We took a nice drive up to Whangarei and spotted the best beach we had seen called Langs Beach and chilled and swam there before going to Whangarei for the big New Years shop! We pitched our tents in Nick's parents chestnut grove where we would sleep that night and headed back to the house. New Years party was a blast - at least what we remember of it. We had a great BBQ and then got stuck into some evil drinks called 'Champaign Cocaine' which consisted of Vodka, Champagne and red bull.
They knocked the sox of Scott and me (mainly me, says Scott), so much that we ended up sleeping on a blow up mattress in the garage with a water pump grinding away all night. One of the couples though walked for over an hour trying to find the chestnut grove which was only 7 minutes away but they got so lost that they ended up back at the house and slept on the floor in the lounge!
It was great fun and thanks to all the guys who let us crash around the bach and looked after me on NYE. I owe you!
With heads still pounding and threats of rather being pregnant next year than drinking on New Years, we were back on the road and off to the next stop...Paihia in the Bay of Islands!
