So we left Queenstown and headed for our 8 hour trip to Christchurch where we met up with Tim Makower.
Tim had got rid of his housemate so we had a room while in Christchurch.
Christchurch is very similar to England - so we watched punters on the Avon, went to Oxford, educated Tim by taking him to the Art gallery (where we played around in the childrens section!) and visited the museum.
Apart from that you would have presumed we were back in Chester as we ate pizza, watched sky and watched girlie movies (I am not sure Tim and Stu enjoyed them tho!)
We flew out of Christchurch to Auckland, where we took another of NZ'a famous one day walks from the domestic terminal to internation terminal. We then paid our departure tax (NZ trying to make more money!!!), read about how the Kiwi lost its wings and jumped on a plane to Cairns. We watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2, they served us pie (again!) and mel lounged across the spare seats.
So we landed in Cairns and were very glad that Simone and Danny (STu's mums friends were there to pick us up! as we didnt know if they would be!)
Love from the place that is very very much hotter then NZ,
Mel and stu x
