    Napier sits on the east coast of the north Island some 135km from Taupo. The sign leaving Taupo states "No fuel for 130km" which gives some idea of how busy the road is.

    ... to chose from. We took Helen's advice and went to "Mister D" which is known for good food and a speciality of doughnuts where you get to choose a filling (which you get to inject yourself using a syringe!). Lunch was very good and the doughnut was excellent.

    That left us just enough time to join the 2pm Art Deco Walking Tour of Napier. Napier was destroyed by an earthquake in 1931 and was subsequently rebuilt in Art Deco style. ...
