No mobile network, no Wifi, no street lights to talk of, no seat belts necessary as the speed limit is 25kms per hour, no buses, not much traffic, except bikes. Not much happens after 9pm but by then tourists and locals alike have been well fed and looked after and are all ready for bed, on this small but almost perfectly formed island, the eroded remnant of a volcano that erupted from the top of the Tasman Sea some 7 million years ago.
Now a mere 2 1/2% remains above sea level and for an island that is at its narrowest 0.3 kms wide and approx. 10 kms long you might well wonder what on earth there is to do or where to go.
Out into the wide ocean, widely differing in what it has to offer, up the mountains, the cliffs and the forests, spotting the birds, the eggs and fledglings and counting the stars because this is where they are brightest.
So if you think you like what you see come back to hear the adventures and see the pictures.
