Hi folks. After an epic day of travel across the USA and the South Pacific, which involved crossing the international date line going East and so for us 16 Feb. 2017 never really happened, we finally made it to Aotearoa. Went straight to Rotorua to enjoy some mud pools and Maori culture, then to Taupo and Hawkes Bay where we have spent some time HelpX-ing. That is doing odd jobs for families in return for food and lodgings. This was really interesting and gave us the opportunity to meet some real Kiwi’s. We have now made it to Wellington and are looking forward to a few days exploring the city. Be in touch again soon.
