... farmers market and browsed the souvenir shops for the first time. Lots of the regular kitchen or very expensive native handicraft. One more walk on the oh so peaceful and picturesque beach and we are back in our hotel. It was such a well deserved relaxing day and a good way to unwind our very active trip. Tomorrow we are heading back towards Auckland where we will spend the next 2 nights. I will probably blog once more from Auckland.

... going on in the area as it is a public holiday and they are expecting lots of dignateries on the day so loads of police around. A few rain showers but we still managed to spend quite a bit of time looking round the house, Maori marae and watching the cultural show which was excellent. The treaty was signed in 1840 between the Maori Chiefs and English. It was written in English and then in Maori but a lot was lost in translation which has led to the problems with ...

... oreos were too much to bare. It was altogether an exhilirating but very sandy experience - We were still finding sand in our ears the next morning. On Monday morning we drove ourselves south for a brief one night stopover in the pretty seaside town of Okwera where we enjoyed some delicious seafood and the opportunity to completely empty our rucksacks (anyone who's stayed in a shared dorm for a prolonged period of time will know the joys of ...
