I laugh as I write this, so don’t feel sorry for us. We chose the “budget option” when booking a room in Napier. This seaside town is cute and quaint and expensive. But when we arrived in our triple room, we had second thoughts. It’s the size of a prison cell with a bunk bed and a single. And we are right above the kitchen where Asians and Germans have been burning every meal since we arrived. It’s kind of hilarious.
So, I promised to blog about the good with the ugly, and here’s our first taste of it. It’s not always waterfalls and sunshine in New Zealand. Sometimes it’s sketchy hostels and smelly backpackers, too. Wait, maybe that smell is me. Better go stand in line for the shower. Love y’all!
