    ... a breakfast rest. The drive north from Christchurch has to be the most incredible scenic drive I have ever seen, traversing inbetween gorgeous snow-capped mountainous scenery to west, and hugging the rugged blue coastline to the east. Once in Kaikoura and checked in at a hostel together, we set off for a brief hike to a seal colony on the rocky peninsula, where from ...

    ... signature backflips. As if dolphins weren't enough we also caught sight of the majestic and huge Wandering Albatross and in the distance a whale of sorts. Kaikoura is a tiny place and after 8pm you struggle to find another living soul but we really took a liking to it.

By the beach, we parked Fenton up in the spot we chose on our first night, near the semi-resident Canadian in the grey camper. We were soon joined by a pair of German girls who have been sleeping in the back of their estate whilst travelling around. Whilst cooking, we solved the Meatworks mystery.

    ... draws at the end of the bed. Exactly how it would've been too. Strange one. Spent the morning driving before hitting our stop for the next 24 hours or so. Kaikoura. Simon showed us around town and then it was on to the afternoons activity. We first had lunch at the 2nd best fish and chip shop in NZ and although I didn't actually have fish it was still good. I ordered a hot dog as I was really in the mood for one but when it came out it was ...
