New Zealand 2015

Methven, 27 March

 

  After takeoff, the plane circled around and we had an excellent view of Sydney ... *
  and towards the end of the flight, views of the NZ Southern Alps. *
  We picked up a rental car at Christchurch airport and set off. *
  About the only interesting sight between Christchurch and Methven is the valley of the Rakaia River. *
  *
  The main street of Methven: typical of NZ country towns. †

We stayed in Methven only because, with a mid-afternoon arrival, it would be too far to drive all the way to Mount Cook.
