Hazel finished with Kahlua and white chocolate cheesecake whilst I tried a dessert pizza topped with apple, apricot, berries, crumble, cinnamon and custard. Despite the nice ingredients neither of us were terribly impressed. At least the Diet Coke was okay!! Tomorrow we go on our main train journey; The TranzAlpine Express to Greymouth on the west ...

      Where to go for a few days? Well a couple of years ago we were parked by Lake Tekapo when a UTE pulled up and a friendly face asked “Was that Mike Clancy's bus?”. Yes

      Drove to our final east coast city today. Christchurch, the first settlement in NZ, was hit by earthquakes in 2010 & 2011 causing extensive damage and killing 185 people.
