... is considerably cheaper. Using an exchange rate of 1.87 that makes a litre of diesel about 0.79p and petrol about 1.17. Far cheaper than UK (thank goodness as we done over 1,000km all ready). Will update you on the stats again. Ho well it's into Wanganui for something to eat and make up for lasts nights pizza (although it was good). We saw loads and loads of restaurants on the way through to the camp site but told most will be closed before 9pm so must ...

On The Road Again... (Part 1)

A travel blog entry by amy-and-ian
