... m sad to be leaving my partner in crime tomorrow. Crazy that we've only known each other for a couple of weeks but it just feels like forever.

7th January
This morning Sofe, Jenni & I took the car to Huka falls and did a two hour trail walk. Pretty scenery of the bush, the huka river & falls but a fairly challenging walk especially in the heat.
