      Going down a very slippery slope

      ... lost control completely and began squealing my way down the slushy slope, with small children having to leap out of the way as I came through. At the very bottom of the run, opposite the cafe, there was a rocky patch on the ground where the snow had melted away. I knew I had to avoid it, so naturally I skiied straight into it. That brought me to an abrupt stop and I went from vertical to horizontal within a few milliseconds, bashing my ...

      ... but instead we have to go down to Wanaka and then the next day get another bus over to Franz. About 4pm Rebecca for the glacier guides rings and says I need to get a drug test before leaving Christchurch, they have booked me in and all I have to do is turn up before 5. However it is 6km away and I have no transport to get there, so whether I wanted to ...

It is thought that Christchurch lost 30% of its residents that day. Most of these got up and fled- refusing to live with the constant aftershocks, or perhaps sick of sharing a 'port-a-pot' ...

      ... either side of the Southern alps is different. The highest point of the trip is Arthur's pass, 920 m, and was opened up by Arthur Dobson in 1864. We had a brief photograph stop here. Next we went through the Otira Tunnel which is about 7 km long and 1:33 gradient. The next station was Moana near Lake Brunner which is famous for brown trout. We followed the Grey river into Greymouth and this was a coal mining region and gold mining in the hills ...

      ... with melting snow in spring I wonder. This is very much a skiing area in winter, lots of ski and snowboard hire shops and resort areas on route. I should think it looks amazing when everywhere is white. At present we have lots of greenery, a few flowers and its raining off and on. Typical British summer! It's quite hard to imagine that it's January as all the tv ads are for back to school equipment and uniforms. School starts at the end of their summer holiday by the end of the ...
