... town. Kiwis seem to be keen on vintage and veteran cars. We have seen lots around in all the places we have been so far.

Further down the street there is a busker playing the recorder. It might be Graham from the Decks of Paihia trying to raise the money for his flight home to Adelaide.

One of the main streets is called Emerson Street but by strategically placing my foot over the E it is transformed in to Merson Street.

Hastings wins us over

... AJ's very early but the very chatty lady let us have our room. We think it is a double room in a separate house which she appears to live in......still it is a nice sized room and Helen only has to walk 20 metres to the problem!!

Also opened our Christmas cards today, thank you to those who sent them :) Put a few decorations up. Will add some more a bit closer to Christmas. It's crazy hearing Christmas songs on the radio when it's 26 degrees! Bed now, up early ...

Work: day 1

A travel blog entry by khughes17

It was extremely hot and then extremely cold! But it was better than economy seating. We must remember. We thought the night very successful as there are NO leaks in the caravan! Yay!! It started ...
