Very well equipped rooms (kitchen with cutlery, pots, etc.). Spacious bathroom, balcony. Free Wi-Fi.

Leaving the ferry felt like I was on a completely different island, all of a sudden the brush was filled with cicadas and with a bit of drizzle before I boarded the ferry it almost felt like I was in a rainforest. This scenery changed to wet marsh land with strange wooden spikes in the ground, which a few hours later I found out were mangrove roots (always read ...
... them down as they're mostly pretty good). This was Saturday and the sun has been out most of the time ever since. (I write this on Thursday). A quick stop at Taipa market and the onto lunch at Mangonui, for Fish and Chips (at the locals new favourite, not the old famous place), = excellent. After, a waterfall or two before onto the Bay of Islands where the Waitangi treaty was signed. (Sorry ...
