    The woman that owns this place is very friendly and so helpful. We got treated to an upgrade to the big double room. It was huge and included a sofa and TV area. The other rooms also looked good and we noticed them cleaning every morning.
    The kitchen is pretty small and basic, but then again the hostel itself can't accommodate many, so it's probably never too busy.
    Loved our stay here.

    ... at least a couple of hundred metres climb. Someone asked me what I thought of the hill ahead of us "that looks like a piece of ****" was my response. This has now become the standard description when we see the track ahead of us heading sharply uphill. On the positive side, we got our first views of Everest.

    Of course, we found another example of omnipresent war memorial, this time in the Little River Railway Station, a historic train stop turned into the ...

    Time to say goodbye, but also swim with Dolphins!

    ... the more they did it and the faster they went. It kind of made me rather dizzy. We spent around an hour in the water with the dolphins, but it was an incredible experience. I then headed back to Christchurch for my last night in the city and New Zealand and spent a large portion of the evening driving round the outer neighbourhoods and seeing the damage from the earthquakes, it was very sad to ...

In the evening we found the Lord of the Rings DVD and decided to check out all the places we'd visited from the films. It was quite cool watching Hobbiton having walked around the set ...

Popped the boot open and had dinner with a view from the comfort of our own bed and also made a pal (nicknamed Frenchie for obvious reasons).
