Christchurch is where I entered New Zealand for the first time. I had several days here before departing for Antarctica. When I returned from the 'Ice', I stayed here for two more days before heading North.
Lyttleton is a quant harbor town only 12km from Christchurch. It is historically Christchurch's shipping port.
Once I returned from Antarctica, I head north from Christchurch and my first stop was Kaikoura for a night. It's a great place for whale watching, and for feeding seagulls and seals.
From Picton, I took the ferry from the South Island to the North Island and ended up exploring Wellington for two days. Here I got my 'capitol photo.'
I rented a car in Wellington and took a quick drive up the East coast to Art Deco themed Napier This town was flattened by an earthquake in the 1930's, and was rebuilt in the 'current' architectural style.
An overnight stay in Taupo allowed me to finally Bungy Jump and relax on the lake.
A weekend stay with Pam & family in the Waikato Region was relaxing and comfortable.
During my visit, Pam and I took a quick roadtrip to Rotorua to try ZORBing. Ever heard of it? It's a fun and simple adventure.
Then I moved North to Auckland for a two day urban exploration. From here I departed back home.
