Just a little over two weeks till we hit the (insert appropriate geographic adjective of your choice) shores of New Zealand!
Naturally the Junior Grendels are reaching fever pitch of excitement - I am nearing a heightened state of panic as I try to cram a final post-grad assignment and three weeks work into two weeks of office time.
On the upside, Google have recently upgraded the Google Earth Imagery for parts of New Zealand - including Christchurch and there are now some spectacular resolution shots of the CBD that really show why it is such a gorgeous place to visit - of course Googling it is never quite the same as being there, so I am doubly glad we don't have too long to wait.
Google Earth is fantastic for trip planning however and it has been a great tool for finding points of interest to add to the GPS.
This latest imagery is from 9 March and is as crisp as you could ask for:
