    ... the hillside which was pretty much a rainforest. Climbing up the hillside on a pathway made out of mud is not easy let me tell you. This being made even harder by the fact on this side of the hill there were no trees to grab hold of. The only thing to stop you falling back down were the tuffs of grass which hadn't quite worn away from people walking there. That's all well and good but 1, tuffs of grass do not hold your body weight, yes you can grab on to them but you just end up ...

    ... the British and the Maori was signed in 1840. The treaty made New Zealand part of the British Empire. Interestingly, while the treaty was written in both English and Maori (I suppose that’s what you call the native tongue), the versions were apparently not identical or, perhaps, words had different meanings in the two languages.

    ... little hamlet of about 700 souls, who see an influx of visitors during the summer season.

    ... I don't do hills well) very few coffee shops and just no atmosphere. We did take a trip up the Sky Tower, but not only do I not do hills neither do I do heights, but reluctantly we went up - a long way to the viewing platform in a glass bottomed lift.

Christine persuaded me to onto the lower walkway to take some pictures but ...

    ... couldn't figure out why he didn't need to buy another drink for over an hour! Met a random Canadian couple who offered Matt some tabaco to put inside his lip. When he decided he'd had enough he spat it out into an ashtray full of ash which basically all blew back into his eye, it was hilarious.
