Thoughts and travels of Patrick Lam

Trip Report: Judo Nationals in Christchurch, October 14-16 2022

Finally, I make it to NZ judo nationals, taking 3rd. Designer Cottage was a great place to stay. Plus, Christchurch Tram.

Trip Report: Queen Charlotte Track, October 22-27 2022

Post-punted-paper-deadline trip to Queen Charlotte, plus a stay in Anakiwa. Occasional good views, a bit on the long side.

Trip Report: Banks Peninsula Track, October 3-4 2022

Back at Akaroa for the Banks Peninsula Track with great views of the hilly coast.

New Zealand Restaurants

I looked up two years’ of dining history and collected all the New Zealand restaurants I thought were worth mentioning.

Urban living (3/3): Wellington

Part III: What about Wellington? An unexpected 2 years less a month in Wellington, NZ.
