    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.

    Akaroa is a small volcanic town around 85km away from Christchurch, a beautiful small town with a very French feel to it. The name Akaroa is Maori for 'long harbour' and that pretty much sums up the town situated a long harbour. We really enjoyed going here, they have some of the best salmon on the island so it ...

    ... hillscape across the water. On our way back to the car, we walked up the pier and popped into St Patrick's church, with its unusual, green, pointy, corrugated roof. At dinner time, we got to know Katie and Brianna, two American college friends who have been touring around New Zealand. Fenton was parked up in French Bay and was in fact surrounded by French people in their cars on either side. Akaroa is a wonderful little place and we are very pleased we came out of our way to visit ...

    ... back up the hill to our van. It decided to chuck it down for the rest of the afternoon and evening, so spent a happy time reading and playing cards. We observed that it was the first free time we had had since arriving in New Zealand. We also spent a bit of the day packing our bags and sorting out the van for returning it ...

    ... off the scruffmobile at 9am and we had the rest of the day to ourselves. We took a bus into the centre of Christchurch for a look around. I have to admit to being a bit ignorant about the history of this city, I knew there had been an earthquake here, a really serious one but I had no idea how bad it was. It really rocked this city to the core. It was pretty confronting to see the destruction it caused in the central business district. There are ...

    ... with spring lambs and cherry blossom (and rather bizarrely, alpacas which grazed in Chris and Anna's paddock). Then, on a gloriously clear sunny day, we drove up through the centre of the South Island towards Nelson and then up over the Marble Mountain (location for many scenes in Lord of the Rings) and down the other side into Golden Bay and Takaka. My uncle Bob and auntie Tillie arrived here in the early fifties to make ...
