    Landing in Christchurch

    December 18, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    We landed early at roughly 12:30ish and got a great view of the mountains as we came over from the west coast and the Canterbury plains. We got to see the Antarctic c-130/ Hercules from the USAF that's used to fly people to the Antarctic. It was easy to get through the check out because we were from the UK we could just scan our passports meaning we could skip the queue. Customs only checked our boots and luckily didnt care about my wasabi peas...... We met Ali just out of customs and she drove us back to the motel where jill was waiting. We all had a catch up before heading down into Christchurch where the damage of the earthquake was still evident. Ali and jill showed us a small little restaurant that was the old bank and uses tubes to send you your food which was very cool. I had fish and chips.
