I do like to be beside the seaside

A travel blog entry by suebar


Having had breakfast and washed another load of dirty clothes we left them to dry and headed into Whakatane. We went to the iSite (the information centre) to find out if there were any trips to Whale Island which did not involve walking once you got there. There weren't. On all of them you land and then go for a guided walk to see the birds in the forest. We had already discounted a trip to the White Island since you land on ...

Hahei / Raglan / Mourea

It's an organised event for the tourists but is ...
