    Very nice place, not right at beachfront but that also means that you don't hear much of the nightlife.
    Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.

    ... answer was yes so we all had our fingers crossed that it would be the same for us.

    Sadly though, it wasn’t. We saw plenty of dolphins but they were either sleeping or had littlies with them. It was a nice cruise around the bay but we already had another bay cruise booked for the next day so for me, and I’d imagine others on the boat, it was a huge disappointment. Maybe if the weather had been kinder and the bay had been ...

    ... us to see the sights of this two-horse place and I even have time to visit the local Museum.  Then its back into the car for the return ferry trip to our house in Opua.  Day 6: We decide on a leisurely lie in and then drive into nearby Paiha for a walk around the town and a look at the sights.  Despite being a little larger than Opua and Russell (this place even has a Countdown (ie Woolies) supermarket) it doesn't take long to see everything and we soon ...

    On the way back we called in to the town of Russell which was where we had our first beers in New Zealand. Amy and I ordered good ole Corona's and Nick got a Tui... which was the smarter beer to order considering we can get Corona's anywhere in Australia :/

    We got a short ferry ride back to Paihia then went and found the Hururu falls. These beautiful waterfalls just a 5 ...

    Auckland - 5 MAR

    ... Brilliant. (I did really want to try them but there was sand and black bits in, I couldn't.) Went on a hike this morning to the tangi grounds. The views are lovely, got some great shots. Bye bye Paihia, back to Auckland for second leg. Seems strange we have known the group for 4 days and yet so sad to see people leave. Big (and I mean big) meal for us all for the expensive cost of $1.50 each! Cheap food, great company. I hope the next group joining us are as good. (More pics to ...

    After our brilliant few days in Kaikoura, we started the journey back up northwards. This meant revisiting a few places we'd already been to, so made for a less exciting few days - the return ferry trip to Wellington, which again thankfully was very smooth and again passed by a pod of dolphins, and then after an overnight stay in Wellington, a return trip to Taupo. Our driver, Vaughan, got us a couple of films on the bus for us to watch - "Me, myself and ...
