Excursions and Local Attractions
The city in which I live in, offers an adventure playground to those of you who are interested in many different types of activities. There is beach walking along the beach where my house is situated. There are also many ski fields near Christchurch. Golf, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, kite boarding, is all available in and around Christchurch city. A one hour drive by car takes you to a town where you can go whale watching, and seal viewing. Two hours from Christchurch is a small town where you can sit in hot mineral pools. The trans alpine train journey is wonderful and travel from the East coast to the West Coast of the South Island.
