Waka at Waitangi
I revisited the Treaty of Waitangi grounds with some trepidation as I was left feeling underwhelmed after my visit in 2002. This visit was infinitely better. I discovered that everyone with a New Zealand drivers licence can explore the grounds for free. The $18 guided tour around the Treaty grounds with Dennise Robinson was my favourite Bay of Islands tour.

Berhampmore, a small suburb in Wellington, has recently hatched a new shop. I’m not sure whether to call it a record store with a caffeine addiction, or a cafe with masses of vinyl, retro tee- shirts and posters on the side. Whatever it is, the premises is so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it ‘Evil Genius’.
