Merry Xmas and happy boxing day

Merry Xmas bloggies ^^. It's my seventh day on my "going south trip" so far. I haven't had enough time and resources just to access internet since I took off from Sydney. Here's some updates of places I went so far, I haven't really process the raw pictures from my camera, so mostly here's just the glimpse of pictures I took with iPhone.

Day 1, 21.12.11. I spent it in Christchurch. A little disappointed after witnessing it with myself that half of the city is barricaded with fences and about to be demolished due to previous major earthquake that brought down this city. But I managed taking some shots anyway. Stayed in Canterbury House Backpackers with Japanese hosts Keiko. Shared my room with two girls one from Slovakia the other one from Slovenia. Somehow I cant remember their names tho, I think it was Mariette and Julia.

Day 2, 22.12.11. I rendezvous with Y the night before, she's been here for four days by now. And we decided to drive to Arthur Pass, Hokitika, then ended up in Franz Joseph.

forgot where it was, but before arthur's pass

Franz Joseph Glacier, I climbed
Day 3, 23.12.11. We took the first batch of half day ice trekking on Franz Joseph Glacier. Oh noted, the guide name Ben Murphy has a hot body and with mole on his face same spot as Enrique Iglesias (LOL). Somehow, there're a few rock fall during the glacier trekking that I had to make a few stops to avoid it. We then move to Lake Matheson and do the trekking around the lake to capture the glimpse of glacier. On the way back Seb message me to see if I were OK only to realise that Christchurch has been rocked by another two major earthquake. Lucky we left already. but what worries me is that I will be flying to north island from there and wondering if my accommodation still stand after the tremor.

Day 4, 24.12.11. We enroute to Queenstown. We made heaps and heaps more stops along the way because the scene is just getting pretty, prettier and prettier. Have I say pretty oredi? We ended up having a serious talk while having dinner over the sunset of Queenstown Lake. It's a pretty view. After four days, Y noted to me that she has been accepted me for who I am long time ago but now she has a much better understanding of where I coming from.

Day 5, 25.12.11. Merry Xmas everyone…. ^^. We started our day very early, and took Gondola up to the hill of the Queenstown. Y ride a paragliding while I just sit enjoying the view with my cup of coffee. We rode Luge up at the hill and then ride gondola downtown to get the car and drove to Glenorchy. After so many pretty beautiful sceneries, my expectation is too high and a bit disappointed with Glenorcy view. I enjoy the drive there tho the weather begins to get gloomy.
