Christchurch, New Zealand

I made my first ever visit to New Zealand last week, and fell in love with the country. The most beautiful scenery, friendly people and so much to see and do for tourists.

I landed in Christchurch on the south island, a city of just 400,000 people, but so beautiful and cool, with grand old buildings. Its very British/European

I start off around Cathedal Square

the south island was settled by many Scots, so there is quite a Scottish influence

I ended up in a bar near here, after one of the local forumers - Milan Luka, took me on a walking tour/pub crawl of the city. Was a great afternoon
