Our first week on New Zealand´s south island

First activities upon arrival in Christchurch

We were glad to arrive in Christchurch as this meant no more flying for the next four weeks. First of all, we were collected by the Jucy shuttle service and took over our camper van - a Jucy Condo suitable for four people and self-contained (prerequisite for freedom camping). After having set up the camper as our "new home", I was really glad to have chosen a camper suitable for four people. This way we could store our rucksacks and still move within the camper without having to relocate our bags all the time.

Especially when you are checked for drugs, it takes ages: Only about ten arrivals at a time have to stand in a line and put their luggage besides them.
