      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.

      Dieser Eintrag wird ohne grossen Text auskommen, da ich ihn vorwiegend wegen der Fotos mache.

      Wie bekannt, oder auch nicht, wurde Christchurch in den Jahren 2010 und 2011 von zwei verheerenden Erdbeben heimgesucht, wovon das zweite die groessten Schaeden und die meissten Todesopfer forderte. Allein beim Einsturz des Fernsehturmes sind …

      Today would be my last full day in New Zealand. I had a free day in Christchurch and as I was in no rush to see anything had a nice lay in. I had breakfast with Tessa at 11am then we split up to do our own things. I had a look at the Canterbury museum, which was surprisingly good considering its size. They had excellent exhibits on Maori history, …
