My mum was born in napier, we used to go down their to see my grandfather when I was little. I remember White Island too (I think that's what it's called) is that near napier?
white island is about a 2-3 hour drive north of napier.
i take my hat off to all you mummies that are studying. it must be so stressful juggling study and a family
We used to stay at a beach house there that was right by the water, you could see the volcano from the window. There was one other room (apart from the main bedroom) that had a double bed, the other had 2 single beds. Of course me and my brother were fighting over who got the double bed room.
Anyway mum flipped a coin and I won (that was her solution to almost every fight). After one or two nights my brother told me some story about the volcano. I can't remember it exactly, but it was along the lines of the smoke coming out means it's about the erupt at any moment, and because the room I was in was at the front I would be wiped out! I fell for it and ended up sleeping in the other room for the rest of the trip. Damn older brothers!
