Images from Christchurch

I found this blog today of a couple called Ann and John who are visiting New Zealand - and they took some neat pictures of Christchurch, and also more over on the West Coast.

We were in the Cathedral for midnight service on Xmas Eve - was an amazing tree.
This is just for those of you who live overseas so that you can see more of New Zealand.
Many thanks to Ann and John :)


  1. Oh, so lovely. Loving the pictures.

    I have never been to New Zealand but I am most likely going there in the end of February. I have always, always wanted to go. Now it is my chance.

    I will just take my backpack, camera, books and come. No specific plans. I've got 5 days, and maybe I will go by Christchurch.

  2. Great idea -
    look at some of these places...

  3. Thanks so much for the link to the photos. We know so little about New Zealand in the USA, really. I fear most of us think of it as some sort of island part of Australia. Shame on us, of course.

    Lovely photos.


    This was SO helpful! You have no idea! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I will go one of those tours! Great. The best thing is to learn the places to visit from locals. You will see then most probably see the best bits.

    I know it is going to be a very short trip, but I will concentrate on 1 or 2 things. And enjoy! It is so beautiful over there.

    Did I say Thank you!

  5. Thank you Suldog - and you are right! However, if you check out Pienovski's blog, see her name in the comment after yours, I can say that I feel very humble about how little I know of Europe / Asia. I am learning it all gradually from her wonderful pictures and descriptions.
    I have also been making an effort to visualise where places are in Britain, the USA and Canada, mainly through the blogs I follow.
    I think it does us all good to broaden our horizons. :)


Comments welcome....always love to hear what you think!
