After returning from Fiji we arrived in Christchurch and checked into a hostel for a few days. Whilst there we visited the Botanical Gardens and Cathedral Square which were both really nice. There were loads of nice shops, cafes and bars in the City. The highlight of our time here was watching a Super 12's rugby match at Jade Stadium between the Crusaders and the Chiefs. It was a fantastic evening, the atmosphere and the entertainment were far better than most sporting events in England. As we are running out of time and money we decided to leave the South Island for another time as we want to be here in the winter time so we can enjoy the great skiing and other winter activities. So this will be our next holiday destination once we have saved some money when we return. So we decided to head onto Australia as soon as possible.
