Road trip 2: Canterbury and Otago region 23-26 Jan 09 – Christchurch

The hotel we stayed






Bridge of Rememberance


Me waiting for my hot donut at Cathedral Square!


Christchurch Cathedral



Inside the Cathedral. Beautiful, isn't it?






We had our Chinese New Year Eve dinner with 3 cousins at a Chinese restaurant. It was really nice catching up with them. After the dinner, we decided to have a stroll at New Brighton beach. I really like the balmy and cool sea breeze this time of the day.


Colourful New Brighton bridge


Love the change of colours


On the 1st day of CNY, I donned on my bright fuchsia dress for a drive before flying back to Wellington.

Christchurch Cathedral is beautiful! I love old churches! There's something really majestic and romantic about them.

Love the bright red electric tram!
It would be lovely to get married in that church!

Doreen said...

oceanskies79:
Yeah, it is a famous landmarks in Christchurch.

EastCoastLife:
The church is very big, so has to be a big wedding to make full use of it. I would still prefer the small small church at Tekapo. Hehehehe
