Blowcarts  Karttrack

Getting blown around at Blokart heaven:

Papamoa has NZ's only purpose blokart land sailing track. We watched the tongue-in-cheek safety demo video with our instructor Luke and found there are 3 important rules. Let go of the rope, let go of the rope and finally, let go of the rope.

It's a friendly, family-run business and hiring is only a small part of what they do. Santa's wind workshop out the back is where they manufacture 1000 odd blokarts each year. Cousin Trev (who designed the website) challenged me to a race around the track and we managed to get the carts on 2 wheels with big wind gusts. It was such a rush and well worth a whirl if you're in Tauranga.


Pieshop   Eatpie

Eating award winning meat pies:

Pies are big business with The New Zealand pie market worth in excess of $145 million… Kiwis eat literally millions of pies every year.

Four time Supreme Pie Award winner Pat Lam, has an Asian bakery in Tauranga so we called in for a Steak and Cheesy. Apparently the secret to making a good pie is all in the pastry."Don't make it too thick, make it light and easy to effort. Nice and puffy and make sure not too much crumb."There were a record 4,336 pies from 386 bakeries entered in the contest, testimony that Pat is quite the baker. Going by his expression, I'm pretty sure little Jack agrees.


Indiana had some help planning her cycle route from Paul at If you want to do any touring in NZ these guys can sort you out.
