A travel blog entry by stuartandsue

Lazy day! Another walk by the port finishing with ...

A visit to the tiny school brought back quite a few memories for Fiona as ...

Wild Sting Rays, Really Long Wharf, & A Lighthouse

A travel blog entry by stephaniehawks


... lunch. Lauren, Jonathan, and I were happy that they served our favorite food in New Zealand, toasties. We call them grilled sandwiches in the states. Basically all they are is toasted bread, ham, and cheese. Hailey and Stephan branched out a bit--Stephan ordered nachos; Hailey ordered a grilled chicken sandwich.
