    ... in a tiny vehicle. Kevin was pretty small and there's only a certain amount of time you can live in a tiny space with each other. But it's all gone surprisingly smoothly and we've only gone the wrong way a few times due to Chelsea's terrible navigational skills! I don't think too many couples can live in a tiny campervan for six weeks but we've managed to survive and still be together at the other end... Just!

If you pay the top price, you also get a ride in a ...

    ... to the Jailhouse Accommodation I was staying in as it was a little out of town.

    A lot of people had said there wasn't anything to do in Christchurch and it wasn't worth visiting but I felt it was an important place to visit.

    ... travelling. This blog will be a take you on an overview of our 'Vera Adventures' journey of South Island. We set off from the depot and before not to long we quickly began to witness the dramatic transition from the gentle farmland north of Christchurch to the Kaikoura coastline.
