Over the hills to Ahipara

... legs got tired we were back in the saddle for the final 40km.

Lovely climbs and descents followed through more beautiful countryside and after 20km I got another puncture! Luckily we had just passed Tim in the waggon so did a quick u turn and he changed my wheel this time.

Carrying on, with Bas for company to lead us up the last climb, we had a great run through the hills before we suddenly saw Tim heading in the opposite direction in ...

Sandtrails, Yaka and Realization

A travel blog entry by journeyer


... ajar and I could feel the cool night air against my skin and it tingled. And this moment continuing on to my last waking moment right before fading off to sleep under my warm covers, I realized that the awe and wonder, the stillness, the quiet sounds of silence with no silence in the late night/early morning hours were for me. I am at home. I will enjoy the sunsets but probably not pick up my camera other than to snap some memory shots – shooting ...

A travel blog entry by sheelaghmaureen

    The facilities are excellent, property is well kept. I would recommend the motor camp . We stayed in a double room with bath in the lodge. Less than a mile from 90 mile beach. 75 nz dollars for a double room with bath.The television wasn't working in the room (Unit 1 )shower and toilet where clean .The kitchen had everything you need with a nice lounge area .
