Where I stayed
Back at Annie's Place for a few hours rest before part 2 of our penultimate adventure day. The same crew picked us up at lunchtime for our quad biking trip and took us to the same farm we flew over this morning. Joining us was a family of four with two kids only slightly older than the BOSS. After another safety briefing and a few laps of around the practice track, we took off around the farm. Quads are very different from motorcycles in their handling and cornering. For the first 2 laps I kept leaning into corners forgetting to steer.
The BOSS took to it as quickly just as she did the scooter on the first day of our holiday. She was ripping around the track being quite a daredevil - only getting bogged once and running off the track twice. She did quite a spectacular recovery at one point and I'm rather impressed with her skills - only 6 more weeks and she can legally get her scooter learner licence.
After an hour of quite exhilarating quad biking, we were very dusty - red from head to toe in fact - and quite tired. We went back to Annie's for a welcome shower then walked into town for a very late lunch and to do some souvenir shopping. The one and only criticism I have of Annie's is the distance from town. It's about half an hour walk but apart from that, it is one of the best, cleanest, funkiest hostels I've ever had the pleasure to stay at.
