DAY 2. More Germans

NEW ZEALAND | Fri, 28 Oct 2016 | By joyaroundtheworld | Views [487]

Awoke at 9 and took a much needed shower. I'm sure my dorm mates appreciated it. Packed up my things and brought them down to the storage area and had fruit for breakfast as I enjoyed free wifi in the hostel lounge. It really is sad how we are all glued ... Read more >

DAY 1. Top Bunk Sleeper

NEW ZEALAND | Thu, 27 Oct 2016 | By joyaroundtheworld | Views [613]

Finally departed LA after a frustrating but fortunate overnight layover. The flight to Fiji was long and hard to sleep through. Fiji was cloudy but humid and adorned a small, rundown airport. Grabbed a coffee and waited a few hours for the next flight.... Read more >

After landing at Auckland international on the 30 Dec 2015, we immediately got some weird looks from people while collecting our luggage, hauling round a bike box and panniers trying to liase with bus drivers to get us into Auckland city centre with ... Read more >

Lessons Learned: 'Murica

USA | Tue, 24 Nov 2015 | By wheresmypants | Views [362]

Well, I never wrote a closing entry to my trip. I suppose in some ways writing this meant I had to face that it was really over! During my last few days in New Zealand, I met some wonderful people, including Mani, who runs Intersex Awareness New Zealand.... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Mon, 19 Jan 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [394]

I regret spending four days in Auckland. The highlight of our time there was an afternoon spent at The Backyard Bar in North Auckland with my friend Leigh (who I met at surf camp in Morocco last year). Local DJ's, an epic water slide and a brood of ... Read more >

Path to Decision

NEW ZEALAND | Thu, 8 Jan 2015 | By nesrin | Views [412] | Comments [1]

It feels so good to finally say "I don't know exactly. May be three months, may be more, we'll see!" when people ask me for how long I am traveling. Before, the answer would be, and it always has been; "just two weeks, becauseI need to go back to work".... Read more >

Airport Adventures

USA | Sun, 30 Nov 2014 | By aamato20 | Views [564] | Comments [1]

I'm in my third airport in 24 hours and will shortly begin my journey to number four. I've been on vacation a little over a day now and all I've seen are airports; although the Sydney airport is quite nice and has free wifi, score! It hasn't been the ... Read more >

Auckland, the cleanest city in the world.

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 26 Jan 2014 | By elizabethkfmurphy | Views [679]

Kia Ora! Here I am after 3 days in Auckland, and what a city it is! Auckland is very clean and very calm. I know what you're thinking, if you ask anyone from New Zealand they say that it's very busy and commercial. I guess that puts the rest of New ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Thu, 17 Oct 2013 | By globalgabi | Views [461]

Well, time to leave. Hard to say good bye to friends. One eye is smiling, the other has a tear.  Will miss Nico. Had my last dinner with him on the way to the airport. Yummy, yummy. Finally made it Gina's where we'd been wanting to go for a long ... Read more >

Kia Ora New Zealand!

NEW ZEALAND | Mon, 10 Jun 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [981]

Kia Ora New Zealand. I have packed so much into the 24 days I have been here, seen so much and yet I leave with so much left unseen. It is certainly a land to be explored and I have thoroughly enjoyed discovering some of the wonders it holds. With ... Read more >

Auckland Arrival

NEW ZEALAND | Sat, 18 May 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [1242]

The aircraft breaks cloud cover as we begin our descent into Auckland. I am struck firstly by the number of islands and secondly by how densely populated the area is. I think I presumed that the cities here would be small and compact. Auckland shatters ... Read more >

Days 2&3: Hobbiton and Auckland

NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 30 Apr 2013 | By annacarlson | Views [1183] | Comments [3]

Day 2 - Hobbiton Reasearch and asking people for reccomendations saved me $100NZ just in one day. I found a cheaper way to get to Hibbiton other than the expensive private coaches just by asking someone if they had heard of anything. It was a long ... Read more >

The Long Flight and Day 1: Auckland and Waiheke Island

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 28 Apr 2013 | By annacarlson | Views [654] | Comments [2]

I LOVE Air New Zealand! that was by far the best 13 hour period I have ever spent on a plane. First - there was an individual television screen at every seat and the in-flight entertainment started as soon as you got on the plane - not after take-off.... Read more >

This summer we spent a great family day at Tiritiri Matangi Island in the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland. We drove to North Harbour, about an hour north of Auckland, and caught the ferry (360 Discovery Cruises) from there. It took about 35 minutes to reach the ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Mon, 9 Apr 2012 | By mudskipper | Views [687]

Intro: This blog summarises our NZ holiday. We seem to only do an overseas trip once every 3 years, and what with our son now 15yo, I had wondered if this may be the last time he would want to travel overseas with us. Considering this, I wanted ... Read more >
