    The bed was comfortable. The spa a bit manky, but we tubbed in it anyway. The open fire was comforting.

We set up for the day on two sun loungers near the lap pool. We had no intention of staying for the full day, but the weather was glorious and there was plenty to do. We decided to get the dull bit done first. Lengths. We stopped once David had done 20. We then had the most ...

The only thing wreaking havoc on the first day was the millions of black flys biting every bit of bare skin they could find. 30 minutes after dinner I resembled a Muslim woman with only my eyes exposed. Side note: New Zealand is amazing. I'm not sure my heart ever left this place. 1.5 hours from the largest city on the South Island and we were alone in a ...

    ... could actually see it, he also said that the jet boats are designed to go on just 10cm of water and pumped out enough water to fill an Olympic swimming pool in just 10 minutes! It really was a great experience and we were all buzzing afterwards. At the bridge where we began there was a bungy jump over the river – marion was quite ready for one of those just yet – but maybe next time!

Indecision decided show up and we could not decide on what to do or where to stay. The town offered a plethora of adventurous activities like mountain biking and bungee jumping, along with an extensive hot pool and spa complex. It would seem that the small town had grown from a small station, solely on ...
