    Nice hostel with great friendly owners. Could do with a bit more space in the kitchen, but hostel was very busy this weekend so it's probably not normally that cramped!

    We picked up our hire car on monday morning (and got a free upgrade to a better car as ours wasn't ready yet!) and set off north out of Auckland to the Bay of Islands.

    This week I continued to stay with Roger and Barbara on the dairy farm. It is a lovely place to stay, very quiet, when the grandchildren are not there, and good to be out in the open air.

    At the tender age of 30, after 3.5 years of being a fully employed physician, I began my foray into hitchhiking. We made it to the Bay of Islands and decided to do a hike to an old lighthouse in Cape Brett. The hike was 17.4km of fairly steep up and downs with a hut at the end that we could stay in overnight and then hike back the next day. The …

    Redan min andra dag befann jag mig plötsligt, till min egen ganska stora förvåning, hoppandes ut ur ett flygplan på 16000 ft/5000 meter. Att hoppa fallskärm var helt klart något av det coolaste och häftigaste jag gjort! Tandem såklart - kändes tryggast att nån annan var ansvarig när jag själv var beredd på att vara rätt adrenalinstinn.. En annan …
