    Everything is as it should be

    There are many places to stay in the small community of Paihia and the Kingsgate is a fine choice. It is on the main road next to the water, has lovely big rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, and best of all free breakfast. Not just continental breakfast, the whole shibang of a breakfast with meats, eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, etc...

    The rooms offer the anonymous feel of motel rooms anywhere and so once inside you can forget where the room is actually located, this is a plus or minus depending on your preference.

    Would recommend it for those needing or desiring a quiet, clean, spacious room with electrical outlets located in the right places.

    A day in the sand!

    ... br> After a while on the beach, it was time for a drive up a creek and up to a sand dune. Once we had stopped, the bus driver gave a quick briefing on the best way to surf a sand dune, and we headed up the dune to give it a try. Climbing sand dunes is hard work, but it is worth all the pain to be able to ride down on the board, heading straight for the creek at the bottom. I had so much fun I had to go up again, even though my leg doesn't do ...

    We finally have wifi after a few days on the road! Here's an update on our last day in Auckland (we'll be back later) and our first day of our road trip!! On Saturday We visited a Superstore called 'The Warehouse' to pick up a few things before we headed to the absolutely beautiful Muriwai beach. The store is a bit like TK Maxx with lots of toys, clothes and food. In the children's department they had an array of different superhero masks from the ...

    ... and yes, we were going to use Hundertwasser's toilets. John and I saw these many years ago, made famous by Billy Connelly and later by Bill and Joy. I tried to get a tea towel with their picture on but to no avail.

    We continued our journey to the Kauri forest where a a guide took us on another board walk but this time through the forest. He told us about the threat the possum poses to the life of these huge trees. (The ...

    ... New Zealand can't offer? Our arrival in Paihia was greeted with a long golden beach, calm turquoise waters and a wonderful view of some islets not far from the shore. We drove through the very busy seafront town and found parking space it was free for 60 minutes. That would give us plenty of time to go to the iSite and get some accommodation and prices on tours. The lady at the information desk told us about a good place to go and stay, The ...

    Mission beach to magnetic island

    ... 15 so we just chilled in the waiting room, then when it was time to board the boat we went and sat upstairs... It was very windy and the boat seemed to jump over the waves which was strange!! When we finally arrived in magnetic island we had to get another bus to the hostel, the hostel seems quite nice.. Everyone keeps ranting about how good it is but it has nothing on Fiji!! The rooms as soo hot and stuffy, they have a small fan in which ...
