Where I stayed
We arrived at our accommodation for the night karioi backpacker's lodge; it's also the Raglan surf school. This funky little lodge is situated in 110 acres of beautiful native bush with hiking trails and near the famous Whale bay, where the local surfers met. This place is pretty amazing; you have lots to do-mainly outside.
After we had all booked in Tim or host invited us to join him for a trek up the side of the mountain, he said it wasn't far and only took about 45 mins- what is it with Kiwis always underestimating stuff
The main group had taken a slight detour and arrived back after us. After a shower and a change of clothes it was dinner time- Mexican. Lovely massive meal, some more beer and then bed .I was dead on my feet. My poor body doesn't know what the hell is going on I haven't done this much exercise in years... I think I'm going to pay tomorrow.
