    ... We chose an Airport hotel and luckily it had a little mall next to it with a supermarket and other stores. A bit odd to see it basically on the Airport grounds. After 41 days and 4,3148KM's I was able to return the car in one piece. We averaged a whopping 105KM per day. $850 for 41 days for a car - will never beat that. Though the gas ranged from $1.95 to $2.35 per liter during our trip. I can't imagine ...

    ... br> Thankfully those days are long gone and we were met with a quaint white pier, colonial buildings and a tree lined sea front Street known as The Strand. Russell is mainly now famous for being home to New Zealand’s oldest church (dated from 1840) and the oldest licensed pub called the Duke of Marlborough who prides itself as: “Refreshing Rascals and Reprobates since 1827” – fair enough!

    ... then leaping out of the water about 6 to 8 feet into the air. The sights were stunning. Stopped off at Otehei Bay on the Island of Urupukapuka on the way back, a little display of Maori culture, followed by tea and cakes. A very memorable cruise around some beautiful Islands.  Had real problems uploading the photo's yesterday so gave up in the end. Have managed two so far this evening will try another one now. That's failed so will send as it ...

    Green lipped mussels, L&P soda, Monteith's Summer Ale, Hokey Pokey ice cream...must be summer in New Zealand! Had a great day today at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and a ferry ride across the bay to Russell.

    The Waitangi Treaty Grounds is the birth place of the nation of NZ as we know it. In 1840, the confederated Maori tribes and the British crown signed a document to create New Zealand. Unfortunately, the translation of the document in English and ...

    ... Reef out in the Bay. It was about 10m and good visibility so we stayed under for 48 minutes, having a good look around at all the fish. The water was a little cool despite our hoods, so by then I was ready to come up for a hot drink.

    The second dive was at Putahataha Island in Deep Water Cove. We moved around the island and down about 15 metres to a cave that we could easily swim in and out of, minding the moray eel to one side. The roof of the cave had many dangling ...
