We stopped for morning tea at Little River, which is also the name of a town near our home in Victoria. Approaching Akaroa, we passed French names such as Duvauchelle and signs to French Farm and Le Bons Bay.

Akaroa is every bit as pretty as Paihia and Russell, if not prettier. If you can’t get to the top end of NZ, then you must at least visit Akaroa. The abundance of French flags, Rues (streets) and tall, volcanic peaks might make you think you have been transported to French Polynesia, but thankfully the people there don’t speak with a French accent or speak French.

Is this Akaroa, NZ, or Bora Bora?
