It took us some time to get up this morning. When we did it was time for
some major driving. We had to drive halfway up the west coast and
across the middle of the country back to Christchurch.
Arthur's Pass is the most beautiful road that I've driven along in New Zealand. The west coast is nice, but the road through the centre is brilliant. Again, there's stunning scenery, you know the story by now, mountains, snow, ice and rock and loads of it with bits of forest sprinkled around.
