... frank ocean, maroon 5, bruno mars and justin bieber. A really good evening and nice to see Connor again before I headed off.
So day 1 of the Kiwi Experience was a very early start, I had to be up at 5:30 to make it into town for departure at 7am. Our destination was a town in Northland called Paihia (pronounced as though you were saying 'pie here').
