing about Hamilton is driving straight through.

    The only good thing about Hamilton is driving straight through and hopefully missing a Murri! :)

    The really best thing about Hamilton is being able to say you never gained your degree at the University of Waikato! :)

    My mother just moved there. Having previously visited me in Bangkok, she was shocked to see more homeless and/or beggars on the main street of Hamilton than in the tourist areas of Bangkok. WTF is up with that?

    I started a 20km run in Welly at 4am Jan 3. I didn’t know it was a fucking storm. I just thought my first lap time was total shit and that I sucked. I mean – I knew it was windy but it’s fucking Wellington. It’s always windy.

    My answer was to run as fast as I could on laps 2, 3 and 4 – hahahahaha – genius strategy !!

    Such a variety of options for the tourist. I’m not sure I could think of another city where it would be possible to do these unique variety of leisure activities.

    How about banning racists like Johnboy from your blog in 2014 DPF? Or don’t you have the balls.

    hane, more tolerance and willingness to try to understand how different people with different life perspectives view the world would be nice for 2014…
