    ... bit larger than normal, the bathroom was wheel chair accessible and the room didn't have a lock on the inside, only the outside. Where was the kitchen and lounge? Oh, it's communal, no worries. And the electrical system in the building is a bit shot, but the emergency stop bottom by the oven should work, incase of a fire....

    Our suspicions were further confirmed when we were face timing with Josh's parents and a high pitched ...

    ... out of town Tom Tom appeared to be taking us East instead of South West. We went with him for about 10 km before pulling over to look at the map - we were definitely heading the wrong way. We had a bit of a squabble, I accused Terry of taking a wrong turn back in Te Kuiti, he said he had only followed the directions Tom Tom had given him....... I then discovered that we (I) had spelt our destination incorrectly. Whoops, silly me, tut tut. It was a long drive to Whanganui ...
