    ... room so was massively happy with that achievement! We chilled in our room for a bit and did a bit of girly bonding over very girly chat! We then headed for dinner of this amazing BBQ, they love a good Barby there I've been here for three days and had one twice! The restaurant suddenly turned into this massive party place where all the locals were piling in so we had a few drinks (so expensive here!) and a dance but an early night as everyone was so ...

    ... I saw all those years ago it's now been replaced with a bronze one and the original one is now in a nearby museum it was still really neat to see. Amy got pretty car sick on the way so I tried to help…. I offered to play Charley Pride and give her some barley sugars but she only managed a grunt. So ungrateful!

    We got some shots of Hokianga Harbour which was absolutely beautiful. Just as I imagined ...

I planned to stay in the national park for 5 days to complete some of ...
