    ... roads and mountain ranges, altogether we did about 200 Km's. It was quite slow going as we had lots of mountain ranges to go through but a lovely drive. We are heading towards Westport tomorrow on the west coast, so tonight is only a pit stop! We are only a third of the way down and we have so much we want to ...

    ... place on deck 2, which Lotte did enjoy rather a lot but wasn't so nice for parents).

    At 9.30 we sat down for the magician, who was quite good and kept the children well entertained, though Lotte was clearly too young to have any idea of what was going on.
