Back to Kawerau

A travel blog entry by edsutch


... there yet and really wanted to see what the fuss was about. We stopped off by the lake to try and find a good place for lunch, except the guys then got excited about what they could hire. They tried to convince me and Shannon to let the hire a boat that they could drive around the lake, whilst we sat on the floor of the boat... With their driving, no rather not. So after 5 minutes of excitement they sulked for the rest of the day, till their mind was taken off of it. Then ...

... and Helens boys from Essex, all waited to say their goodbyes to us.

Let's hope this is not a trend that catches on back home or else we can look forward to a generation of kids from Miles Platting called Heineken ,Amstel or John Willy Lees. Something else which we learnt as we continued south fro Katikati, was the origins of that reaction that occurs when you have had too much ...
