Christchurch 1

7 Feb. Not a great night’s sleep in the Carlton Mills Hotel; need to get back to bush sleeping! Nothing wrong with the comfortable hotel room. The hotel has a guest laundry, so with the first laundry load I had a full breakfast at Vic’s just down the road.

On my 45 min walk to the Bivouac outdoor gear store for some tramping items, I got a grade 2 haircut from Mike at “My Fathers Barber”. Should last me a month.

Bivouac didn’t have the aerosol gas canisters I needed, but fortunately a nearby Bunnings Store did. What would a blokes shopping trip be without a wander around the Bunnings aisles. 😊

Went to the cinema with a friend to see the new film For Sama, which documents people’s struggle to survive in Aleppo. The resilience of people under such conditions is unbelievable . Worth seeing, but it is very very raw!

    1. Saw quite a few wild goats in the Richmond Range. Fantails (piwakawaka) and the South Island Robin (toutiuwai) have kept me company on the trails.
