Last weekend I rented a car a drove to Palmerston North for the latest Hurricanes rugby match (they lost this time). Arrived in the hostel to find that they put me in a room with 2 guys from Limerick & 2 from Wicklow. We had a good night out in one of the 4 local Irish bars which is already gearing up for Paddy's day (even if it was full of Scotish & English ex-pats). On the way back, I stopped off at Paraparaumu for a night. The sunset across the Tasman Sea was stunning. For any Munster fans reading, this is the birthplace of one Christian Cullen.
