    Day 19 – Wed 25 March –Kerikeri to Whangaruru

    Yah – it's sunny!

    It was such a pleasure to wake up to a fine morning with the promise of a lovely day – until Bruce checked the car tyre which was looking flatter than the others. He pumped it up and when we went to a tyre ...

    Day 38 Bay of Islands, NZ

    A travel blog entry by luv2cruise on Feb 18, 2015

    ... was suppose to be about 68 degrees and we dressed like it was below 32! I had on my hoodie, jeans, jocks, etc. Actually, it was very warm! They sell many items made out of Merino wool but we did not purchase anything like that. Rose did buy a beautiful hat for her granddaughter though.

    When I got back yesterday, I was greeted by a girl who had just arrived at our hostel. She was an Irish nurse who had been living in Australia for the past 2 years. She was going back to live in Ireland at Christmas so was trying to do as much travelling as she could before she went back. Even though she was in our room, she wasn't coming travelling with us, she was only there for one night and then off to Wellington to meet some friends.She was really ...
