A few weeks ago I was planning to have a nice peaceful break after finishing uni , having some rest and relax time and part of that with was going to be spending a week or two in Christchurch with MD.
Due to the news that I told you about in ‘Disconnection’ that isn’t going to happen quite the way we planned. I am still heading for Christchurch but now it is to help MD pack up her house and move back up to live with us. Not so relaxing LOL. To give me some relax time I decided rather than fly down I would take the Tranzscenic train routes. So the plan is that I catch the “Overlander” train tomorrow morning at our local train station and travel down to Wellington. (Thanks UpsideBackwards for being my Wellington “uofficial tourism guide” and answering my queries) . I arrive in Wellington tomorrow evening and have got a place to stay only 5 minutes walk from the train station. I stay one full day (two nights) there, then catch the ferry across to the South Island. I stay Tuesday night with my cousin J2 and then take the “Tranzcoastal” train from Picton to Christchurch. I’m spending approximately a week in Christchurch and then flying home with Halo (MD’s dog) to be back just in time for my next Herceptin treatment.
Most of MD’s household stuff will be loaded on a furniture moving truck the day before I leave. MD will drive her car back up with her friends over the course of 3 days the following weekend.
I’m taking my laptop and will have internet access (via Tstick mobile broadband) while I am gone so look for blog updates and tweets letting you know of my adventures
