We’ve been on the road for 4 weeks now and it’s good to just relax and visit the sights.
We started with a BIG breakfast and then coaught a bus out to the Airport where the Antarctic Expedition Center is located. This where the USA and NZ send their people to the Antarctic and they have an excellent interactive tourist facility. We did a few things including simulating a -45 degree freeze.
After this we went back into town and visited the Christchurch Cathdral and climbed the spire.
Then it was ‘Punting On The Avon’, the river that winds its way through Christchurch. A very pleasant experience; the poor punter had quite a job getting us (there were 6 aboard) back upstream against the current.
So that was a good day adding to NZ’s economy. Tomorrow its on the road again and head for Auckland.
