After spending a fantastic day chasing whales round the ocean we decided to push on and make the last big drive of our trip. We arrived in Christchurch and decided to stay at a campsite a little out of the city centre to make finding it easier. It was evident as we drove in that the earthquake had caused a lot of damage to the roads and bridges, as the last 5k of our trip was through roadworks. We got to our campsite and then made a quick trip to the ...

George crashed the hire car. Reversing out of the parking bay straight into the curb, luckily the back spoiler was only just slightly taller than the kerb, it scraped but it wasn't apparent. Left Sydney airport heading to Christchurch on Emirates. Enjoyed the flight with a four course meal, whilst George and mum travelled with Jetstar- they were stuck with a couple ...

... in at 5.30am! We saw some dolphins as soon as we got out on the boat - an enormous group of them all jumping and swimming around! It wasn't quite light at that time and as the crew weren't happy with the visibility of the water, we observed them and took photos before moving on to find more dolphins. This time it only took us another ten minutes to find dolphins in clearer waters so we all jumped in. It was just would be swimming along with your mask on, making ...

... it can be fully restored relatively quickly and cheaply the current bishop wants it knocked down and replaced with a brand new building. We signed the petition. We returned to the cafe for a beer as it was next to a charming little cinema, with plush seats and an Egyptian theme. The film 'The Railway Man' was so-so. After an excellent curry we headed back to the hotel down Manchester Street, home to Christchurch prostitutes. They ignored ...

... steak, pepper sauce, rice, lemon cake and still lemonade for other meals. Once we had done our food shopping we used one of Bree's vouchers that she gave us yesterday at 'Robert Harris' a coffee shop, the voucher allowed us to get a free hot drink when another one was purchased at the same price so we got 2 medium hot chocolates for the price of one...BARGAIN! Thanks Bree :) That coffee shop had free wifi so we emailed Roma a few pictures of our travels so far as we ...

    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!
