Departure Day

This morning we left the house at the crack of dawn (really - 7.15am) to head to the airport to fly to Christchurch. We arrived about 2.30pm and were collected by a very nice man with a van big enough to carry 10 passengers. He drove us to our hotel - the George Hotel - and give us a bit of a tour of the city on the way.

In the afternoon we went for a walk along the Avon River, which winds through the park that is in the middle of Christchurch. It was right opposite our hotel and very nice. It's a pretty city, remind me a lot of an English village (only bigger).

We decided late to have dinner in the hotel but there were a lot of people in the restaurant so it took AGES for us to get our food. I think the waitress knew we were annoyed because we got free dessert. My meal was nice, which made it not so bad.

No photos today because I didn't think to take the camera on our walk. Silly, I know.
