Darling little cottages,....with all the comforts of home. (Fireplace with fresh cut wood.). Be aware,.....if you don't have a car,......it's a good little walk into town,....but Kyle and his wife are incredibly helpful.
Loved this place!

An oasis of calm to recover from the long journey from London. Very well equipped with comfortable bed. Just a few minutes drive from Akaroa centre, but with wonderful views over the harbour. The only negative point was that the Wifi signal was not good, so we could not access our emails.

Akaroa and the Banks peninsula

... weeks! For a further 45 minutes we weaved along the climbing mountain road to 500m above sea level at the hilltop summit where we had some spectacular views for the Banks peninsula. This incredible land formation was once part of three volcanoes which slowly with time have been eroded by the sea to form some amazing green finger like projections surrounded by dark blue waters. The town of Akaroa itself was previously a French settlement and is a ...

Flying to Bangkok

... all of our bags arrived safe and sound on the baggage belt. Feeling slightly out of our depth we caught a taxi to our hotel 'Smile Society' in the district of Silom which is apparently known as the financial district by day and red light district by night, this took about 20 minutes and when we arrived we were greeted by a very nice woman who checked us and gave us our room keys. As it was 3am and we were all so so tired we headed straight to sleep. ...

Day 181 The washing up session at the beginning of today was one of the most challenging of our lives. We teamed up in the face of such a demanding task. The wind (accompanied by sporadic rain showers) was whipping washing up water onto the cushions in the back of the car. Ben had had to build a fort of cardboard boxes around the gas stove, which was tight against the car wheel, in a desperate attempt to boil some water. Our drive to Akaroa was an enjoyable one. What landscape we ...

Sad City and Banks Penisula

... if the house is to be knocked down or restored!!

I drove out to New Brighton, which had been a beautiful suburb before the quake but now it felt like a ‘ghost town’. Large empty spaces with piles of rubble where homes had been and the road surfaces were extremely uneven and quite a challenge to drive on unless you slowed right down to walking pace. The views were so frequent as you drove along, I did not have the heart to take any pictures except of the ...

Captain Cook's missed opportunity

... and past Stirling Falls. It seemed a lot bigger from the kayak than it did from the cruise liner yesterday. Tristan reckons it's three times taller than Niagara Falls, a fact I still haven't verified.

We stopped for a rest on a pebble beach further up the sound. I got talking to Tristan while we were there, he reckons he's the great, great, great, great, grandson of Captain James Cook. I'm not sure if it's true but if it is, it's a pretty cool thing to ...
