Well have arrived in the lovely land of NZ. After 28 hrs in a plane I have never been so glad to have a cup of tea! Its lashing it down with rain but atleast i was greeted with a golden banana, chocolate and smiling faces.
The next few days will probably consist of sleep sleep and more sleep and some explorations. There is a cardiac hill up to the digs, will keep you fit i can tell you. For all of you who know about the death like hill in Aber then this is 3 times a long and a tad steeper. Not suprising considering the whole town is situated on the side of a hill.(I think mountain describes it better though.)
Thats about it for now really, got to unpack and sort out so will post again soon.
Have unpacked, walked down a slight hill and back up. Was a beautiful sunny day so yesterday went to an art exhibition there were some really nice pieces, i wanted to buy them all but fortunately my pocket was empty! Which was a good job I think. Then I ventured forth to the Yacht Club and smuggled myself onto a yacht and sailed around the Harbour. Delightful, however certain other passengers were not keen...must of been the sheer speed we were gathering. After such an exciting start it was onwards and upwards over the mountains to Christcurch by car. Took in the scenic route which was a little hairy actually not much of a wall left protecting you from the edge, earthquake damage is noticeable.
Christchurch is still in repairs some buildings have had a pretty hard time, some are still boarded off as they are deemed dangerous. However it wa sa walk through the Botanical Gardens, which resulted in tree climbing! Then a lovely stop for lunch by the art centre where i smapled some lovely food well needed obviously. The day was ended with a tower of ice cream, rum and raisin and vanilla was delicious and I didn't drop any down myself which was a result.Today is a quiet day, walk around later on, ears are still dodgy from the flight. Will keep you posted much love.
