Arrived in Christchurch

We made it to Christchurch.

During our layover in Auckland we tucked into a travel agent and lined up aplace in Christchurch for the night and also shuttles from the airport and to the train station. We are staying at Charlie B’s Backpacker. Lua and I were lucky to score a double room as this week is New Zealand schools holiday. The first place we called was booked. Their holiday ends tomorrow so the rest of the trip should be easy enough to find a place. We have a double bed in our room, and thats about it. There are Co-ed community bathrooms, we still have private showers at least. We are about three blocks from cathedral square, were we went upon arrival as our room wasnt going to be ready until 1pm.
