... it had decided to rain as soon as we got off the bus so with our hoods up we quickly went to see if before heading back to the bus. We have seen better ones in Asia and will see better ones along the way in New Zealand, hopefully when it is not raining. The rain did decide to stop once we got back on the bus, it was just typical! We arrived in the beautiful town of Paihia just before twelve. We took a quick tour around the small town with Jarred showing us ...

We took the little Suzuki 4wd down and had a good time bouncing over the sand dunes and navigating around the "tracks" already made by others. We saw a seal just chilling on the beach too. The beach itself is around 100km long, and so can actually be useful as a road, depending on where you want to go.
