This site has been created as a way of sharing with people, the interests a group of friends living in New Zealand's South Island city of Christchurch. As its turned out, we have inadvertently (at first) applauded the greater beauty of New Zealand and its attractions. It's often said that people don't realize what their country has to offer, and in New Zealand this would still be a fair assumption. For those involved in outdoor pursuits through-out New Zealand you'll know of the great diversity and opportunity's were presented with, for those not, perhaps we can encourage you to give something new a go.
Above all, for everyone visiting this site from far or near, we hope you enjoy the visit.
ABOUT US ?
Well firstly we live in New Zealand obviously, way
down in the South Pacific just past our Kangaroo cousins in Australia.
Next stop Antarctica.
Our Australian neighbors are sometimes referred to as
Kangaroo's, and we have the sometimes familiar nick name
of being called Kiwi's.
From the map below you'll see that Christchurch is
located in the South Island. To be biased, most people
living here will tell you its the nicest city in New Zealand. Everyone I know seems to
agree. Christchurch would
be the 3rd largest city and is known as the Garden City. This is due to its vast array of parks and natural
presence of river's. As for work, were a diverse bunch ranging
from mechanical to computers.
Firstly would be water sports, Scuba diving mainly, just love those Lobsters. However as a group we also enjoy Fishing, Tramping/Hiking and of course 4x4 driving. I guess anything to do with the outdoors appeals to us, I find there's nothing like something that gets you doing or going somewhere different.
During the mid year we also play competition pool (8 ball) for the local Cafe/Bar. As a group we've played for nearly 5 years and have achieved a 1st 2nd and 6th in 4 years. Hoping for similar again this year, but mainly aiming for first prize.
Over time we hope to publish quite a few photo's taken whilst we engage in our pursuits of Scuba, Fishing and 4x4 Trips around the fantastic coastline's and mountains of New Zealand.
We hope you all enjoy this site, and maybe one day you may just be tempted to take a detour down this way and experience New Zealand all for yourself..
New Zealand :
If you ever get the chance to visit either country, (Australia or
NZ) you wont be disappointed.
On a Yachting note some of you may know New Zealand
also holds the America's Cup.
For all you keen on outdoor action/adventure,
We've had the great pleasure of a week aboard a vessel
diving and fishing back in 1998. This was our first trip to Fiordland,
but will definitely not be the last!!!!Our next trip is scheduled for
