Roadtrip Day One: Wellington - Nelson - Kaikoura - Christchurch

On day one we woke early, flew to Nelson and picked up a car to drive all the way down to Christchurch. Here are some pics - spectacular scenery!!

Nelson - gorgeous!!

The bf and his uni friend from the Bahamas!

There was JUST about room for me with all the bags ;)

Rear cooler - is it just me that finds this funny?!

Coffee break in a random little town

The loos - I actually walked in on a middle-aged lady doing her business - UGH!! Lock the door lovey!!!

Lunch at Kaikoura

Me waving at my shadow!!! Hahahaha

Our car and views over Kaikoura

It was dark by the time we arrived in Christchurch!
What a busy day we had!

Our friend Ed from the Bahamas is now in hospital with toxic tonsillitis - OMG!!!!! He has been there 24 hours and they are letting us know if he is to be released later this evening. He is due to fly back to the US on Sunday so fingers crossed he has recovered by then!
