Here starts NZ, although I still have some photos to put on from OZ, not many though. But already have loads of NZ. We started off in Christchurch the day before yesterday. Bumped into a guy we met in Byron Bay. One of the middle aged lady guys. Some of you will know what I mean.
Christchurch was a nice small town, but quite wet when we arrived and alot colder than what we're used to. But when we awoke the next day the sky was blue and the sun got hot. Yippee which made the journey in our new hire car (a nissan pulsar 1.8 for the techies) a really beautiful scenic experience. Snowcapped peaky mountains, beautiful azure blue meltwater lakes, and huge wide river valleys and flat plains. Very Peter Jackson territory. Arrived last night in Oamura after an inland loop and today we are going to try and see some penguins returning for the night they roost on the beach apparently, and a rest day for Claire who is doing the driving, so only fair I should make the tea. Put some piccies on soon. Lots of love to all, Pete and Clairexxxx
