A very pleasant stay! Owners were really nice and made you feel right at home. The hostel is clean, close to the supermarket and the centre.

... any pressure on them and your foot will go through the crust to either molten rock or molten mud , not a good way to lose a foot !! We had two young girls as guides one at the front and one at the back who were very knowledgeable as they had read the same book as I had. Just a couple facts Captain Cook discovered the island, though Maoris had been there as well, and he named it White Island as it always looked white to him because of the steam coming from the vent in ...

So before our games of monopoly, we mixed together a batch of cheese scones and had them for lunch, they were good, but I think that was because Peter was stood next to me telling me what to put in and how much.

... they have made us so welcome again and we owe them big time when they come to the UK again and visit us. Helen is always sad when we leave people when travelling but more so because she really enjoys Lorrain's company and they share a good sense of humour.

Good luck to Vicky and Rob with ...
