          This was a very clean and well cared for hotel. It was next to the Cathedral Gardens and had easy access to Curves for exercising. There were a lot of extras in the room.

          Today we decided to pull out all the fears and stops and live like Kiwis! On our way to Nelson we stopped at the Waikia bridge and took the leap of a lifetime. Attached to a bungie cord by only one leg each (my right and Linda's left), we plummeted 25 meters head first to the river, where our heads actually broke the surface of the water (photo …

          ... In the meantime I still go every fortnight to Christchurch for work. As you can see from the photos, this is a really nice view from the plane in this part of year. Nice white topped mountains.

          Ingrid and I are still looking around for a new work challenge and have had a few interviews and are currently waiting for feedback. Our gut ...

          ... wine tasting, unfortunately when we arrived the wine tasting place was under renovation and we didn't get to do our wine tasting, sad and sober we boarded the bus again and after a bit longer arrived in Kaiteriteri. This was a pretty sea side hamlet which only really had the hostel, a caravan park, some accommodation and a restaurant. But apparently Kaiteriteri had some of the most expensive real estate in New Zealand. After checking into our hostel we played a few game ...

          ... Very pleasant way to spend the day! After 'tea' of pizza and chocolate brownie - yum! We headed back home for showers and final bedtime stories. Before showing my photos and videos to Jeff and Katie of all my daredevil activities - very amused they were too! Shame I can't upload them onto iPad and share on here... You will just have to wait until I return to see ...

The girls were split up into the two dormitories below the deck with just enough room to stand up, yet they managed to squeeze some bunk beds in! Luckily we didn't spend much time in the rooms and we sat on the top deck were the captain cooked us dinner on the BBQ. When we woke up the next morning it had started raining, again. Once we had eaten breakfast we were ...
