Yet another holiday that flew from conception to fruition in a very short space of time. We had been wanting to explore the South Island for quite some time - prior visits had seen us constrained to the city centers, more or less. This time, when the opportunity presented itself, we managed to find some cheap flights and a cheap rental car, and drew up a rough iinerary of places we wanted to see.

Special thanks go to Heather and her flatmates in Christchurch; Verity in Dunedin; and Greg & Kathleen in Queenstown, all of whom were good enough to allow us a bed and a roof. If it weren't for you, our going would probably not have been feasible.
