          Great place to live at in Christchurch. It is about 10 minutes drive from the city center, which is still recuperating from the 2011 earthquake. The hotel proudly stands at 132 years of age and has a vintage look that gives it a very romantic aura, perfect for honeymooners like us. The lady at the reception was very welcoming and gave us handy tips on where to eat and visit.

          We stayed at Merivale Manor for 2 nights, one day each at the start and end of our roadtrip of the south island. The room during our first night was equipped with a full kitchen, music system and Jacuzzi bath. However, during our return trip, though the room price was only 10NZD less, it was considerable smaller in size and had no Jacuzzi. Hence the reason I gave 4 stars to the hotel. Overall, I would definitely recommend the hotel!

          ... in the opposite way to what the map said, possibly due to the road works, road closures etc because of all the rebuilding still going on due to the earthquake. I am not the best of navigators so l got even more confused, we went round twice until eventually we made it back to the jail! It is very sad to see so much damage due to the earthquake. We are being let out tomorrow for the day due to good behaviour, for our scenic train ...

Puis, après avoir signé les papiers et passé un GPS sans m'expliquer comment celui-ci fonctionnait,le commerçant me passa tout simplement les clés en m'indiquant où se trouvait l'auto dans l'immense stationnement de l'aéroport. Je ne l'ai pas trouvé, alors il fut obligé de venir me ...

          ... like a marquee tent. The only cardboard was used for some decoration....we felt that we had been mislead! The last two parts of our tour were oversized arms chairs (pretty much sums it up, a slightly bigger than normal chair) and friendship corner however when we arrived there was nothing to acknowledge that this even existed.

          After our tour ended we separated and got the bus back to our separate homes for the next few days. Fee was working ...

          For a modest fee of $15, viewers could set up chairs and blankets on a slight hill facing the stage. We had seen Peter Pan (for free) several nights ago and the stage for MacBeth (performed by professional actors) had almost as modest a stage. So far, I wasn't impressed, but then again, Peter Pan amazed me so I withheld judgment. We popped our bottle of ...
