Travel Blogs from Russell
... farmers market and browsed the souvenir shops for the first time. Lots of the regular kitchen or very expensive native handicraft. One more walk on the oh so peaceful and picturesque beach and we are back in our hotel. It was such a well deserved relaxing day and a good way to unwind our very active trip.

We went back to our hotel for a bit before heading out for dinner at The Gables restaurant. We shared a whole red snapper with beurre blanc, kumara (sweet potato) mash and salad. It ...
Day 8 & 9: Today was the day we picked up the campervan (we've named him Chester) that we will be staying in for the rest of our travels in New Zealand! We were worried that it was going to be really small but we were pleasantly surprised at how much space and storage there actually was. First stop was Whangarei - we arrived in the evening and got settled into the campsite, opened a few beers and relaxed. In the morning we went ...
