Our disclaimer also said that the New Zealand government makes it very very difficult for anyone to sue in case of injury, so if you do not have adequate …

Whakatane, Ohope and White Island

A travel blog entry by melstravels


I have a new friend at work – Chathuri, aka Chatty – a lawyer who has come over to Waihi from the Regional office the same way that I'm here: on a 12 month secondment.

    A very slick operation the rooms were very comfortable and clean. The cafe is an odd layout though. some of the tables are in the way of people getting to and from their rooms, especially if they have cases also there was only one toilet that catered for those going on cruises and cafe patrons, very long queues
