We agree to go hiking into one of the national parks the next day, so plan and prepare for that. Sadly, lack of sleep and tiredness catch up with us and we end up sleeping in and missing our bus at 08.30! Bad start! It’s regrettable, but we use the day productively instead (maybe not as much as if we’d made the ...
