    Checked into the motel early and the manager was really friendly. The motel is very centrally located 2 min from Bradley Park. A number of cool eateries are located on Riccarton Road within walking distance of the motel. Worth the stay....

    ... to demolish it and the Heritage Society wants to restore it. The local people seem to be tired of the arguments and just want something done. It will be interesting to see what happens. It is very sad to look at what was once such a beautiful cathedral. All over the city there are boarded up buildings scheduled for demolition, others for restoration, many empty lots where buildings once stood, and some new construction. Mike & Lona - are ...

    ... tunnel in the world. Oscar would recognise the engines. They are just like the one he got for Christmas. And Arthur's Pass was the epicentre of the earthquake 2 days ago. All quiet now though.

    After 5 hours we arrived in Greymouth....right on the other coast of NZ.
    Now it was time to pick up the hire car. That took some time. Who knew that a handbrake could be on the floor where the clutch normally is? ...

    ... ocean, under a canopy of native trees. While our tent is large for me and Josh, it is a tight fit for 6 adults. Luckily, our tent has two rooms and we all fit fine.

    Camping in New Zealand is pretty glamorous. Every campground has a kitchen for communal use. We made a delicious pasta dish with garlic bread and grilled asparagus. Josh and I have been cooking for two for so long, we forgot how long t takes ...

    ... in memory of the earthquake victims. We walked through blocks of condemned buildings and up through the city. The devastation was never ending and we seemed to be the only people walking with only a few cars about. After 10pm there is a "No Cruising" curfew in the city centre. You have to be either passing straight through or aiming for a specific destination. A culture of speeding boy racers through the ruins in the early hours led to a clampdown. We walked for miles ...

    ... over purpose built hills and into water to demonstrate the abilities of the vehicle. We also watched two 4D movies (a cruise of the Antarctic and Happy Feet). They were amazing. Even Alice kept her glasses on. She loved the bubbles, but not so much the water jets, which were aimed right at her, which I didn’t realise until after the movie. The poor girl was soaked!We left the centre, and defrosted outside whilst we had lunch, ...
