Up early after a sleepless night in Christchurch ready for the next stage of my journey. I travelled to Kaiapoi where I stopped at the supermarket to stock up on water, fruit and a muffin. Off on the road trip to Kaikoura. Gorgeous drive - especially in and around Kaikoura. AMAZING lunch on the beach - seafood chowder and a very nice coffee. Great walk up the street and walk along the beach.
