Napier - the "jewel in the art deco crown"

Nice fountain we found while we were waiting for the bus!


We got up feeling slightly dubious about whether we'd be on the bus or not. We haven't had a great track record with Kiwi Experience! Jerry was our bus driver and yes our names were on the list. Breathe a sigh of relief! The bus was full and we were all around the same age. Good signs so far. Rachel (Jerry's girlfriend), Chelsea and Toby (brother and sister from England), Lindsay and Catherine (from Newcastle - we picked them up in Napier), 2 Japanese girls (possibly the cutest ever), Lisa (an Aussie), Ralf (German), Yann (Suisse), Noreen (Dublin) and Anke and Daniella (also German).

We left Taupo and headed towards Napier, nicknamed the Art Deco jewel of the world.

We had lunch here and a wander round looking at the beautiful buildings.
