|Woke to the sun streaming through the window across the inlet, another beautiful day. A leisurely breakfast and finish packing and cleaning before setting off to the Maui depot next to the airport. We drove back along the road we travelled yesterday, still beautiful, and in Little River, we came across a 'silo city', someone had prepared grain silos for accommodation; they looked interesting but not sure they would be somewhere were we would spend the night.
We skirted around Christchurch and arrived at the Maui depot; it was chaos, it seemed everyone had come to return their vehicle and the staff just couldn't cope. We finally managed to grab someone and check out, jump on the airport shuttle and we were off.
So, farewell New Zealand, we had a great time, covered a lot of ground and thoroughly enjoying what we did and saw, though we discovered a lot more to do or see as we went round. We think we might be back!
