We had a bit of laying as the drive to Napier wasn?t going to be that long around 3 hours. We left around 9.30am and enjoyed one of the nicest drives of the week passing through plenty open green hills covered in cows, sheep, deer and more it was kind of the image you imagine before coming to New Zealand, the towns were very few and far between each other and it was endless view of hills, animals and wineries it really blew us away. Â We got to Napier at lunch time and found a site for the evening to park the van. We headed into town as we were told it was a nice place to visit. The town is famous for it?s Art Deco from the 1930?s and its very prominent everywhere you look around and the locals seemed to take it to heart as there are a lot of very old prestige cars driving around town. We also visited the scenic lookout before heading back to the motorcamp and playing our travel monopoly game to eat some time and act like some old age pensioners sipping on our tea and playing board games.Â Napier wasn?t the best of places but that could have been because we don?t like to spend money on things we don?t necessarily need so we don?t tend to pay for the tours or go to the wineries which we?re sure is probably well worth seeing but if we did everything in every town we go to we wouldn?t have any money left!! We had an early evening as we had an early start the next morning, as we?d planned to go to Taupo to revisit some of Ben?s family.
