Tahiti - Pape'ete

After a comedy of errors last night (no ATMs working at the airport, the mobile number for our ride from the airport not working and then our room not being available when we finally made it to the hotel), we feel much improved after a decent sleep-in. We ended up staying where we originally intended (Teamo Hostel), and got the dorm room all to ourselves. The silver lining here was that it was cheaper (which makes a significant difference here) and we also got our own bathroom, so all was good in the end. We met the owners of the Hostel this morning, and they where very apologetic for the various screwups the night before.

10, 9, 8...

Just over 7 hours till we head off on our journey round the world, first stop Tahiti. We're both looking forward to a few days of doing very little except lying on the beach - we need to recover from the excesses of Christmas followed by the inevitable horror of condensing our life from a house down to a backpack. I really hope I manage to sleep on the plane...
