      Amazing place when you've not experienced a double room with a telly since 27th December. Great king-size beds, basic TV channels but they have a lounge with Sky. Got to watch the Man Utd game in the morning. Huge kitchen, everything you need, nice balcony to eat over looking the lake. Countdown and Pack N Save round the corner. Strange though, this place was dead when we stopped there. Only 5 or 6 other guest, great for us, we had free run of the place, not so good if you want a party.

      If you wear an Ironman medal around (you only get one day to do this without coming across as pompous) you get offered free beer, free admission and a ton of conversations and congrats.

      ... actually enjoying the big waves, was almost putting us to sleep. Others around us were not as fortunate. One poor girl was eating gravel from the box like a Pez dispenser. Because the ferry had every amenity available, including wi-fi, we took advantage of making plans for things to do in Wellington. Well, it turned out, the city life of Wellington really wasn't our cup of tea, but 5 hours north at Lake Taupo was more our style. Since we had to ...

      ... a rest was necessary. In addition, he intelligently deduced that if he started swimming from where he ended, he would wind up on the other side, but at the base of high cliffs with no way to get out of the river. So…he walked upriver on the steep bank on the other side, until he was slightly upriver from us, then dove in and headed back. He did a great job and made it across, and only about 100 yards downriver from us, so was able to walk back to meet ...
