We were greeted with a cooked breakfast this morning, prepared lovingly by our host, Nick.
Set off for Hanmer Springs, it’s about a 2 hour drive away from Christchurch with some beautiful scenery along the way.
It was a hard day sitting in 38-40 degree hot spring pools. We did a few laps in the pool, but had more fun joining the kids on the lazy river!
Eventually dragging ourselves from the warmth of the springs we enjoyed a late lunch of fish and chips (fush and chups in kiwi) with the mountains as our backdrop.
Returning home to a roast chicken dinner (Nick looks after us!) we settled in for the evening and pretended to do some planning.
