Picton scene

 

Picton, New Zealand was a little intermission from Christchurch to Wellington. Most visitors are Interislander passengers to/from Wellington or on the way to Marlborough Sounds. You can see the glimpse of the extensive sea-drowned valleys from the park right near the coast. Though, Picton is a great place to chill out for few days. I was there for only one and a half day, but I enjoyed the town museum, the view of sea valleys and ice cream. Personal note: I donated 5,000 won (about 5USD) at the museum for their world money collection. At that time, Korea changed the currency design right before I left for the backpacking trip. Wonder if they remember me?

  1. I unexpectedly spent a night in Picton years ago- the Interislander got delayed so we missed our bus to Nelson. So wasn’t a HUGE fan of the place as one tends to not be when you’re involuntarily staying there, but I remember it was not all to dissimilar to the town my family goes to in New Hampshire in summer.
