Dunedin, we were told, is a student town. But when we arrived, through the lingering rain and heavy fog, the historical landmarks of the town were most prominent.
The steeples of the first church of Otago.
The Rail Station that housed an art gallery and sports hall of fame within.
And the Larnachs Castle, with its artistic interior and gardened pathways, all overlooking the beautiful Otago Penninsula.
These are the types of days best suited to leisurely walks, through parks or historic buildings, light banter with a mate or reflective silence in solitude, a warm cup of tea by a grand fireplace to dry out your dampened clothes, or sitting on a park bench with a new book while pigeons sit atop a statue’s head.
