Artist: Willy Mason
Album: Where the humans eat [2004]
Track: Gotta keep on moving
Why: Got this album from Stevie at Fat Camel and have been listening to it a lot ever since.

Finally got hold of Petelo and he said he would be another two weeks or so. That means he will be in Auckland next week fom now. To kill some time I went up north to Bay of Islands. Last day in Auckland a couple of us from Fat Camel played some football. It was a rainy day but still great fun. Afterwards we went to an Irish pub who served free food every Sunday. Fat Camel has free food as well but compared too Father Teds Fat Camels is only a snack. After three hours of wet football we all filled our plates to the max.

The day after the football I hed up north using my stray pass. Once in Paihia everyone went out on a boat trip except me. Need to save up some money. Too bad cos they saw both dolphins and orcas.
Been here in Paihia five days now just taking it easy, spending a couple of hours in the spa pool a day, some hiking and will probably hire a kayak tomorrow. Think I might stay here another two nights.

First night was crazy, all of us bonded quite well and two danish girls got everyone drunk with their card games. It was kareoke night as well and everyone had great fun.

I’m not the only one enyoing the spa pool, after a couple of days we built up our own spa pool club. Spending hour after hour every day with mostly the same people. Strangely I’m the only one that enjoys the ordinary pool. Thinks it’s about 12
degrees in that one, very refreshing after an hour in the hot spa.

Thank you for a great time here, Andi, Emma, Tim, Daniel, Annika,
Matti, “Dj Freaky” Ditte and Signe. And all those I don’t know the name
of.
