Taieri Gorge Train Trip
Last Saturday Sarah and I went on the Taieri Gorge train which departs Dunedin Railway Station and travels towards Central Otago along the Taieri River Gorge. The trip was spectacular and it was fun to be on a train. It was crazy how, as in the picture above, the terrain would just drop off and it would leave very high train track bridges. Also, none of the tunnels (you go through 10 tunnels) have been redone and are very narrow! At first it was really scary to go through them, but we got used to it after awhile. Another cool thing about the train trip was we went from the green, rolling hills of Dunedin into a pretty dry, desert climate all within only two hours! I'm pretty sure NZ is one of the few places in the world where that would happen!
