Christchurch is laid back, much slower lifestyle than Jersey, and I think, maybe even parts of Indiana. We're loving the summer events like The Wind in the Willows, an outdoor play in the river, pretty cool. Even with the devastation from the earthquakes, the rebuild has turned something pretty difficult into an opportunity to be creative and innovative.
Eventually, I want to end up in the country, small farm house outside a city would be sweet. But for now, we're happy in the city, within walking distance of our favorite Thai and able to bike everywhere.
Technically, only two weeks left of summer so living up NZ iced coffees (left photo). Come visit, and we'll go get one.
