        This isn't the most luxurious of places but it was ok for a one night stopover. We wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer!

        Well, we were quite sad to leave Paihia this morning as the B&B we stayed at was lovely and the owners (Phil and Wendy) were so friendly. We packed the car and were on the road by 9:30am heading towards Kawiti Glow Worm Caves. This short stop turned out to be better than expected as the guide was very informative. The tour is run by the family …

Miss the **** out of those guys. The ucm NZ squad meets up and we go to coyle park. Selfie sticks galore with these people.

        ... do. I've seen communities that support each other, know each other by name, share their lives with one another, and they don't have a cent between them. I often wonder who really is happier. Where these people are really deprived though is access to healthcare and education.
