Let' get started in NZ

A travel blog entry by kerstin_trips


Da wir gerade so den Flug erreicht hatten (es war NICHT unsere Schuld!!), sind wir bisschen gestresst im Flieger angekommen... aber dann hat alles gut geklappt. Es war ein schoener ruhiger Flug nach Auckland, ca. 3 Stunden nur ueber Wasser, echt angenehm.

Wir kommen von der Westseite her und schon beim Anflug auf Neuseeland - haaaa - was …

First workaway in New Zealand

A travel blog entry by debsndarren


So workaway.info is a website that we've registered ourselves on. It allows you to get in contact with people throughout NZ who are looking for some help around the house / business in exchange for free bed and usually some food.

After spending 4 nights in an apartment in Auckland CBD and not getting the campervan until 3rd March, we …

Kia Ora!

A travel blog entry by sbgibbons

And so I'm off again on my next adventure. Sydney kept me for much longer than id planned I loved my time there but off I go again with a full rucksack for some more exploring. Im doing the Kiwi Experience which has had mixed reviews, some people say its full of drunken 18 year olds and I wont really get to see the real NZ but on the other hand ive heard thats its easy to meet new people, you don’t have to worry about organising anything and its easy ...

New Zealand Take Two

A travel blog entry by karensnare


... that the name of that cove was Shark Cove. Hmmm? After our stay in Auckland, we traveled to the island of Waheke. It was a beautiful place with a cute little town. We started the day off with Rewi cross fit workout on the beach which included a little bit of paddle boarding to the boat and back. There are a few vineyards on this island so since we did our workout we decided we must visit for some tastings. Then we traveled to Great Barrier Island a big island with few ...

North Island Part 1

A travel blog entry by roblund3


... into a poor athletic/circus performance with various rounds of 'thong (flip-flop) wanging' and the most ungainly trapeze (rope swing) routine courtesy of Mick. Starting off so (almost) graciously, he was quickly hanging upside down and enjoying the pendulum motion of the rope swing. Expecting big things thereafter, maybe the odd release and round off to finish, we were duly treated to the sight of Mick landing head first, definitely no 7.0 from Len on that one!!! ...

    We are working here and glad we are not paying for a room here.

    Karin is German and has been running the B & B for too long. She has just accepted an offer on the property which is a good thing.

    She is trying to run the place on her own using backpackers for cheap labour. We feel sorry for her as her partner is back home ill, so she's got a lot going on.

    Everything about the place is dated. The beds, mattresses, pillows, bedding, towels. It's a beautiful property....but its unloved.

    Breakfast consists of cereal, bread, juice (measured) and tea/coffee.

    95% of the guests we have spoken to her feel that the price is way too much and that Karin can be rude.

    Might be best to stay elsewhere.
