Student town with an industrial feel and lots of steep streets..mmmmm what does that remind me of...you guessed it, Leeds. Honestly this place could be either Bristol or Leeds, even Glasgow. Dunedin is the celtic name for Edignburgh. You learn something new everyday. Oh and the dreary overcast weather didn't at all make me feel like I was in the north of England.
On the positive side, all of the magic bus drivers say the best thing about this place is leaving it, I beg to differ. It is not a bad city, lots of independent shops and lots of cool bars and pubs, not to mention loads of quirky cafes to warm yourself in. Ate my first chocolate fish with a hot chocolate in Dunedin. Cadburys make so many different types of chocolate here that we don't get...ever heard of a moro bar....thought not!
Talking of Chocolate, I visited the Cadburys chocolate factory. Got loads of free samples including a couple of moro bars, a Banana Chocolate bar (forgotten the name- we don't get it inthe UK) and the famous chocolate fish (another NZ favourite we don't get, its marshmellow covered in chocolate!) and some crunchies and dairy milk! If that wasn't enough i bought a bag of treat size desert range...banoffe pie, lemon cheesecake and fudge brownie!
Apart from chocolate production, Dunedin wasn't much to write home about...just another city. Next!!!
