The last day of the trip was spent touring the earthquake devastated city of Christchurch. The whole downtown center was shut off due to the extensive damage experienced in the historic earthquakes of 2011. It was sad and humbling to see so many businesses and homes completely destroyed. Makes you very thankful to have a healthy, loving family.
After our city tour and an utterly disappointing visit to the Antarctic Center (a museum dedicated to the Antarctic), we went to a great Thai restaurant for our last meal together on the trip. The brotherly camaraderie was stronger than it’s ever been before. The trip was a true bonding experience and I’m more thankful than ever to have such dependable and caring brothers. Cheers to the most memorable trip to date!
