    ... they thought that horses could travel 30 miles a day, so they calculated that this beach was 90 miles long. Only, there was a snag. Horses can travel 30 miles on roads and pavement, but these horses were travelling on sand, so they were much, much slower. This means that the beach is not 90 miles long, much shorter. It probably is around 60 miles. I wonder why nobody has checked. Actually, somebody has probably figured out ...

    ... were a very dark purple and had spikes all over them which moved. When you tipped it upside down you could see its teeth. Although when you held it on the palm of your had you couldn't feel it biting you, if anything it just felt like it was tickling.

    Wednesday 9th April From Auckland I caught the bus to Paihia in the bay of islands arriving there in the late morning. The hostel I was staying at had bikes for free hire so I jumped on one and went for an explore. I cycled over the bridge to nearby Waitangi where the treaty between the Maori and Europeans was signed on February 6th 1840. I went for a look around the Waitangi Treaty grounds which included the European treaty house, traditional Whare Runanga ( ...
