Travel Blogs from Paihia

... today to the Bay of Islands and are to be staying at a B and B called Decks of Paihia in a town called Paihia. On the way Richard and Carole have recommended we go to the toilet in Kawakawa.

A travel blog entry by vikkiandchris

Travelling and doing all these amazing things has made me think about my bucket list, the things I want to do before I die. Some I've already been lucky enough to do, others I may get chance to do at some point on this trip, other things I can see will take a very long time to achieve.
