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!

... a place you should play with lego. In the window there was a lego scale map of Middle-Earth, which was cool. Carried on walking through the next part of New Regent Street and spotted The Wizard! He was having a coffee… Fully dressed like a Wizard, managed to get a picture of him.
Checked a map to find out where the Cardboard Church was, then headed for it. We were pretty close anyway. Found some more ...
... mistake on the journey when we gave sat nav another chance when he diverted us from the National highway. We started to be more suspicious when the road we were on became narrower. We started to lose faith when the white lines stopped. We lost even more conviction when there was grass growing in the middle of the road. We completely lost faith when the road turned into a gravelled track. At that point I did a 15 point turn ...
... band, enjoying the music and taking in the atmosphere whilst the George's took It in turns to come and go to the area outside, I was happy, I was even happier when someone near me left leaving an empty bar stool with my name all over it!
so I sat, I listened and I ended up befriending some of the locals who I ended up meeting for a drink the following day and keeping I touch with whilst I travelked the country for the next month and a bit with Stray bus ...
... Gondola lifts you to the top of the Port Hills, almost 500m above sea level. I got stunning 360 degree views when I got to the top. I could see the cityscape of Christchurch, the high peaks of the Southern Alps, Lyttleton harbour formed in a sunken crater and Pegasus Bay. When I got back I continued with my Tram city tour, there weren't many more stops, but it was a nice little trip. I then headed to Re:Start, ...
....well it has been a few days, and it appears that free wi-fi is not readily available where we have been here on the south island of New Zealand, so sorry to anyone who may have been wondering what we have been up to. Our internet connection here is to slow to add pictures so will do so at our next opportunity. Since we wrote on our first day in Queenstown, we have done so much. Ryan chose our outing on Wednesday morning and so we took a walk into town to visit the ...
