Have to catch the 7:55 train to Auckland today and it's definitely a looooonnng journey, especially since we had a 40 minute delay, so I only reach Auckland at about 7:30 so not much to say about today. It was a nice train though, and quite quiet, plus at least this time I could actually see the views! The north island has just had the best weather the whole time, I am impressed ...

The picking season for the grapes is started in New Zealand since a couple of weeks. Even if the temperature is over 20 degrees every day, fall is coming up very quickly and the grapes have to be picked! I and the others WWOOFER start the day at 8:00 am, (it is not that bad!). We arrived at the vineyard and there were bottles of champagne and free lunch, we were all very surprised and happy but when I started the day ...

... the country properly once Jordan and I set off on the kiwi experience bus on 1st march. Next week we're going up to the Bay of Islands for a four day trip. The photos look beautiful so I'm really looking forward to it and meeting people along the way. The BUNAC group who I travelled out here with we're awesome. Most of them have left Auckland now on the kiwi and stray busses to various places across the country. I will miss them a lot but ...

Long Bay and the cinema

A travel blog entry by billy.mann.7169 on Jan 22, 2014

... driving it back home. Loaded our beach gear in and drove to Long Bay. On the way we bought food at Albany in a supermarket familiar to us from last year. It revels in the unpleasant name of Pak N Save. It is, however, cheap and has plenty of choice. To the beach! We all swam in the hour before lunch. There was a welcome covering of cloud to stop the old folks burning to a frazzle. The parkland behind the dunes is equipped with FREE electric ...
