    Warme Wildniswanne

    October 23, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Nachdem wir den Vormittag in Auckland ,eine nicht sehr interessante Stadt, verbracht haben (ein Ausblick vom Mt. Eden habt ihr ja gestern bekommen) sind wir nach Hahei auf der Halbinsel Coromandel gefahren. In der Nähe gab es einen Hot Water Beach, ein Strand, bei dem man bei Ebbe an einer Stelle Löcher buddeln kann, um heißes Wasser freizulegen und ein Bad im Freien zu nehmen! Das Wasser war an manchen Stellen sogar zu heiß um rein zu gehen :ORead more

    Spa day

    February 12, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    After having to put earplugs in overnight as the rainfall was so loud we were woken to the most beautiful view.

    Headed off to hot water beach where you did holes in sand to allow the hot spring water through... Omg it was hot. I couldn't believe how water tht hot could be found on the beach and the contrast between that and the cold rough seas was very evident.

    After tht the long trek to cathedral cove. We had hoped to do the snorkel trail at gemstone Bay but sea was mucky n swells. Headed onto sting Ray Bay but didn't even go down to beach just viewed it on the rocks.

    Cathedral cove was pretty but again water disappointing I was expecting turquoise water not the mucky tea colour.

    The hike there n back was hard going... Well for me. Decided to make our way towards paihia and stopped at a beautiful beach called Ray rest, which was covered on loads n loads of sea shells n hardly any lsand seen.
