Nothing beats a lovely walkabout in the city when the sun is out in Christchurch, especially when the city is a mere 45-60 minutes walk away – combining exercise and sightseeing is nice 🙂 Apparently we did almost 12,000 steps!

There’s also a trendy new eatery place that’s opened called The Welder. It’s established in a block of repurposed industrial buildings (something that’s very popular these days for that naturally rough, industrial look). I feel so old when I go in – everyone seems to be so trendy and hip in there! Even the food’s pretty trendy… carrot muffin with some sort of homemade hummus and spinach topping (I think… can’t remember now!), and the hot chocolate had some sort of spice sprinking (I think it’s cinnamon).
