Love the use of the table of contents! Btw, have you tried our Google Maps embed feature yet?

Kaikoura looks great, I must have skipped it when I travelled the South Island, too bad..


Ah crap, knew I meant to try something else sorry I forgot to include that this time round. I just used the map section at the bottom for steemitworldmap 😔

I'll try it out next time unless it won't cause an issue on travelfeed's end if I edit on this one?


If you want to try it on this post feel free to edit, just saw your Google maps screenshot and was wondering if you knew about the new feature :)


I just went to edit and the editor wasn't the easy one but the other markdown/advanced one and couldn't see a way to switch to the Easy editor? I'll leave it this time round I think and hit that map block next time now I know about it 😅


Thanks for pointing that out, when investigating I found a bug that can occur in some cases and prevent editing in EasyEditor, it should work now, at least for posts published from now on

That sound like peace and quiet to be found in the hills or along under those white cliffs walking, epic adventure you had traveling New Zealand.

Well documented all along the way Nicky.

@tipu curate


Thanks Joan! Yes it is definitely quiet up there where we walked, I don't think anyone wanted to get up to the top of the hill when seeing how steep it was! More for us to enjoy in the peace and quiet!

I had to dig deep in the memory bank for this one, definitely wish I had written more notes but researching every thing again brings back some nice memories too!


One and only time I had a diary, preparation and travel notes which I have gone back to on many occasion.


I need to remember to do it more often with the handwritten travel notes as it's a lot easier than typing up at the time I find.

Plus I do like handwriting, particularly with my scrawny "spider out of an inkpot" style of writing haha

Oh wow! Thanks a lot travelfeed!! You just gave me the biggest smile too with this news! Already shared to twitter and it got a few likes and comments, love it!

Love the pictures with the wild animals and the colourful landscapes! I can hear those waves hitting the shore :)


Thanks a lot little sister Gabriela! Yes I'd love to hear those waves again, as long as they aren't hitting the car we're driving along then we'll be OK! Great array of marine wildlife in this part of the world :)

"squeaky bum time"

I can honestly say I've never heard that term before.

Those are some spectacular photos! I really enjoy hiking too and can happily walk for hours. And as you say, it's free!


Haha, it's a bit more old school colloquialism but it leapt out at me as being appropriate here!

I've got a load more epic pictures coming up as I ventured off on my own for a ridiculous 2 week journey around the north and south Island to places I didn't visit on the organised travel tours. You guess it plenty of free hiking activities coming up!

Thanks for stopping by Victor 😊
