    We stayed for 1 night in our camper van.

    We arrived quite late after a long drive and received a warm and helpful welcome. The site looks straight at the falls - lovely.

    We used the small but clean kitchen for breakfast. The showers and loo were OK. We hired a kayak for an hour the day we left and kayaked right up to the falls - great experience.

    ... a huge lounge/kitchen and a decking area. We had booked a 6 bed dorm ($28 each per night), (all of the rooms here are ensuite, which is a nice bonus), but the off season once again worked in our favour and there were only two other room mates to share with. The hostel is great, only a few minutes to the beach and all that little Paihia has to offer, including Vinnie's which serves up glorious fush and chups for only $9. The Bay of Islands is home ...

    ... It's one of the few places in the world that is a unesco world heritage site for being of natural and cultural importance. Had a picnic lunch in the sun and then went to a waterfall to do 'some bombs' haha. Jumped in off an 8 metre waterfall, it was very high!! Got some more great videos as I jumped. I think I have around 90 odd on my gopro now, so will look forward to putting them all together when I get home. Got to river valley around 7 at night, and had ...

    ... was followed by a proper beer.
    Unfortunately the crème brulee was out, so that there was no desert for me today.

    Back home, after a long and exciting day, we had just enough energy left to copy some pictures across and then soon it was time for bed.

    It was a great Birthday and I am very thankful for my Parents to have come half way around the world to celebrate it with me. Thank you guys... and thanks for paying for the dive and the fancy steak, too ...

    ... la Bay of Islands. Cela nous semblait bien: prendre soin de la maison et du chien pendant la periode de Noel, pendant l'absence de la proprietaire. Quand nous y sommes arrives, nous avons panique: la maison s'effondrait, les meubles moisissaient, le chien sentait plus fort que tout autre chien que j'ai rencontre et il restait dans la maison, dormait sur les lits, laissait ses os a moitie maches partout. Le jardin, qui etait en outre tres joli, etait plein de ...

    ... which were about 8m wide. I didn't realise how big they were until I got close to it, and they were huge!! We then had a walk through the reserve which was full of massive trees and little streams. Once we were back on the bus after the walk, we headed to Goat Island. It was a really gorgeous island surrounded by turquoise sea. We had the option of snorkelling but as the weather was turning and the sea was cold, only 3 people opted for that. They only ...
