      ... town’s altitude was 792, that may be why the mountains had snow, don’t know, but it was awesome to see. Took plenty of photo’s and realised that this is something we will see all the time once we are on the South Island.

      I must share this with you, many years ago the Govt outlawed the Maori language, ( don’t know how many years ago) The Maori people kept their language alive by speaking it in private, until the ...
