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.

... and washing our things. It took about 4 hours out of the day. Matty wasn't best pleased that the washing had took so long so he decided he needed proper food because camper food is **** (apparently). He treated himself to a fry up breakfast and bought me some nachos. It was really good to have a slightly more normal meal. Noodles and rice does get boring. We had a wander around in the afternoon, there's not too much to see but I enjoyed looking in some of the touristy shops. There ...
... we had just walked 7km we didn't really fancy it. So we decided we'd try and hitchhike back to Paihia considering that road led straight there. It only took two minutes of half heartedly holding out our thumb before and a man driving a minibus picked us up. Easy as that! In the evening we decided to check out a few bars (to make up for the previous night) and bumped into some locals. It was a fun night that ended going back to two gay guys, Dom and Johan's, hotel room ...
... to New Zealand. While Vanuatu was devastated, all New Zealand had to deal with was a few palm branches scattering the streets.
One week in a hostel, sharing a kitchen with people who have never had to do the dishes in their life and being forced to listen to what we now call “German Backpacker” music was enough for us. We booked a bus ticket south and a small cabin in Whangarei. Ahhh, peace and quiet here we ...
Green lipped mussels, L&P soda, Monteith's Summer Ale, Hokey Pokey ice cream...must be summer in New Zealand! Had a great day today at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and a ferry ride across the bay to Russell.
The Waitangi Treaty Grounds is the birth place of the nation of NZ as we know it. In 1840, the confederated Maori tribes and the British crown signed a document to create New Zealand. Unfortunately, the translation of the document in English and ...
The sun! It burns!
I'm back in Auckland after a trip up to Paihia in the Bay of Islands or the land of eternal summer since even if the depth of winter it never drops below 0 there. This is the first chance I've had to write an update.
Christmas Day was pretty fantastic, in Las Vegas all of the locals come to the casinos to have Christmas Day buffets and we followed suit. We went to an Italian restaurant which was pretty reasonably priced considered ...
