    ... and countertops. I felt like I was in a bachelors house! After touring the house we went out to dinner at a nearby strip of restaurants. My host family and I ate at a 'Cook your own steak' restaurant. You choose what type of meat you want and your own side dish, then they bring it out one little grill for you to cook and enjoy!

The first thing we noticed when getting off the bus was the stench of rotten eggs. None of us particularly enjoyed ...

    The Maori village is also a college teaching traditional Maori crafts. One craft is wood carving. The course is 3 years long and only Maori men can do it. They learn to use traditional tools made from wood, string ...

    ... we had booked to visit in the morning, not wanting to drive any further with such horrendous sounding grinding and squealing coming from the wheels. Turns out we have been provided with the most pathetically small tyre iron and seized wheel nuts so we can’t even get the wheel off to try and resolve the issue – looks like we’re getting the breakdown guys out ...
