      The problem with the Nautilus is not the room or the motel itself it is the really busy road that it sits on. We were given their quietest road but that meant the side two rooms from the front so still noisy. There is a port on the edge of Napier and all the large lorries from port drive along the front of Napier and that is where a lot of the hotels are positioned (there is a nice promenade).

      Art Deco Napier

      This morning we did an Art Deco walking tour. The tour started at the colonnade on Marine Parade. This waterfront reserve area is all built on land that was thrust up by the 1931 earthquake. Before the earthquake the tide came right up to the sea wall at the edge of Marine Parade. The earthquake lifted the seabed two metres above sea level right …

      A travel blog entry by samber51 on Feb 01, 2015

      Von Wellington machen wir uns direkt, wenn auch ein wenig verkatert, auf den Weg nach Napier. (Da soll mal einer behaupten ich sei nicht ehrlich!!) Die Südwestküste der Nordinsel gibt ausser Klippen nicht viel her und deshalb fahren wir so ziemlich den ganzen Tag einfach weiter nach Norden. In Napier angelangt nehmen wir uns das erste Mal auf …

      After getting advice from Tourist Information we booked ourselves on the Gannet Colony tour. This was the most expensive option but the other two options were not open to us. If the tide is right you can walk along the beach, or you can go in a trailer pulled by a tractor again along the beach. However you guessed it, the tides were wrong. We went …

All the false chain mail in the film was hand made it took 3 months to make it all. Though Aragorn ( the gorgeous hunky one ) is a method actor and all his chain mails was made out of metal and it weighed a ton, believe me we held only the neck mail. He was obviously very fit ...

      We woke to a beautifully sunny Napier day and entertained ourselves this morning by watching professional tree cutters use chainsaws to cut branches and trees on a 50 meter cliff face out the back of the property. OK, so they were pretty ripped (Jen's words), but also skillful and it was interesting to see how it was all co-ordinated. We imagine the guys love rock climbing and abseiling in recreational time.
