    After getting dropped off about 2.5 hours up the coast from Dunedin it takes us another 2 rides to get to Christchurch, but neither Joanne or I want to spend much time in the city, so we get into a van with two tradesman, sit on their bags of concrete and get taken to the end of the motorway heading north of the city.

    We got to Kaikoura two days ago and checked in a hostel for two nights. We were lucky to have just enough time yesterday to explore the Kaikoura Peninsula, before it started pouring down. The storm coming made a beautiful sky while we were walking on top of the cliffs and then down the beach. We saw many seals, most of them resting or warming up on the rocks.
