    The woman that owns this place is very friendly and so helpful. We got treated to an upgrade to the big double room. It was huge and included a sofa and TV area. The other rooms also looked good and we noticed them cleaning every morning.
    The kitchen is pretty small and basic, but then again the hostel itself can't accommodate many, so it's probably never too busy.
    Loved our stay here.

    ... camp near the boat ramp here. But we decided to look up the hill at the holiday park. The view and the friendly woman decided us. After hearing also about the French festival starting tomorrow. We talked an decided to change plans for two night in Christchurch and have two here. We knew it was likely to get busy, but thought it worth it. Because we're up high it's a steep walk into the village. But very cute shops including clothing store where I bought two ...

    Today is the day we are set to leave New Zealand and i think it's safe to say although New Zealand has been great, we are ready to leave for South-East Asia (mostly looking forward to the promise of sun). I woke up early, made use of the hostel gym and headed into town to get some cash out for the airport shuttle. The nearest cash point was the weird shopping centre that was basically made from colourful containers (as they haven't rebuilt the centre ...

    Christchurch... A city in limbo.

    ... by the beach. The weather had picked up slightly, so we managed to go and sit by the sea for a little bit... aww, how romantic, I hear you say. Yes, it really was. Until it started raining again, so we dashed back into Juicy Luicy and enjoyed a film on the van's DVD player (yes how posh!) and some wine... ahhhh. Nothing better than snuggling up in a tiny cramped campervan with a film and some wine, hearing the pitter patter of rain outside... this is the life!

    ... to worship. Seacans support buildings front facades that will one day blend the old and the new keeping the historic fronts and building modern buildings behind and within. Christchurch has a blank slate to create something unique and beautiful. This city is a testament to human's creativity and resilience. Two hours later we made our last revolution of the pedal, thanked our enthusiastic guide and returned to the "Restart Mall" to test out the food trucks. After ...

    ... recent history in Christchurch. The natural world is unpredictable and unforgiving but it's nature that has given us moments we will never forget. We feel incredibly lucky to have seen some of the things we've witnessed here. There was a wow moment around every corner and I've ran out of superlatives to use in this diary to describe the sights here. Even if my vocabulary was larger and I was able to articulate myself better I still wouldn't be able ...
