    We are working here and glad we are not paying for a room here.

    Karin is German and has been running the B & B for too long. She has just accepted an offer on the property which is a good thing.

    She is trying to run the place on her own using backpackers for cheap labour. We feel sorry for her as her partner is back home ill, so she's got a lot going on.

    Everything about the place is dated. The beds, mattresses, pillows, bedding, towels. It's a beautiful property....but its unloved.

    Breakfast consists of cereal, bread, juice (measured) and tea/coffee.

    95% of the guests we have spoken to her feel that the price is way too much and that Karin can be rude.

    Might be best to stay elsewhere.

    ... We had a wonder then popped back on the bus to the more touristy village closest to the ferry terminal called Oneroa. This was much more like a seaside village back home on a summers day. Loads of people, shops, and cafes. We stopped and had a coffee by an open fire after wondering round the shops and the view points. The ferry back almost blew us away. Literally struggled to hold our phones up to take pictures of the skyline as ...

    ... of the food is superb in Auckland, we haven't had a bad meal yet. The price tags however match it, with most meals costing a small fortune. We hope the $28 burger type price tags will come down to a more affordable price when we leave the metropolis of Auckland behind us. Thankfully beer and wine prices are closer to what we are used to, with $8 being the average for the house wine and beer specials of the day.

    ... wander, museums, gardens with lush trees brilliantly green, dining and shopping. We started our touring with the War Memorial museum in the Domain Park in Auckland. We saw the Maori performance of their traditional songs, demonstrations of the Poi Balls and the welcome challenge ceremony of the tribal warriors where their tongues protrude and eyes bulging open, all to threaten their tribal enemy, was very entertaining. They also gave us a great insight to ...

    ... the most interesting job she had heard of and the stories that accompanied it were the stuff of televisual fiction. Although, I'm afraid this is perhaps not the appropriate forum to share these stories, given the sensitive nature of his work. We were soon introduced to Antony's 18 month old daughter, Summer, who was understandably reticent in our company at first but who soon warmed to Helen in particular and began to show off to us with her hilarious game of "Outside". This ...

    I have noticed that toilets in New Zealand are different than Canada. No, not the water flowing the other way, but the stalls are much longer, unlike Canada, meaning that even though the doors swing inwards, you don't bang your knees or have to climb onto the toilet to get out. The stalls are also wider. The toilet seats are a LOT narrower, more like a toilet in Canada with the seat up, can't be more than 2 or 3 inches wide. Strange the things you ...
