Got to Paihia about 3pm. Nice weather and we had a good smooth drive. Found our room at the Sea Spray Suites but the TV didn't work properly so we changed rooms to a better more private room with a table and a nicer more private outdoor area.

I realised that I had left the wine in the fridge of the first room, so I went back to get …

To Swim or not to Swim?

A travel blog entry by fuzzyfruit


GR: For our first big adventure in New Zealand we decided to go it alone and hire a campervan to explore the Northland. After much faffing and hanging around, we picked up Doris, who was to be our ride for the next week. She was a lot more spacious than we had anticipated so we had plenty of space to spread out, and even had our own toilet and shower as well as cooking facilities and a double bed. Because of our late start, we didn't ...

Going up north

... commentary about the places we were passing for almost the entire journey. Much of it was interesting, thank goodness. Our first stop was at the Parry Kauri Park to see to huge kauri trees. Kauri trees grow in the northern part of NZ and are very tall with branches beginning high up the trunk. They were therefore ideal for making into the hulls of canoes. The largest kauri tree, although we did not see it, is some 16 metres in girth ...

Hundertwassen Toilets & Glow-worms!

... we'd stop to take in the view, and on more than one occasion D had to dodge hawks that were munching on roadkill! We worked our way down to the lovely town of Russell, where we whiled away a few hours wandering the streets, visiting the waterfront, a historic hotel and pub, the church, and poking in and out of shops. We drove up to Flagstaff Hill for the views, then wended back out to the water to take ...

Bay of islands

A travel blog entry by sheilacruise


... as well as people along the banks giving us a wave and a cheer (it could be the boat race) there are two catamarans each taking 32 people. We are taught some warrior noises and tongue poking which we direct at the other catamaran. Back on dry land and we head into the little town by shuttle bus (handy it's free) we have some good old fish and chips (takeaway of course) seat and eat by the waters edge. Lots of seagulls but not too much of a ...

    TV didn't work in our first room, so we swapped rooms to a better, more private room. The internet connection wasn't very good and we had to call them to come and fix it. Once everything was working though, it was all good. Nice touch to have some fudge waiting for us with a welcome note in the rooms.
