Today I travelled further North to get to Mangonui, which is a fishing village and the main town of Doubtless bay. It took about 3 hours to get there from Whangarei. The village itself is very small, yet somehow large enough to have two fish and chip shops! I had decided to spend a couple of nights as it's quicker and cheaper to get coach trips up to visit Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach. So I headed straight to the information centre to book onto a tour for tomorrow. I took the short stroll around the village and then headed back to the hostel. The hostel that I stayed in was actually the towns original hotel and it didn't look like much had changed since it had been built- which was both good and bad! I spent the evening with the other two backpackers at the hostel, watching a TV with only 2 channels!
