So my short but intense road trip around the southern kiwi island has begun. It started off on the rails though... In order to get from the West Coast to Christchurch to pick up my wee rental car, I needed to make my way across the isle. On of the options for doing so is by the TranzAlpine Railway. It is by no means the most inexpensive way to cross the country but it was a beautiful journey on a beautiful train carriage.

I arrived in Christchurch in time for a rose gold sunset and I thought it was just the kind of city I needed to see after breaking up with the bush. There is just so much to see; I had over an hours margin from leaving my hostel to make the 20 minute walk to the car dealer, yet I struggled to make it on time as I had to stop around just about every corner to have a peak. Very excited to be exploring more of Christchurch as I return for the weekend.
