We left Dargaville Saturday morning without further delay, it being a very uninspiring town, and drove to the Kauri Museum at Matakohe. This was an excellent museum with massive kauri trunks showing the age of the tree, machinery used in the old felling years and hundreds of examples of the gum they used to get from live kauris and from underground …
... with fish including a solid wall of blue maomao. Next up to 'the far north' to Henderson Bay. I spent the day visiting Cape Reinga (the north tip of NZ where the two seas meet) and then sand boarding on enormous sand dunes at 90 mile beach. Finally I went to read my book on a beach near the hostel. I was the only one for miles it's so deserted up there. Now I'm in the Bay of Islands enjoying a lazy few days until I head back down to Auckland to fly out to Hong Kong, only a week until I am ...
... gibt es Bier und Wein auch im Supermarkt zu kaufen, was aber auch zu komischen Situationen führen kann: Alkohol darf zwar ab 18 konsumiert werden, aber die Verkäufer sind berechtigt, nach einem Ausweis zu fragen, sofern man unter 25 aussieht. Nun glaubt zwar (leider) niemand mehr, dass Michi so jung wäre, bei Judith war das aber einige Male anders, so gut erhalten, hach! Problem für uns war nur, dass bei Ausländern lediglich der Reisepass als Ausweis akzeptiert wird, und, nachdem ...
... Pa, the place the Maori would retreat to in war with other tribes. When we got to different levels of flat land at the top, we knew that wasn’t natural. Then Harvey spotted shells and rocks that had probably been used to open the shells, and large trees among them a Kauri, well, we were excited! We sat down in the grass at the top, gazed at the landscape and had a snack. Wow, what a ...
An early start saw us leave the Cosy Cottage just after 8am (early for us!) and head for the thermal wonderland (their description, not ours) of Wai-O-Tapu. An hour's stroll around the park saw some fantastic coloured thermal pools and some not so nice coloured mud pools. Then we dashed off to the Lady Knox Geyser which is triggered to erupt every morning (for the past 80 years!) at 10:15am. It sounds a little fake but they actually put some soap like substance in it which induces ...

Great value at 99 dollars, there was little point in paying another 50 dollars for harbour side for one night when it gets dark at 6.00 pm. Room was very spacious, with a large bed and a good shower. With the sun out on that side late into the day it was also very warm, I suspect the other side would have cooled down much quicker.
