After our flight to Christchurch, we travelled to Akaroa, a harbour town which was briefly colonised by the French - but not for long. It has a distinctly French feel to it's architecture and street names but is a calming smart place to visit. We had Grabone vouchers for Black Cat's Harbour Nature Cruise and were fortunate to spot dolphins and …

Better Than Winter

So, for a while now, I have been thinking that one of the things I am looking forward to in the US is it finally being winter (or I guess technically late fall, for you perfectionists – and I know you are out there) – I'm just talking cold weather.

    Right on main street you can't get any more convenient. The staff is very friendly and the home, though not big, has more room outside in a beautiful garden setting. The owners are hands on and frequently on site. They have plenty of staff to take care of all guests requests.

    really nice hostel- no locks on the doors but the whole area is basically enclosed. Really nice staff except for one American bitch. Otherwise, good atmosphere and really nice quarters for hanging out.
