    ... only reached the French settlers when they reached their journey's end to find the Union Flag hanging above their new home! Thankfully, Anglo-French relations over Akaroa were very friendly and the settlers were able to make a modestly successful life for themselves on the newly-British peninsula. Today, many of the road and business names are French and the village has a Catholic church. However, the French link is probably also heavily promoted for the sake of tourism. Next ...

    ... to stay in (all of which didn't have electricity). We stayed in the main hut where there was a small kitchen, a living room with a fire place, two rooms with bunk beds and one loft with two beds.

    ... in, we walked to the centre of Christchurch. First we went to the Re:Start shopping centre which from a far looked like a big building site. There were chain linked fences around and builders in hi vis jackets and boots. It was surrounded by shipping containers but Sam explained that they were actually part of the 'pop up' mall.
