    We may have arrived in NZ at 12.30am but we were on our way to pick up our van by 8am with the great customer service of our motel.
    The pick up of a van is always an arduous time consuming process but we did get out of there, buy our groceries and leave Christchuch by noon.
    Very soon after hitting the road we remembered why New Zealand is so special. Around ...

    ... we headed back to the road to eat lunch. Back on the bus we had a rather long stop at Greymouth where people got on and off after being on or going on the kiwi scenic rail route. We drive next to some of the route on the way in and the gorges and passes were insane.

    ... is where I literally spent all afternoon until tea. Others went swimming in the lake but I didn't get chance to go and see it, I was way too busy making my dinosaur outfit. I made a massive tail from cardboard, big dinosaur feet from scrunched up magazines and then painted them both and some cones to stick down my back. It was then time to paint myself! Before tea I only had time to paint my legs to look like green scales but this took slightly longer to do than ...

    ... had chowder and I had calamari. After petrol and a supermarket experience we crossed the powerful looking Grey river for the last few kilometres to our pitstop for the night. After driving through the flooded main road we left the local floods behind and soon came to the tourist attraction of Punakaki Rocks - tidal blowholes and pancake rocks. Google. Impressive half hour or so. Five minutes later pulled down a drive on a small bit of ...
