My first New Zealand 1 : Akaroa

Now I am back home from fantastic New Zealand.  12 days were too short to cover South Island but I believe our itinerary was planned very well.  🙂

Anyway, I took a lot of photos and am excited at posting some of them in here.

We arrived at Christchurch at night and went to Akaroa next day.

Akaroa was colonized by France and England.  The small town remained a lot of flavor of France which you could see in outlook of shops,  fire station and so on.

The weather was far to ideal for sightseeing, but while taking a cruise boat for inner harbour, lights were back.   Anyway, it will be great if you enjoy!

There were number of seals nested on the lower cliffs, but it was hard to capture them from the boat and with my photo skills…

Thank you for stopping by.
