Well, our last few days in New Zealand involved a lot of realaxing which was great as we have had a pretty jammed packed time since arriving six weeks ago. We spent three nights in Kaikoura doing some last minute shopping, treating ourselves to a feast at the fish'n'chip shop, catching up on some time in front of the TV as well as wandering along the coast & looking at the many fur seals catching some Z's.
A quick drive south landed us in Christchurch and it was within the hour that we felt our first aftershock from the recent earthquake. A 5.1 on the ricter scale had our campervan shaking and moving..... (Needless to say, Ste grabbed the wine and jumped out the door - leaving Gemma to fend for herslelf. Priorities!!!) We spent our afternoons wandering the city, exploring the sights & looking at the pockets of destruction on many buildings while our evenings were spent getting many different types of take-aways & polishing off more bottles of wine than we can remember. From here we would finish our trip in New Zealand n return to Oz for another few months!!!
