Tuesday Travels. . . .First day New Zealand

This is the first of a few posts on a trip to New Zealand late last year.

Upon arrival in New Zealand my husband and I went for a walk around the local area of our accommodation in Christchurch.  The first thing that caught my attention was this sign . . . I hadn’t heard that expression for a shopping trolley. I rather like the idea of a trundler rather than a trolley.

We also caught sight of the children leaving their local school in the afternoon.  The children are assigned to do crossing duty in New Zealand, closely supervised by an adult.

After a good night’s sleep, and the arrival of my sister and her husband, we headed off to Picton via Kaikoura.

At Kaikoura we had a delicious lunch at a seafood stall which had been there when my sister had visited many years previously.

The scenery is this area is stunning and was a great introduction to our trip in New Zealand.

Picton is the point where boats transfer vehicles to the North Island.  It is a very busy harbour and of stunning beauty.


Loved the last point in this sign.

    Wow! That was almost a year ago! We were hoping to get to NZ again soon, but that like any OS travel will have to wait. Great memories of our South Island trip.

      That time has just flown. I guess because the time has been so unusual. It will be good when we can eventually travel again, even if it is just to Melbourne or Canberra.
      We would love to return to New Zealand some time.

    Thank you presenting New Zealand. It is so far away from here where we live, that probably we never will visit it.

    Have a nice day!

      I don’t think there will be too much out of country travelling for a while yet.
