      we liked the location right opposite the Q1 building & right next to the beach. the kitchen was of ok standard and the bedding etc was clean. we just didnt like that you couldnt bring your own alcohol into the hostel as they have their own bar and the prices of the drinks in their bar are quite expensive and the drinks are understocked!not a very sociable hostel!

      ... for food and came back with a bar crawl ticket for that evening.

      I think bar crawls are just so cringy and they always take you to the clubs when they are empty. Luckily there was about 100 people on our crawl, so even though the clubs were dead they weren’t when we all walked in. The clubs in Surfers are good, and we had a really fun time on the crawl.

      We went to Movie World which is a bus ...

      ... they thought she was our carer or something?!

      Unfortunately we listened to our 'carer' and got off the bus one stop too early, so more walking was involved!

      By now Paul's ready for a siesta and happy hour, but Lisa had other plans for us - Friday night is Market Night in Surfers - we HAVE to go! (I think I heard Paul actually groan!)

      I cooked up some of our prize winning chicken that we had won last night (was awful - I know why they gave it away ...

      ... First impressions on our trip to the hotel were that it is busy, busy, even on a Sunday. Population is around half NZs crammed into a much smaller space. The harbour is huge and there are boats ships fishing vessels etc everywhere. Awoke to rain and the occasional clap of thunder this ...

It was a good ride not as fast as I had thought but my you do get drenched! By the time we got off Roxton had decided to go on so we swopped again but as they got to the front all the rides in the park were stopped due to a major electric storm in the area. The girls went in to try and get Rich ...
