    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, …

    ... terrain that would have been better suited to a film about a faraway planet. We were walking over a huge flat expanse of barren land, with nothing but volcanic rock and weird little plants for company. After an hour we began our first 'up' section.

    ... It was now just the three of us and the pilot. Rob started whispering to the pilot but I had no idea what was going on. Suddenly Rob looked around at me winked and shouted 'this is for my home boy'. Suddenly the planes engine shut out and started falling. We were in zero gravity.
