    Yeah the only issue is cost of food and things in general.. it's incredibly high. But you get payed "better" so it all works out I suppose.

    It was an awesome hike though :)

    Definitely. Same situation in Australia (we lived there almost ten years before moving back to Canada).

    Awesome! I can't believe how much NZ looks like where I live!! Don't know if you've seen any of Stan's posts, but he lives there and I had to say the same the other day after seeing the photos of his home/property - so glad you're enjoying the beautiful surroundings, and nice to see Sky looking so happy and well cared for :)

    Christchurch is gorgeous I've heard! Sorry about those Earthquakes though :( I heard that left everyone in a poor place.

    Karori or Kelburn are the only "k" park names I can think of haha.
    Christchurch is a really lovely place - it used to be much lovelier than it is now. It had a very English feel to it, most of the older architecture was just amazing. It's a real shame 80% of that is all gone now :( Despite it all, I think Christchurch still has some real beauty left in it!

    The Earthquakes were terrible and people are still suffering greatly from them a year later. However there's new buildings popping up everywhere and they're clearing more and more damage away too... Christchurch is changing by the day, it's rather exciting to see!

    And you somehow "forgot" to take pics of them too? We'uns over on this side of the puddle would have enjoyed a good laught.
    Beautiful pics anyway though.

    Sky looks content. But he does kinda have a "Where's mum?" expression to him. (Sorry, I know that doesn't help.)

    I wish we had.. it was so funny! This entire family was watching this man take off all but his polo shirt and waddle into the water, before they stripped down and did the same!! Next time I will, haha

    That's alright, I'm happier with the situation than when I first came.. my bestie is keeping me updated and he's bringing her a lot of joy so :) it all works out. But I miss him something fierce. Shopping for him is really fun though! :)
