The Winterless North

A travel blog entry by kscullion291

After 2 full days on a bus and ferry we had come to our last part of our trip - a 3 day trip north of Auckland to Paihia & Cape Regina. It is known as the Winterless north so we were excited for a little bit of heat compared to wearing about 3 layers everyday! Unfortunately though after nearly 2 hours of driving north in the rain, with very strong winds, we had to turn back. Bad storms had flooded the Main Highway and the police ...

Playful dolphins

A travel blog entry by suebar


... that we would see. Promptly at 9:00 we cast off and headed out into the bay. Firstly we crossed to Russell which we had visited two afternoons before. We docked there to pick up two passengers and then we were off into the open water. Very quickly we had visitors. We were sailing through a very large pod of bottle nose dolphins. Some of them came very close to the catamaran, swimming around and under it and a couple even leapt out of the water. They ...

Day 68 Russell

A travel blog entry by dewdsontour


... ship didn't sink! Captain Rob then entertained us with tales of his days as a prospector of sapphires in Australia. Nothing like a bit of an adventure on the high sea! A grand day out.

It was a real effort and every so often I was going to give up - but wasn't sure how I'd get on walking or rolling back down. Finally made it to the top - completely out of breath and thought OMG - how am I going to get back down. I watched as quite a few took off - you have to put the board down - kneel ...

Beautiful Paihia

A travel blog entry by amyandrich


... more snacks and some eggs for the morning haha- pigs!. I end up falling asleep and Rich eats it all.

We enjoy another lay in, then make eggs & beans on toast. The hostel is actually pretty grubby, and the kitchen is gross - we don't really like cooking in there! We have a really lazy day, and do more USA planning. We go for a walk to check out the area, and really like it here!

Next up Auckland!
