      ... the end they had plenty of egg sandwiches for sale, but nobody was buying them!!! From here we went to a place called Kerosene Creek, this had been mentioned to us by our flight attendant on the way over, it isn't in any of the books, it's New Zealand's little secret. We stumbled across it by chance and after driving down a very bumpy road, not good in a vehicle ...

      ... br> Tow-po as in Ow it hurts
      Tor-po as in war...what is it good for.
      Toe-por as in your poor toe sore?

      After all the tongue-twisting Maori place names we've come across, I'd believe all three are valid.

George was in the shower and mum was half way through drying her hair. In a fit of panic with fear of an earthquake at the forefront of mum's mind she started squawking like an angry ...

      ... to try to skydive again remains to be seen.

      Chastened by our failure, we made our way to the Craters of the Moon, a rambling 30 minute walk along decked paths that showcases steam generated by magma far below the ground escaping through the ground. It sounds impressive, but somehow it failed to excite us. Perhaps we were still distracted by the previous skydive experience, but we were much more enthused by a bicycle ride around a small part of ...
