I debated over to take the Hop on Off bus for 35 dollars or the city sponsored bus which is also hop on hop off for 10 dollars and the pass is valid for two days...Glenn the greeter tour gentleman I had on Tuesday suggested the latter and that is the tour I took this morning and afternoon.
For 10 dollars for a two day pass the bus covers thirteen stops throughout the city with a great commentary and I really enjoyed myself....the photos are not great as I took most out of the bus windows!!
The tour was great and afterwards I went suitcase shopping. I broke both zips on my suitcase when I came from Christchurch so I went to a couple of stores before buying a very good Samsonite soft sided large suitcase which comes with a 10 year warranty!!!
Did not get home till gone 6pm so cooked some dinner and had another night of watching live tennis from about 20 minutes from my apartment!!
