          We now arrive in genuine Maori country: far more names in their language, not just Paraparaumu. Well, sometimes a surprise pops up: an hour north of Paraparaumu, through a rather monotonous countryside, we spotted a sign saying 'Dutch Market'. And 3 minutes later, in the township of Foxton, a genuine Dutch windmill stands proudly, 2 wings sailed, …

We waited around for an hour to see if the winds died down enough for another attempt, but they didn't.

Maori Homestay With something like Hobbiton taking centre stage, you would think that nothing else could match it in the same day but that afternoon we arrived at our second Maori family homestay. We were ...

It was $20 for 25 balls and if you hit the pontoon you get another free ball. First time picking up a golf club in a few years I blew the rust off and from the off hit the pontoon. I still got it... Sort of. I hit huge pontoon quite often and we even had 3 occasions where we thought I might have had a hole in ...

The rest of the time spent in Taupo was discovering that 'Wild Bean Cafe' was ...
