Day 9 was a very stressful day. We were meant to leave Napier and spend the night in Palmerston North, but we couldn't rent a car that we could drop off in PN, so we had to rent a car from Napier and drop it back off in Napier, so we ended up staying an extra night. Why so? Well, I really wanted to see Norsewood and Dannevirke, and there was limited ways of getting there without a car.
We got our car, drove to Hastings, Norsewood, Dannevirke and the town with the longest name, before arriving back in Napier around 9pm. It was a long day but totally worth it! I'm so grateful to my friend for driving for such a long time. I will never forget it.
