    ... the drive on up toward Russell, we had the pleasure of seeing not one but two rainbows, and the second one was a double rainbow. This was the first time I can ever remember seeing a double rainbow. Who knew I’d have to come all the way to New Zealand to do it. I actually just learned a few weeks ago (don’t ask why) that double rainbows are caused by light being reflected inside the rain droplets twice instead of just once like what happens with ...

    ... is that tyres? Anyway, we asked her for directions to the library. As with all Kiwis we’ve met so far, she was very friendly. She was a Parking Warden from the Far North District Council.

    ... we didn't get to swim with dolphins we got a voucher for a free ticket to another trip. I had time to do this again the next morning, but having just been in Vegas I think I'd had enough of gambling.

    That evening the hostel was running a barbecue and then the bar had two guys with guitars playing live. It was pretty nice and I got talking with an Israeli guy about this game a friend of his invented where a computer gives individuals at a house party ...

    After our Cape Tour we headed down the east coast of Northland. There were so many beautiful peninsulas and bays, waterfalls and a few surprises like the Hundertwasser Loos in Kawakawa. And the steam train! First stop, after a lovely nights camping at Maitai Bay, was Matthews Vintage Museum - hardly quintessential Kiwi heritage but Michael was in his element and took heaps of photos (I shall try ...
