We will have to queue for subsequent nights we have started a trend. We have a very nice bungalow, but lots of travellers are booked into the bunkhouse which is not so great. Young German couple have already staked out their claim for the next night. Next day off on our obligatory scooter tour. Hire a bike from Rosa's ( apparently ...
