    Burning dolphins

    ... the bus and the driver gives us a run through of what the options are on things to do. I ended up booking a tour to swim with dolphins since this was all I really wanted to in Paihia, I decided to do it that afternoon since someone suggested it was better do it in the afternoon after the morning trip had already scouted out the dolphin locations.

    We arrived in the glorious sunshine and within ten minutes the heavens had opened and there was a torrential ...
