    ... the on-board computer guru stumped. I know there is an Apple Store in Sydney because we spent about three hours there one day in 2012. Looks like there is going to be a repeat performance.

    Don’t worry about the free Wi-Fi in Paihia. Capitalism is alive and well “down under.” We stopped in an arts & craft fair along the beach front. Lots of nice stuff. But they are only open when the ships are in. The local brick ...

    ... and had stuffed pittas with Morrocan mint tea. The scenery on route was spectacular, it is a mixture of England, Ireland and Scotland but on a grander scale with lots of Palm trees thrown into the mix and better weather of course!

The pages were then hung to dry before being cut to shape and sewn together for binding in leather. The leather was a whole other process where the skins were soaked in urine to rid them of the coat and then placed in tannin which was obtained from Australian tree wood.

    ... br> The next morning we set off early for our drive to the top of New Zealand, a long peninsula of land with quite a few sites to see on the way. First stop was for picnic breakfast at Waipapakauri Beach, part of the renowned Ninety Mile Beach that stretches up the eastern side of the peninsula.

    Then we drove all the way up to Cape Reinga – not officially the very top but close enough. It’s a spectacular spot marked by a lighthouse, overlooking the meeting ...
