    Paihia & Cape Reinga

    April 3, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    My first trip with the kiwi experience bus is a fact. This bus will take me around the country, a kind of hop on, hop off system with lots of interesting stopovers.

    Cape reinga, where the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman sea meets, is my first stop. The Māori believe that their spirit is travelling to Cape Reinga after they die. At this spot their spirit can say a last goodbye and take off to Polynesia, the islands of their roots.
