      ... At about 25 km we come to a junction and stop for morning tea. Not sure where we read it but it was recommended that insect repellant is a good investment - it came in handy at this spot as there seem to be swarms of sandflies and a LOT of bumble bees, which seemed determined to not leave us alone. There were some information boards about the railway constructed through the north of ...

      ... 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.

      ... stream just a few meters away. We get a fire going and start planning our way out. Option 1: we stick to our track (which starts with a 1,200 meter climb in the morning) and are out of the forest in two days.

      ... nice motorbike. Also watched some other people camping next to us try to start a fire on the BBQ using twigs and sticks which were clearly damp due to the rain and so were never going to burn! But they did persevere, I’ll give them that.
