    Pananui Beaches

    December 26, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Afterwards, we continued our drive down to Pauanui, and we have had a really nice relaxing afternoon walking on the beaches! A bit cloudy bit still really nice for a walk 😊

    Nachdem wir dann in Pauanui angekommen sind, entspannten wir gemütlich am Strand. Ein bisschen wolkig, aber dennoch angenehm 😊Read more

    Heading north

    December 15, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Woke up in the car park campsite that we had to ourselves. Decided the view wasn’t good enough to accompany our breakfast so we took a short drive to a nearby bay, parked up and enjoyed a waterfront view to start the day.
    Then headed further north to a surf spot. Lovely beach and some good surf but unfortunately there was a surf life saving competition on so the rental shops were closed. We watched a few rounds of kids competing and when the wind picked up we headed back to the van to explore trip advisor.
    Top of the list and close by was karangahake gorge so we set off. We arrived as it started to rain so I had a little nap and Louis did some admin. When the sun came out again we did a walk through the gorge and a tunnel that was running through a section, quite cool.
    We were then on the road again and heading further north to some free camping spots. The Lord of the rings movie has been the soundtrack for our past few journeys, with Louis reciting most of the film!
    We found the free camping spot, which had a great view of the beach. Next to us was a walk to a 360 view of the area which was well worth the climb. Some pretty impressive houses too.
    Back to the van for a shower, beer, pasta while we wait for sunset.

    Tairua, Neuseeland

    November 29, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Nach dem coolen Barbeque und einem guten Schlaf, hieß es für uns von den Coxons Abschied zu nehmen... Die ganze Familie war toll und vor allem Karla hat sich bis zur letzten Sekunde um uns gekümmert und uns verwöhnt.
    Wir haben uns dann auf den Weg zu der Halbinsel östlich von Auckland gemacht und haben unseren ersten Stop bei Mount Paku in Tairua gemacht. Kaum zu glauben wie warm es war 😎😍 die Sicht war awesome

    Heute wird richtig experimentiert beim Kochen!
    Cottage cheese mit Zwiebeln, Knoblauch, Kräuter dazu Kartoffel, Schinken und Käse, dass alles in Alufolie und in Ofen! Genial!
    Dank des schlechten Wetters gab es wenigstens ein paar Wellen zum Spaß haben 😁Read more

    In the Coromandel

    January 12, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 73 °F

    Today, Xerox and the kids are going to Slipper Island with the family. We're just putting them on the boat now. While they're away, I'm taking the Dad-mobile (aka van or people mover) and staying with a lovely couple of hashers and classic car enthusiasts in Turua. Sweet as!

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Vzdusnou carou "par metru", autem kolem cele zatoky snad 20 kilometru lezi primorske letovisko Pauanui, (pooodstatne) luxusnejsi dvojce nasi Tairuy. Jely jsme se sem podivat po dopoledni sichte a vyhlidnout si tady budouciho manzilka s vilkou a jachtickou ;-).
    A abychom nebyly az tak prizemni, prosly jsme se suprovnim mangrovovym lesikem. To (hajek ani milionare) u nas nemame.

    54th night - Pauanui

    April 11, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Am Donnerstag fuhren wir nach Hahei, wo wir uns Cathedral Cove angeguckt haben. Auf dem Weg dorthin, flog das kaputte Fenster beim Fahren auf. Richtig scheiße!

    Der Weg zur Cove war super anstrengend. Ich lief bergauf und bergab, Treppen hoch und runter. Dabei regnete es und die Laune sinkte.

    Als ich an der Höhle/ dem Tunnel ankam, hatte sich der Weg gelohnt. Der Ausblick war trotz Regen wunderschön und ich schoss natürlich wieder viele Bilder.

    Auf dem Weg zurück zum Bus, schaute ich mir noch zwei andere Strände an.

    Als wir zum Campingplatz am Strand in Pauanui fuhren, hielten wir noch am Hotwater Beach an. War nicht wirklich spektakulär.

    In Pauanui ging ich erstmal im Regen kalt duschen, murmelte mich dann ein und schrieb meinen Blog.

    While driving to our next hiking tour we past by a little village named Tairua with a hald Peninsula in front where you could almost drive to the top, leaving us only with a 15 minute steep ascent up to the top which gave us a great view up and down the coast as well as inland.Read more
