Day 9: Last Day in Christchurch

This was our ninth and final day in New Zealand, the end of a great vacation.

We'd planned on the weekend market at the Arts Centre as well as the International Antarctic Centre for this day, but we decided to sleep in and have a leisurely breakfast instead.

After packing and a quick shower, it was across the street to the bus stop and off to the airport!

All in all we had a good nine-day itinerary, it was a fabulous trip around the South Island.

We enjoyed our stays in Christchurch, Fox Glacier, and Queenstown. Lake Matheson, Mount Cook and Lake Tekapo provided glorious views, our tandem bungy jump was the experience of a lifetime, and we'll have to come back someday to see Milford Sound and go kayaking at Abel Tasman.

Anyone else have good New Zealand travel stories to share?

hi mel!

thanks for the compliment!

it was a Canon Ixus 400 - one of those simple point-and-shoot ones. it's about 3 years old now and positively ancient by digital camera standards... the Canon customer service rep told us the camera's overdue for retirement but it's still working great. :)
