Going down a very slippery slope

... Saturday and skiing on a Sunday. The ski field was in a gorgeous setting, surrounded by orangey-brown hills and little else. I hadn't been skiing in years but I figured it was like riding a bike and immediately hopped onto the T-bar to hit the slopes. This was an unwise decision. The first part of the run was nice and wide, meaning I could take my time over dodgy snow plough turns. Unfortunately, the lower part was a narrow, windy route ...

Road Trip - So We've Come, to the End of the Road

... morning with seals, we continued to stop along the coastline to snap more pictures and observe the wondrous creatures. We grabbed lunch in the town, and then headed inland for Hamner Springs.

We left Christchurch this morning to collect our van, our new home for the next two weeks. Quite sad to leave Christchurch but curious to see more of this amazing countryside. Our taxi driver, to the camper van, told us about the earth quake. It was really bad east of the city, apparently the. area where he lives was with-out water for 16 days and with-our power for 28 days. There was even a small movement a few weeks ago. Great!! The camper is quite big, lots of space to store ...
