Pete and Lynda's 2013 Trip To New Zealand travel blog

Beautiful beaches with nobody on them

Today was a travel day, about 160 miles from Auckland to KeriKeri in the North of the North Island to an area named Bay Of Islands. Here's a map of our route.

We actually followed a slightly different route, branching off to the East just North of Auckland to follow the country roads and visit lots of small coastal towns with beautiful beaches.

Also learned a New Zealand phrase today - "chilly box", that's "cooler". KInda like the NZ version better!

Big contrast now from the busting city, very rural and quiet. Did find a great restaurant though, cunningly named "Food"!

So far, the cattle have outnumbered the sheep by at least 10-1!
