Fly to Christchurch (18th flight so far).

Pick up a hire car (6th).

Go to a hotel (24th – has a great sunrise view, above).

Then explore Christchurch, full of charm and character but also really obviously showing the scars and reconstruction efforts following the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, most notably at the cathedral but also evident in all the empty spaces where there used to be buildings.
