    Impressive research Mr Berrie!

    Very similar to what we did and it was the best time ever!

    Im sure your gonna love every minute of it, I am so jealous, I wanted to cry reading through that, brought back so many memories, please when you go to Rotarua, stay in Hot Rock (part of the Base hostels) and go and see the bar man in the bar and get him to take you to hot and cold. Ill message you nearer the time and ill get in touch with him!! You’ll love it!
