We had been warned that food in New Zealand was expensive and we were fully prepared to reign ourselves in after our jaunt around America which had proved to be a gastronomic delight.

We would then utilise Subway and their foot long sandwiches to fill in the inevitable lunchtime gaps, as we had done in America. Simple, what could possibly go wrong?
