    ... ever done in my life and I loved it. Before flying off to Cape Town I had a chance to visit a friend in Christchurch for the weekend. I worked with Lisi in London before she emigrated to New Zealand with her Kiwi boyfriend about 6 months ago. They live in a beautiful little town called Lyttelton just outside of Christchurch in a beautiful house up in the hills overlooking the port. She makes a good case for emigration. On Saturday we took a trip into Christchurch and I ...

    21/02/2014 We woke up early to pack all our stuff and say our goodbyes to Em, Sparky and Lawton.

We stop in Blenheim to get some lunch to eat on the ferry as food is very expensive onboard. We get ...

    ... some drinks overlooking Mistletoe bay. We stop again at Tara Bay but this time for the evening as we have a bit of a snooze ready for the late night and dinner.

Fingers crossed we don't have a recurrence of ...

    ... they didn't have a licence for proper cups! The owner barely acknowledged us and the 'couples' who arrived after us were all given free samples of fudge - not that we wanted any!! Bearing in mind that we were here on a Saturday, we were surprised how many cafés and restaurants were closed - they just don't open on a Saturday! From Havelock to Picton we took the Queen ...
