      ... back to do some laundry ready to start our kiwi experience bus the next morning! An early start to meet the bus and we were heading to The Bay of Islands which is north of Auckland. We signed up for 3 nights in the bay after having a look at our calendar and deciding it would be worth staying longer up there. When we arrived in Paihia we walked up to the treaty grounds. This was where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed in 1840 to give the people of New Zealand ...

      ... chest first into the ground, however my instructor just tweaked the parachute and with it we slide in almost exactly where we started. There was another interview where I essentially wouldn't have remembered what I said if it hadn't been for the video. I thanked my instructor and was ushered inside to get the gear off.

      ...and trouts too!

      So the grown-up and me have arrived in Taupo, where there is a very, very big lake and a river too.
      The first thing the grown-up did was go and have a little ride in a jet boat. I didn't go with her, because I didn't want to get my paws wet, but the grown-up did say that she had a very good time. The boat whizzed up the Waikato river to the Huka Falls, ...
