    ... We made a stop in the small town of Selwyn to get food and supplies for our little mobile home before heading back onto the road.

    Our accommodation for the night is a series of self-contained lodges in the forest a short walk from the beach. It's a bit different to normal as we usually have a big communal area where the group congregates, but here people ...
