          The view from my balcony is super, the studio is very comfortable with everything I could need. It is much better place as all other hotels in centre, situated on the mountain just on the seashore.

          Hotelli omanik Marcel püúdis mulle eile suvalist tuuri kahest voldikust maha müüa. Uurisin prospekte ja valisin delfiinivaatluse ja nendega koos ujumise. Selle viimase eest võeti lisaraha. Igaks juhuks maksin ka. Marcelil on üks puujalg, ise on ta sarmikas latiinotüüpi igavesti naeratav mees, tema liikumist …

          Päike! Hommikusöök verandal vaatega nii orgu kui mäkke. Saan täiendavat netti skaipimiseks. Peale ametlikku check out'i matkan Abbey caves'i matkaraja, see kuulub poolest saadik peremehele. Jälle tohutult ilusad vanad puud ja täiesti erilised kaljud. Igaüks lausa karjub jäädvustamise järele. …

          ... caves however it was still pretty cool. Back in our car we headed to our apartment in Paihia. Our own apartment for two nights felt like heaven to the three of us, it was so nice having our own space and not sleeping in a bunk bed! The evening was spent drinking wine which I had purchased in Chile and looking through each other's pictures. Before being reunited we had booked a boat trip round the bay of islands. It was bliss waking up the following morning and having a bacon and ...

          ... he was and asked if I needed to go to hospital to get checked over after my attack. He was very sorry and has finally said he might just start listening lol! It was a relief to get back to the van. We were both soaked, freezing, hungry and thirsty. We'd not had a drink all day so that was first on the list. We had to drive 20 minutes to find the nearest shop. That drink tasted better than any I've ever had. By this point I could laugh about the situation. It was pretty scary at ...
