    ... honey nests where you could watch the bees at work, lots of information about the bees and their jobs. It was quite interesting really. A few points I learnt were A bee isn't born knowing how to make honey, it is a learned behaviour. A bee will only make half a teaspoon of honey in it's lifetime. The Queen bees only job role is to re produce. A bee can sting an insect repeatedly. It can only sting a human once because it isn't strong enough to pull it's stinger out of the human ...

    ... this 'staircase'. Climbing the staircase was bleak. Tor was loving life, leading at the front - practically at the top before I'd made it half-way. After we'd made it up the staircase, I decided to have a look at the map. It had called 'Devil's Staircase' a hard ascent. Stage 4 was called a 'difficult' ascent. This meant that stage 4 was going to be worse then the staircase. This was difficult to commute. I can confirm that the difficult ascent was horrendous. It ...

Before arriving we quickly visited a waterfall. It was big but the water was turquoise blue and apparently was enough water flow to fill 2 Olympic swimming pools every ...

    ... a quick bite to eat before the major ascent to the main road and set off once more. We were running short of food and diesel so we headed into Napier before heading NE towards Taupo. This was a long drive (6hrs) and I was glad when we arrived. The site at Taupo was brill. Because we were late we went to the local chippy for fish and chips again! The site was immaculate and we had a good rest. The stars were amazing but any attempt to photograph them failed! Blog late today as I fell ...
