Travel Blogs from Paihia

Waitangi, Paihia, Russel... Wow!

A travel blog entry by lindaandchris


Today we packed it in!

We began the day at Waitangi, one of my favourite sites in New Zealand. It was here that some members of the Maori tribes and British Pakeha leaders signed the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. It's a contentious treaty to this day, largely due to the fact that it's written in two languages, and the two documents …

Cathedral Cove... and up to Paihia

A travel blog entry by lindaandchris


This morning we got up, started to pack, and then caught the water taxi from Hahei Beach to Cathedral Cove.

Man, how I hate Air Canada! Next came the stomach flu …

Lorraine had an awkward encounter when she went round the side of the boat to get a good picture and saw our tour guide butt naked in his room! Awkward! We went down and had a decent breakfast, there was an option of snorkelling but the water was absolutely freezing and a bit murky compared to ...
