European efficiency (read small) without the charm. Once inside the building you could be anywhere in the world. No local touches. Expensive internet , with a small free allowance. Expensive breakfast.

The first leg was around 450kms to New Plymouth which I had been told is a great city to visit. And I'm sure it probably is when ...
... his way to show you areas of interest and providing lots of information. For example, he told us that the Queen herself buys some of her fruit in Waitomo and showed us where she stayed when she last visited in the late 1980s/early 1990s.
The coach home picked us up from the big apple and we headed back home after a long enjoyable day. I would like to return one day and do the black water rafting in the caves or one of the other adventure tours!! ...
... and it felt like you were living in a tree house. There were awesome views of the beach and sunset and at night we could see glow worms, insects in the larva stage that emits light to attract food, lining the driveway like a string of Christmas lights.
The next day was another first for me and another check off the bucket list as on our way from Raglan back towards the middle of the country we stopped in Waitomo to do some caving. This area is famous ...
