      Burning dolphins

      ... ended up going
      to bed at 9.30pm and slept like a baby until 7.30am.

      The next morning I was keen to do the five hour hike round the bay to Russell, which was the first capitol of New Zealand and had a reputation many years ago as a real pirate town. I started the walk at 8.30am and from the off realised that it wasn't going to be incredibly easy. It started by going over rock pools between the sea and a cliff and then continued round the coast until it hit ...

      I hadn't really explored much of the area we camped at. This morning I take a brief walk and spot banana plants growing on the river banks. They seem a little out of place, and certainly aren't native, but a sign that this northern part of New Zealand is sub tropical and has the climate to allow such plants to thrive.

      We head over to the East coast, to the town of Kerikeri. We visit Rainbow Falls. Kirsty takes this a little too literally and falls over a crack in the ...

      ... immediately, and not too expect good news. I made the call and indeed it was very bad news. Having lost her eldest brother on New Year's Day this year, her next eldest brother we found out passed away suddenly at his home the previous day. So all in all - a pox day. 25th just had a gentle stroll around this very pretty town and took it real easy, still feeling grot but things are improving. Frequent toilet visits have stopped so just taking it nice and ...

      Leaving the anonymous Auckland suburb and a quick overnight stop at whangerei in a beautiful hostel (in Northland) but sadly also the coldest (it had quite a lot of competition, have I mentioned how cold it is here and the fact they don't have heating???) I have had the misfortune of sleeping in, I arrived in the area rather non imaginatively called Far North land... This is an area of enormous Maori and European history in ...

      ... huge and awesome gluten free pizza for lunch, which also lasted till dinner time! We spent the afternoon attempting to catch a ferry to Russell, across the water, but several miscommunications and misreading of timetables told us we were not meant to visit what used to be called the Hell Hole of the Pacific, due to the debauchery that went on there in the late 1800s. Instead we chilled with ice cream on the beach and planned our next day...
