    ... we wouldn't have wanted to stay in it for any extended period of time. At least our winter clothes were holding up! We then watched a shortened 4D showing of Happy Feet (when we got our tickets the receptionist gave us a free showing). Bits of it were quite cool, such as splashes of water and bubbles floating towards us during underwater scenes. The chair jolting however was not welcome and Nicole kept getting sprayed right on the nose! After the film it was nearly time to watch ...

    ... it was so far away they organised for us to go to the Queenstown hospital which was really nice. I was lying in the Queenstown hospital bed for about 1 hour before a nurse came and took my neck brace off. Another half an hour after that the nurses came and rolled me over to check my back. Everything was fine so they didn't worry about x-rays. They told me to slowly get up and see how i felt. I got up went the bathroom and then we asked them ...

    ... Geraldine and we arrived in Christchurch late afternoon. It took quite a while to find the hotel as many of the streets are blocked off as a result of the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 that devastated this city.

    A magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck the Canterbury Region in New Zealand's South Island at 12:51 pm on Tuesday, 22 February 2011 local time. The earthquake was centred 2 kilometres west ...

    ... for everyone and I know I will be back to explore it further! In terms of lows and highs, the latter far outweighs the former! When I list 'a round of poor frisbee golf' as the low you know you've had a pretty amazing time! It's hard to quantify favourites, etc but I will try! Favourite Place 1. Queenstown - need I say more! 2. Taupo - Barbary Bill and a pub quiz combined with a beautiful lake 3. Kaiteriteri - short but sweet. Crazy golf and a hilarious night in our ...
