17.01.2013 - 19.01.2013
Our arrival in Christchurch is at 5 am and the flight from Melbourne took just over 3 hours.
Before starting off with our campervan, we have one and a half days in town. Unfortunately the city is still quite destroyed aft the earthquake in 2011 and a big part in the centre is fenced off. Especially the tower of the old cathedral is missing in the impressions you were supposed to get from town. On the other hand there is now a temporary town centre made from containers in which the city life is pulsating on nice days.
More impressions on our destination for the next 2 months will follow soon.
As usual you can read this and other articles with more pictures as well on my travel blog.
