Saturday 28 November to Wednesday 2 December


Didn't get very far today.

This morning we left Queenstown and headed over the Crown Range Road. We stopped at the Cardrona Hotel for a Devonshire tea. This place has a great garden bar and a very friendly cat!

Then we drove into Wanaka, the next main town over from Queenstown.

The weather was lovely and after looking round town we sat on a park bench by the lake enjoying the view. It was so relaxing we decided to find some accommodation with a view and get a bottle of wine to share.


We drove to Mt Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain.

We walked up to look at Tasman Glacier and the icebergs in Tasman Lake.

After that we had a bit of driving to do as we wanted to get as close to Christchurch as we could. We ended up pulling into a camp gound in Geraldine (about an hour out of Christchurch) just as the camp office was closing at 9.30pm. We got a cute little cabin to stay in for the night.

Monday and Tuesday

We stayed in Christchurch at a family friend's house. This was the highlight of our stay in Christchurch.

This morning we left Christchurch and headed north to Kaikoura. We are lucky to have a friend's holiday home to stay at here. It's wet today so will probably be in front of the fire with a DVD tonight. Tomorrow we might go whale-watching.

Stay tuned!
