A travel blog entry by changeofpace


We thought holidays were for relaxing! Boy has there been a lot of challenges come our way…or so it feels!! Not wanting to dwell on the negative straight away but we're slowly being able to see the funny side so thought we would share our dilemmas with you! First off, the storm in Christchurch.
