Canterbury Museum

This was taken few months ago. It’s amazing to see this place in different colours. There was a light show and these colours extended inside the Hagley Park. Our kids enjoyed watching the dancing colours on the trees.

Tunnel Beach, NZ

This place is stunning. It is close in Dunedin, the southern part of New Zealand. Credits to my husband for taking this photo

(Interesting Info from dunedinnz.com)

It feels like you are in a Victorian novel and visit the stunning and evocative Tunnel Beach, where in the 1870’s John Cargill, a son of Captain William Cargill, excavated a tunnel down to a secluded beach so that the Cargill families could bathe in privacy away from the prying eyes of St Clair. The beach has massive sandstone boulders, mysterious graffiti carved into the cliffs and a dangerous rip that sadly drowned Cargill’s youngest daughter.

Wigwam Motel

The idea of cozy cone motel operated by Sally from Pixar “Cars” movie comes from the Wigwam motel. It was a surprise trip as we didn’t plan to come here. The artist from McDo Museum (1st McDo site) told us to visit this place. It’s amazing because they are still operating up to now. This place was built around 1930s. 
We went inside since we were curious how an 80 year place looks like.

  • All the shops, it’s hard to choose on what to buy.
