New Zealand Road Trip

Recommended Posts

i had a great time driving around, taking pics..

i didn't have much money so i didn't get to do any of their adventure stuff like bungee or skydiving.. i'll have to go back for that stuff one day.

My sister did her teachers college in Christchurch. brought a Kiwi boyfriend back with her. the earthquake made all the roads ribbed, which looked crazy in the pictures he sent. see any evidence of the earthquake?

there was actually tons of construction in christchurch, i would say downtown, every few blocks something was shored up or in the midst of some sort of repair. fucked up roads in some places too. outside of the city though it wasn't evident at all.

i was all psyched to feel an earthquake but no aftershocks (that i noticed) happened while i was there.

a taxi driver told me the city looked way different to him.

schnitzel said windscreen haha that is a dead giveaway someone isn't from the states.

i love the little differences.
