    ... is the lack of a proper toilet. We've got what the company call a 'porta-potty' which is basically a child's potty. Only to be used in emergencies! Our first destination when we picked up our campervan was Paihia in the Bay of Islands.

    ... some of the first English people to arrive in NZ and the Maori people. There still stands the stone building, built to house food stores and other supplies, and the mission house where the English missionaries lived. It is thought to be the oldest wooden house in NZ.
