On Day 15 we made our way to the last stop of this trip: Akaroa. Just over an-hour drive from Christchurch, Akaroa is a lovely resort town featuring rugged farmlands and beautiful harbors. The town is situated on the Banks Peninsula, which is a crater formed by volcanic eruption some ten million years ago. The area today still has a strong sense of French settlement with some fun history to learn about - I'll write about that again later. This photo was taken right from our bedroom hut at Onuku Farm Hostel, the most exotic place we stayed in during the trip. At 4 pm, lying in bed after unpacking, the wind was very strong creating a loud noise. The hut then stared to shake for a while and we felt a bit insecure, understanding it was because of the wind. Not until the following day that we learnt that an earthquake was occurring in Kaikoura at the time. #akaroa #onukufarmhostel #bankspeninsula #ccchasingsheep
