Wrapping up in Christchurch

Yesterday we farewelled Rick and Pam who were entering airline hell in Dunedin. Sometime in the subsequent 24 hours they should be back home in Seattle. 

Then we drove to Christchurch along the main highway which would have been fairly unpleasant touring given the traffic. We dropped Johan off with the friends he was going to stay with for a bit and me at the hotel.

I left the trike at the Adventure South depot because I couldn't face cleaning it yesterday. Instead I spent the afternoon just... wandering around Christchurch on foot.

This morning I walked over to the depot to strip, clean, and bag the trike. I'm expecting Australian customs to be at least as feral as NZ customs when it comes to bikes (and rightly so!!!!), so cleaning it now was necessary.

Then I came back to the hotel and tested out the wireless capabilities of the laptop for the very first time. Since these posts are getting to the journal (Days 20 - 22 are now up) I guess its working. I may get some photos posted over the next couple of days.

Now that the trike is bagged and in storage at the hotel I can relax and maybe do some normal touristy stuff in Christchurch, I'll see how things turn out. 

I definitely want to come back and tour again with Adventure South. Anyone interested in a ride next year? Say, February/March?
