Christchurch it is

The last couple of weeks felt like being a judge of a city contest. Timaru – dismissed! Ashburton – good performance! Auckland – failed the finals! Truth is, we didn’t travel across NZ to get soaked by its beauty, no, we tried to find a good place to live, a city that suits our needs. And the winner is… Christchurch! Maybe it was love at...

Auckland from above

… and up we go!

Don’t freak out, please! Neither because of the height nor because of Mr. Wonka in the background. 😅

Needless to say we took part in this great adventure and followed an entertaining and well-informed tour guide through...
