Letztes Wochenende unternahm ich mit einer Gruppe von Rachel's Freunden eine achtstündige Wanderung mit grandioser Aussicht.

Wir übernachteten in Paihia, starteten frühmorgens mit der Fähre Richtung Cape Brett und um gut 8 Uhr mit einem steilen Aufstieg. Da ich die letzten Wochen sportlich nicht …

A Big Bay

A travel blog entry by roger-annie


Today we got up nice and early to go on a boat trip round the Bay of Islands. Annie got herself all dosed up with kwells though thankfully the wind was a lot less severe although the sea had not really settled down. The weather was warm (25 degrees C) and sunny.

    Very nice place, not right at beachfront but that also means that you don't hear much of the nightlife.
    Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.
