Although I was working remotely while in NZ, I was fortunate enough to take a couple of days off to make the most of the time there, and spend as much time with Kazimir as possible. Following a very relaxed night away in Hanmer Springs, we spent the rest of our long weekend closer to home, and enjoying more of what the city of Christchurch has to offer. Having spent a little time in the city last year, I knew of a few spots that I liked already, but the benefit of having my very own local tour guide meant I was lucky to get the inside knowledge on all the top recommendations.
On a particularly sunny weekend and after spending time hanging out with a few friends, we took a meandering walk through the streets of the city, stopping off for the occasional drink, bite to eat, or sit down in the sunshine. Seeing as this trip was also my first chance to really test out my new Canon 1300D camera, here are a few of my favourite snaps from our time in the city!
Christchurch is a wonderful little city with a fantastic personality. The many unique street art murals and efforts of refurbishment are a testament to that, and the character and feel of the city really stands out to me. It goes to show just how awesome this place is!
