To Christchurch

We are leaving Australia today for New Zealand unfortunately there isn't a direct flight from Cairns so we have to fly to Sydney to pick up a flight to Christchurch, this makes it a 12 hour journey arriving in Christchurch at 23:55.

We are really looking forward to meeting up with our expat friends Keith and Pam while we are there.

Quaintarse wouldn't check us in as we didn't have a ticket out of NZ (it's a requirement that you have an exit ticket when you travel), we never plan that far ahead, so we bought a fully refundable ticket back to Sydney at the sales desk (mega expensive) I wont use it and when we decide to leave NZ we will get a refund and buy a cheaper ticket.
