After the excitement of Queenstown, I was looking forward to the last 4 days of my NZ trip laying on the beautiful north beaches and sailing. That was until the rain started which was on the bus to Paihia and continued until I arrived back in Auckland today. Mostly watched tv and slept. Part of traveling I am told. I leave for Austraila (Cairns) tomorrow and start my scuba lessons. I heard it is hot there. Hope to download pictures soon if possible and if I have time.
