We stayed 3 nights there, because we liked it so much there. Very friendly people, they booked the tour for us, the motel is very good located, you can walk everywhere.

Had yet another nice day, a little more relaxed being our last day in town. Did some short hikes around the bay, collected shells, went to an arts and crafts market in town, took a short 10 minute drive to a nearby waterfalls. We're both tired but looking forward to our next adventure further up the coast of Northland.
Arrived in Paihia North Island this afternoon. Most of the day was getting our rental car, driving, getting oriented in a new place, etc. No photos yet, has been a busy day but no real sightseeing yet. Looking forward to a few days in this rural seaside town and seeing some of the local stuff...

It wasn't far from the Cape that the first Maori arrived around the 13th Century from somewhere in Polynesia. NZ ...
... a large part of the climb. The views from the top made it all worth it, they were stunning views and we all really felt like we had achieved something impressive, which was a great feeling. Climbing down was even scarier, I've got a few videos that might give you lot a heart attack. We pretty much slid all the way down the mountain, and my shoes were completely filled with gravel! The walk was brilliant, we really did feel like we were in mordor! You'll see ...
... in the forest had something of Jurassic Park, with all the ferns and strange plants grown and sounds coming from deep within the forest.
After this the 2 hours and 6 km we had enough of trees and even the viewpoint on the map could not tempt us anymore.
There was still a 100 km drive back to the motel ahead of us.
For dinner we decided to compensate a little for the massive spendings ...
