Adam and Charlotte's Great Escape.
We ended our last postcard telling you about the whale watching in Kaikoura. Well from here we headed to Hanmer Spring which like us most people go there to visit the thermal spring reserve. We visited the thermal pools Tuesday in the early evening when it was was lit up and fairly quiet. There are several hot thermal pools here, rock pools and sulphur pools, all with tempertures above 35 degrees. It was very nice and relaxing and you move between the pools as you choose although we didn't spend too long in the very hot and smelly sulphur ones. The only thing that spoilt it was when 200 children turned up on some sort of trip and bombarded us treating the place like a fun pool. So this cut our trip short. On Wednesday we headed back to Christchurch and had to return the car. We are now packing for our flight tomorrow to Bangkok. Well it is good buy from the New Zealand we hope you enjoyed reading about it. Lots of Love Charlotte and Adam xx
