    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.

    ... of our fine old camper. The car is dented, scratched and rattly (and at least 16 years old) but it has a charm of its own and we are very glad to have it as our home for the next six weeks. We have christened him Fenton. We drove off cautiously excited, Ben having to quickly get used to putting the automatic in and out of gear using a lever at the side of the steering wheel. The nearest campsite was in a scenic park and visitor farm by the water. As we arrived, we met an amiable ...

    ... back to Auckland about 4.30 and headed over to the Sky Tower. We had the best views and celebrated with a glass of wine here plus an indulgent dinner in Masu (Japanese restaurant). There is so much more I could add about this part of our trip but I'd be writing all day. I want to end by saying we be definitely be back to NZ. It is honestly one of the most amazing countries we have ever been to and will hold our memories dear from both the South and North ...

    I was struck by travelling for the first time in a long time outside of my normal routine. Can't remember the name of the movie, but George Clooney played a frequent flyer and I could relate to much of that movie due to my own international air travels. Stewart also commented to us that it was very different travelling without Dad :)

    Anyway, I found myself a little stressed, the previous night and this morning, wanting to ...

    ... been searching for something similar both in England and here, but have not found anything remotely similar. They took us to dinner at a lovely restaurant. Had green mussels and mount fish. Intereting. We drove by the beach areas, saw beautiful homes everywhere, much like homes and yards in the U. S. Back homeu for a cup of tea and more discussions in their upstairs parlor. We were happy to get to bed at a reasonable ...

    First Impressions of New Zealand

    The first few days in New Zealand have been spent wandering round Auckland, sometimes in the sun but occasionally in one of the huge downpours. Just as well we are hardcore and have our waterproofs with us! It's full of cafés and restaurants, so many you cannot imagine how they all make money. Our first meal was in a small Turkish 'takeaway' just around the corner from our apartment. Nice ...
