The drive from Waitomo to Hamilton only took about an hour so once we'd checked into the hostel there was plenty of time to look around the city centre.

There wasn't much to do so we spent most of our time shopping.  The only thing of interest we found was the place where the Rocky Horror Show idea was conceived in Richard O'Brien's barbershop.  The spot was marked by a statue of one of the characters.

As it was Shrove Tuesday we had a bit of a blowout at Pizza Hut that night.  For lent we decided to try and shift the extra pounds we've piled on by giving up crisps and chocolate.

The next morning after check out we headed back to the city centre so that we could meet Theresa's friend from work, Katie, for coffee and a catch up.  She left the UK in December to train to be an airline pilot in New Zealand.  Theresa is looking forward to the day she hears Katie's voice from the cockpit as she flies off on holiday.

After finishing our coffee/tea/hot chocolate we said our goodbyes and the two of us drove on northwards through Auckland to the Northland.

Love Theresa and Mark xxxxxx
