|After no sleep a very tired Lou drove onto Taupo arriving in record time to collect her bank card at 8.30am from the very apologetic landlady. To try and cheer ourselves up we went to the aquatic centre before driving onto Auckland. As a treat we decided to stay in a cabin but everywhere was full to bursting as it was anzac weekend. We ended up in a motel just outside of Auckland with lots of comfort food and rubbish TV. It was only when an exhausted Lou woke a very tired tbag up at 2am covered in bites that we realised the place had bed bugs the nightmare it seems just didn't want to end.............
