    Heaven on a stick

    Day 3: After a quick breakfast we check out of our hotel and head out to the airport to pick up Louise & Peter.  They have been in NZ for a week or so already, travelling around the South Island in a camper van. Today they drop their van off and we pick them up for the 3 hour drive up to the Bay of Islands and the location of our house swap.  Only problem is we don't have a map or GPS and their pick up location is a couple of streets over from the main drag out ...

    In New Zealand, working on a farm in return for your food and board is especially popular with backpackers. While Ian and I were not quite ready to hang up our sandals for wellies and get down and dirty with the pigs, we thought it would be fun to stay for a few days in a real working dairy farm.

Paihia is a lovely little place, and we were excited about having a few days here to chill out and relax. We ended the evening nicely too with an amazing barbeque put on by the hostel - the steak was fantastic!
    We spent the next couple of days doing much the same, but unfortunately the weather started to ...

    We laughed all the way back to the north island with a great Kiwi Experience driver named Diddles, who also happened to be a great friend of Team Crisp! First stop Wellington, we checked into the YHA and even got a free cheeky upgrade to a private room! Cooking dinner that night and in walks in a familiar face, it was only bloody Devon our Persian German friend from Queens-town! Devon joined us for dinner and the following night joined us for our date night!! We had ...

    A travel blog entry by laracamille on Dec 09, 2013

    I woke up early today as the room was boiling!! I got up and dressed then went to use the wifi and chatted to some people as it was actually working! The girls then found me and we had our free breakfast which wasn't too bad!
