We were up at a decent time as we had to leave the apartment at 10:00.
Curtis got some admin done in the morning before we all got ready and left.
We drove just down the road to the centre of Oamaru. In the centre, we saw a steam train and then the Steampunk HQ. This is where there is a big building with all Steampunk related items inside.
We spent a while there and saw a lot of odd and wonderful items!
There was an outside section in which we were able to mess around on things, including going inside the big bus.
Inside the bus, there was a ‘white room’. This room was a 10 minute projection of what was basically a bunch of optical illusions and music.
We left here and had a wander around the town. There were a lot of antiques and steampunk items around, which was good to kill some time.
We got back in the car and drove on towards Christchurch.
We stopped in Timaru for some food and then got back on the road to Christchurch.
We got to our apartment and relaxed, getting a chinese takeaway for dinner and watching TV.
We stayed up and watched the Auckland fireworks for the new year and then went to bed.
Happy New Year!
