Day 8 – Driving to Christchurch

The road goes ever on and on.

As expected, today was just a travel day, with a few short stops along the way to Christchurch. One of the stops was along the coast where a large number of seals lie about on the rocks, so we had a chance to take some photos there.

After that, we drove a short distance to have lunch (I had a mediocre burger), and then we did the last leg of the journey to our hotel near the Christchurch Airport, watching Two Towers on the way. There was also a LotR quiz in the morning to help pass the time.

For dinner, I walked down to a nearby Indian restaurant. Chicken Tika Masala. Good, not great.

Tomorrow we go to Edoras! I hope the weather is clear – very excited for it!
