    ... for the whole night. So we decided this would be ‘home’ for the night.

    When we did go to use the machine to put a few hours on to reach 11pm, we noticed that the time on one particular machine was wrong and instead of charging us an hour for $1 (as it should have been) it was giving us double the time for our money! Needless to say we made sure we always used that machine and kept that little secret ...

    ... NZ winters in a wooden shack, I suffered enough this winter in a badly insulated house in Wellington! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

    By the evening, the weather had truly taken a turn for the worse. AS we were driving to see the Haruru Falls near our accommodation, it started truly hammering it down with rain. We saw a number of people in tents, I can’t tell you at that point how relieved I was I wasn’t one of them. I have been that person and I can tell you right ...
