Lovely staff, friendly motel. Great for the kids and I. I could have stood slightly thicker walls though. It's a drag when you have to wait for your neighbours on both sides to go to sleep before you can....:-(

... It's also the entrance to a major NP so despite the small town vibe and local holiday traditions, it's packed with like-minded travelers coming and going everyday. I was blessed to meet some amazing souls who taught me a lot about myself and helped me through some good and not-so-good days.

We finished the day on a gradual easy decline that went on for 7 km. Probably my favourite part of the trail. Anders rode an extra 15 km that day to get the van. So impressed with that guy. And Nelly. Five months pregnant with twins. She gives me something to aspire to. We ...
... li>Saturday - went swimming with dolphins. There were many dolphins but they weren't in a very playful mood. Got seasick on the boat back. Drove to Hanmer Springs.
Heading back to the west today. Like all countries, the eastern part of NZ is generally rubbish.
2 weeks of travelling here has given me no indication one way or the other as to whether I should move here. I miss my guitar and my car. I don't miss English people.
