ARRIVING IN NEW ZEALAND!!!!!!

Before we began this part of our trip evryone we met in OZ said that NZ was just like England, if there was any place to be home sick this was the place, and so on. So when we got to Christchurch in Temperatures of 3 degrees C, rain (heavy rain), a little sleet, and some hail, we thought that everyone might have had a point!

However, one thing that was just ever so slightly different, at least from the point of view of people from Northampton, was the absolutely stunning scenery! When the only way to fly into one of the biggest (if not the biggest im not sure) cities in the South Island is by passing iver snow capped mountains then like England New Zealand aint!!!

For dinner Re and I decided to go out. On the reccommendation of the guy at our hostel; Stonehurst, we went to Winnie Baigo, a gourmet pizza place. One word; delicious! Nay two words friggin delicious!!!!!!!
