Made our way to Christchurch today. Still trying to make up our minds about the place. At this point Dan’s (that’s Dan Carter – fly half of the All Blacks) territory hasn’t impressed us yet. It reminds us a little of Pretoria? Not that you can fault Pretoria – just really strange when you have such a familiar feeling in a place half way across the world. Having said that there’s an English air to it all – they have the river Avon that runs through the centre of town – you have the opportunity to go punting as you sit back and take in the views.
Things got a bit chilly late afternoon so we decided to head back “home” to our snug motor home. It seems the further south we go, the colder its getting. We’ll check out the city some more tomorrow!
