Flew in to Tauranga last night. Near disaster when I discovered my rental car booking has disappeared into the ether, but managed to steal a car and got to try out the GPS. It really is simple – just plug in and it works.
I’m staying at the end of Mt Maunganui, very close to the beach. Is somewhat weird being here without the place overflowing – my previous visits have been over summer holidays. The last time I was here, I split my head open by accidentally head butting a tree. Yes it was New Year’s Eve!
By coincidence, Lewis Holden was also in Tauranga, so we caught up for a drink on Maunganui Street and plotted the death of the Queen. No, no, I mean we plotted what we would do once the Queen dies, not bring that date forward 🙂
