Where I stayed
Okains Bay Campground
We then headed off to explore the peninsular and drove on to Akaroa the main town here. The French actually landed here first and the town holds this French theme to its roots (we even saw school kids playing petanque). So whilst all the street names are Rue Grande or whatever and the signs are mostly in French, there is not a French accent to be heard. We had a good walk around town, which is very quaint, before settling down for a pot of tea in a place with free wifi (at least we have the code now so can park outside it in the van pull the curtains and hack the wifi without spending £2.50 on a pot of tea
When we got back we cooked up a packet of pasta (not a big packet the pasta’n’sauce type things which filled us up for a few hours. We listened to yet more Spanish and continued with our eat up before we have to give the van back. Tonight we finished the remnants of our pate and watched a film. It is starting to get a bit weird knowing that in a couple of days we will no longer have the Gimp or any an for that matter. The prospect of huge dorms is starting to weigh on our minds but at least we feel like we are getting our plan together. We just need to start spending and picking up the cheap flights before the prices go up. Some of the flights are only £20 more than a 40 hour bus journey so we need to take advantage of those while we can.
We finished off our last bits of wine and had a few gin and cokes (again it is eat up and drink up time so the combinations may just get odder and odder).
