      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.

      ... We drove up to Porters Pass and hiked up to Foggy Peak and Castle Hill Peak along an open, easy ridgeline. There was no distinct trail but the lack of trees on the eastern slopes makes travel easy and views excellent. From the top we could see east to Christchurch and Banks Peninsula; south to Aoraki; west to the high mountains of Arthur’s Pass; and north to the distant Seaward Kaikoura ranges. There was hardly any wind on ...

      Hello all my lovely people my travels have started and started well I must say. First stop on the way to the airport was Nando's with my mate Rus and then easiest check in as I did it online last night which also meant I chose my seat.....window obviously, or though I wasn't as lucky on my Dubai to Christchurch flight. Oh well it's better than never. Also on seating arrangements I picked the best as I am currently lay across 3 seats as no one else is on my row. So ...

      Whale Watching

      ... 10 miles out to sea in what seemed to be no time at all. We stopped in the whale area and the crew checked for whales using an underwater microphone. By this time, we were all out on deck and suddenly the boat took off towards a whale they had spotted on the surface. The boat travelled very fast and we all had to hang onto the railings tightly. The first whale dived just before we reached it so all we saw was the blow of water and a splash as it disappeared. But ...

      After our second night in Christchurch Don and I were up early and headed to Akaroa, a peninsula formed by an ancient volcanic crater. We had to drive up the outside of the volcano before descending to the pretty port village on the inside. Don and I found the Holiday Park there and pitched the tent for the first time. Our good continued with the locals experiencing the best days of the summer so far. The walk to the village from the ...
