... back one day and have a ski down the remarkables....who wants to join me?! After a tediously long journey we arrived at Russell in the north island. I'm embarrassed to say I acted like one of my year 1 children the entire way 'are we there yet? How long now? I'm boredddd' requiring constant entertainment for the duration of the journey.

Paihia was a great place to relax though, and quite significant in that it is the last "new" place that we'll go to on our trip.
I'm not going to write any more now, Lizzy is.
