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.

  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.

  4. YOU ARE A STAR!

    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. :)
