          It was a very small suite and quite old , but it was ok for what we needed. It had all the amenities required. The receptionist was very helpful.

          We're on our way heading the quick way to Wellington and bypassing Taupo as we head to Wellington and then picking State Highway 1 up at Turangi. With the early start we were able to stop off in Waikanae to see Pa,John and Joanne. Now on to Wellington !

          After arriving in Wellington we checked into the motel which was just a convenient 2 …

We also met James' wife Lou and had home made pizzas in front of the fire before heading off to bed. I got to sleep in a double bed with real bedsheets for the first time since being in New Zealand. ...

We had dinner at an Italian place and it was so good!!! We had moments of quiet, laughing and awe from what we were eating. We decided dessert was going to be from the grocery store. We needed to pick up some lunch supplies. Mistake one. Taking Marlin in a grocery store after living in China. I ...
