Bryan from Christchurch
We didn’t do much today – Bethany and I are both coming down with colds, so we aren’t too energetic.
We spent several hours booking transportation, accomodation and activities for the next week. New Zealand has a great network of tourist information sites that are very helpful booking these sorts of things.
Today was also a national holiday so the i-site was very busy and many stores were closed. We were lucky and did find a silk double sleeping bag liner – we’ve been looking for one of those for years!
We had one major piece of bad luck today – Bethany’s fancy new lens that she bought for the trip broke today while the camera stores were closed. And today was the last time we’ll be in a major city for a while. And the big advantage of this particular lens is that we’d only need one lens.
