The end of a Visa

A travel blog entry by mables


... busses, and attractions that I will only over time forget. This wasn’t the trip I needed. This wasn’t the adventure I wanted. This wasn’t the story I wanted.

My plan was to backpack around Australia WOOFing or working for strangers for room and board. Then I started to doubt myself. I had already signed up to work for one host, but what if we didn’t get along. They lived in the middle of nowhere. It was a risk to ...

Off to Auckland and Penguins

Our time with Mick and Zara was unfortunately drawing to a close. Before we went our separate ways, we found time to stop off at the cool little surfing town of Raglan on the west coast for lunch on the way back up towards Auckland.
