Checked out of Novotel. :- ( Sad face for this was a lovely Hotel. 5 star and worth it.

We breakfasted at a place called Relish also on Tutanekai Street, Wendy had a wonderful meal of poached eggs on herded mash with hollandaise sauce and smoked salmon, while I had roasted field mushrooms, shaved parmesan and rocket. These meals could have been served in any really good café in Melbourne for the quality of cuisine and presentation offered here. Well done to them.

Then we headed off to Napier, the Art Deco capital of NZ. We took Motorway 2 south out of Rotorua down to Taupo on the most massive lake in NZ. We stopped there and bought a few CDs. Why you ask. Well a have a hire car but just about ever corner you turn while driving here in NZ you loose the radio station and have to go searching for a new one through the static. So we thought it would be a good idea to have some CDs on stand-by. Hope this is a helpful hint.

Arrived in Napier and the town lay-out is a bit confusing for the uninitiated. But you get use to that quickly.

The YHA here is a bit average. It is a 2 storey old creaky boarding house. But it did ok for a night.

Singapore restaurant on Hastings Street - Good food but poor service. We were disappointed at this..
