          Das Dorset backpackers ist ein in die Jahre gekommenes Holzhaus mit voellig ueberteuerten Preisen. Fuer das 5 Quadratmeter kleine Zimmer zahlte ich 79 NZD. Im Zimmer war kein Stuhl, kein Tisch, kein Bord um nur die Tasche, geschweige denn die Kleider nachts aufzuhaengen. Geraeuschdaemmung gleich null. Bad und Toilette, bei 4 Grad minus drausen, ohne Heizung.

          Dorset House is ideally situated next to the Botanic Gardens & within walking distance of the centre of Christchurch. It has some lovely public rooms & good hot water, laundry facilities & attractive kitchen with an outside deck.

          Was für ein schöner entspannter Tag....

Und irgendwie sind wir auf Tim Tams gekommen, die ich jetzt natürlich haben wollte. Also auf, einkaufen. Ich liebe diese …

          We arrived at 10pm. After Toby attracted the attention of the sniffer dogs because he smelled fruity we caught our little bus to Dorset house.

It would also be pretty cool to see new shops opening up, simply by dropping a container into the site or on top of another container (not sure how high they could build but there were a few shops at least two stories high.).
