|As the weather was again awful and foggy we headed straight for the Bay of Islands, a long drive bypassing Auckland as we knew we would be flying from there in a couple of days. We arrived in Whangarei late afternoon and decided to book ourselves on a tour of the islands the next day, to Lous shock our bank card and only money source left was missing and after much discussion we rushed out of the internet place to cancel the card. With $80 to our name and Fiji ahead of us things did not look good and then it dawned on Lou where the card was, yes you guessed it behind the bar in Lake Taupo!!! Now at best this was a 9 hour drive back for a third time to where we had just left and with only 2 days left in New Zealand we were not happy bunnies. We drove back until late at night and parked by the side of the road in the only rest area we could find which just happened to be on the busiest freeway in NZ!! To top off a dreadful end to a dreadful day Paul sat on our disc of Milford Sound breaking 400 pics of the most beautiful place we have visited yet, so we have no pics of all the walks and amazing scenary we saw!!! A lot of crying later we tried in vain to fall asleep.........
