So we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary in New Zealand. Yes, we know it won't actually be 10 years until December. But, March worked out best for our plans. So our first day was really long from Sunday morning to Tuesday at noon flying. Seattle, LAX, Auckland, and finally Christchurch. The great thing was that flying standby, we caught every single flight we were hoping for. It really was amazing. After picking up our rental car, we drove out to our B&B which is called "Pete's Farmstay" It is 30 min out of town and on a cute farm with sheep, alpacas, and cows. After getting situated and freshened up, we drove to the small village and shared a lunch at a bakery cafe. Then we came back to the Farm and Pete showed us how he takes care of the animals, and gave us a sheep wrangling/sheering demonstration. That was so cool. Then we drove into Christchurch and familiarized ourselves with the town. Dinner was at a great Pizza place called Spagalimis. We shared a lamb pizza. Wow! It was amazing. After driving home we were exhausted and went straight to bed. Tomorrow is our Edoras Lord of the Rings tour. We are so excited.
