This Easter weekend, We've been blessed with lots of sunshine! We made the most of it by heading out of the city to Akaroa for the day, a little French colonial village tucked away in the Banks Peninsular. The traces of French settlement are everywhere, particularly in the original French architecture, which I snapped a few pictures of!
Every time we've been there, the quaint little library in the first picture has always stood out to me. I particularly love that photo because I look like a little doll outside a dolls house! (Which I could quite happily live in I must say!)
As we took a nice afternoon stroll we stumbled upon a gorgeous shop we hadn't seen before; The French Shop, Filled with the most luxurious home wares imported from France (and one day when I'm not on a student budget, I will buy the whole shop! haha). No French themed day can be complete without French onion soup! Bully Hayes make the best French onion soup, and it is an absolute must on my list whenever we go to Akaroa.
Have any of you headed anywhere for a weekend away, or a little day trip over Easter?
