First stop on our New Zealand trip was Christchurch. We stayed here for two nights before moving on to Queenstown.

I hadnโ€™t heard too many positive things about Christchurch sadly, therefore I had no expectations. I know it had been hit by a pretty big earthquake a few years ago and there had been a couple of mass shooting incidents a couple of years ago that were pretty bad. However, we wanted to see this city for ourselves and itโ€™s a good gateway to the south of the South Island.

Christchurch is situated in the South Island. You can disregard all those flags, these were some of my points of interest for our trip.

I am really glad we decided to stay in Christchurch as it is an amazing city with lots of culture, art, has a vibrant hospitality scene and the warmest and friendliest people. It does have a sense of still recovering from its recent troubles and it was pretty quiet here, perhaps as itโ€™s winter also but we really enjoyed our short time here. There was plenty to see and discover and Iโ€™m sure we only managed to scratch the surface.

Of course we managed to find a great Irish pub, The Little Fiddle โ˜˜๏ธ

If you have the chance to travel to New Zealand, be sure to check out Christchurch too. Itโ€™s a beautiful city with lots of heart and character.

Thanks for taking a look at my post. Next post will be from Queenstown ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.
