Hello all, We had a great time in New Plymouth. We stayed with an old work colleague and friend Dr. Sharat Shetty, his lovely family, wife Katherine and daughters Rachel and Mia. It was so nice to sleep in a real bed after nearly 3 weeks in the campervan. They were the perfect hosts showing us around, feeding and watering us as well as introducing us to some friends. Sharat cooked up some delicious Indian cuisine for a house party on the Sunday which I had no problem in scoffing and washing down with some cold beers. We went out for dinner one evening at a local restaurant after being caught up by the ladies from giving them the slip to the pub. We met a friend of the families, a local architect who has designed some pretty impressive homes and buildings in town.
All in all a fantastic 4 nights with great company in a pretty setting just off the beach at Sugar Loaf Mountains. We were sad to leave but were sent on our way with rucksacks full of clean clothes and tummies full of home cooking.
Much love C & P xx
