Paihia

We arrive in Paihia late afternoon, after diving the Poor Knights, and we're both pretty tired – we chill out with a glass of wine on the balcony (it’s rare we have one so we like to use 'em when we do!) and have an early night.

We explore the town the next morning. It’s small, so doesn’t take too long. First stop …

After picking up the camper van just South of Auckland we went straight back up North (along the East side) of Northland. This is the thin peninsular the Maori people believe is the diving board for their souls to travel on. We spent the first night in a Department of Conservation campsite ...

We ate, relaxed in the sun and because of the lack of toilets Sarah was almost caught by a camper van taking a wee in the bushes. When we felt refreshed we hopped back in the car to continue. This part of the drive was mainly up steep hills. The car managed fine and all the swerves ...
