    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.

    ... with Karen and Jan. The head wind was a little challenging but we soldiered on with a couple of rehydration stops. We couldn't believe how warm it was, really quite muggy. Tim was waiting to load our bikes and a few others chose to hop on as well as yesterday's steep sections 'knackered' (yesterday's word!) them. Up, up and around the sweeping upward bends we drove, shouting out encouragement to our intrepid fellow cyclists as we passed them! At the TOP ...

    ... Road into Christchurch, winding over the hills above the Akaroa Harbor. (That’s right, Tourist Road! They know which side their bread is buttered on.) We were treated to the “breathtakingly scenic” views of the harbor below. Again, we were lucky to have good weather.

    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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    The weather just keeps on getting worse!! We're all exhausted today so spent the morning relaxing and sorting through all of our stuff - we discovered that Nia has already grow out of the summer clothes & shoes that we've brought for Australia! In the afternoon we spent time with Helen's ex EZI colleague from 11-12 years ago. Nia had fun playing with her three ...

    ... original French architecture had survived and road names that were given have stuck.Being in such a French inspired town, we did the very typical English thing, of having fish and chips by the sea. And good fish and chips they were. So good in fact, we couldn’t eat all the chips we had been given, and thought it would be a good idea to feed the seagulls the leftovers. It was like a scene from Alfred Hitchcocks ‘The Birds’. Seagulls swooped in from every which direction ...
