I booked this motel online because I wanted something close to the Airport since we were arriving after midnight. The Motel shuttle was waiting for us when we cleared customs (about 12.30am) which was lovely as we were very tired. The room could do with some updating but was clean and comfortable and good value. The motel staff were very nice. We only stayed one night but I would recommend this motel as a budget place to stay near Christchurch Airport.

... a bit tired of the superlatives we throw out, and they probably lose their effect the more we use them, but the drive was full of mountainside-lakes and incredible horizons, with the final hour or so into Franz Josef becoming a dense sub-alpine forest as we entered ‘glacier-country’.

... towels... The Works. The guy sitting next to me was based in Auckland and we chatted a bit before takeoff. It turns out his sister is a stage manager in Christchurch! A fun coincidence.
Landing in New Zealand, I felt such a rush of giddy excitement. I can't believe I'm really here, I'm really doing this.
I took a cab from the airport to my lodging, The Grange, a tiny B&B/Motel in central Christchurch. I ...
... we agreed. But as w settled back into our luxury accommodation (not!) i reflected on just what an impact our very own Sir Ed has hand on the Sherpa people. And it seems that all the change that he has brought to the region has been done with total respect for their unique culture. I think when we get back to Kathmandu and can have a beer again we will definitely raise a glass to Sir Ed and the amazing bond he has created between NZ and ...
... back - assuming that someone had to go into the kitchen to take it out, maybe they'll go into the kitchen today too and realize that it's not just a take-anything-you-want kind of kitchen?
Anyways. I think another excursion to the grocery store might have to happen today. Currently still waiting for Ryan to get up, but I've got a good amount of stuff to do before we head out to see Christchurch so not too concerned about when exactly that happens.
