The last New Zealand step!
After one day off I’m moving again. I think I need 3 days to reach Auckland and finally, if I didn’t have to get the stuff I sent to Auckland during this year I could stay longer around here. But yes, this is my first year and I’ve learned how travelling by bike. Australia should be easier from this part (maybe not the rest).
Nothing special today. I thought the weather was going to be warm and good but around 11 am it started to rain, Arf! I’ve finally spent my time in the library and then went to the supermarket again to buy flour and make more bread. I’ve got a kitchen just for me so it’s nice to take the space I need and make good food for the rest if my trip. I hope I won’t have to buy bread again until I leave new Zealand. Tomorrow I’m going to continue my trip towards Auckland by the small roads. I have almost finished turning around this country, incredible :-D
7:16 am, I’ve got only 25km maximum to reach Raglan and if I arrive early I will pitch my tent in a campsite around 10 o’clock and then I will have all the day to enjoy. Plus a day off tomorrow, yes, good choice :-)
Today I’m gonna to visit Kawhia at least. On my map I’ve seen they is a natural hot pools next to the beach. If I could find it, it should be great. It will be a kind of shower :-) Then I will decide if I continue travelling towards Raglan or if I stay in Kawhia for a night.
2 days ago, before I leave the petrol station, I asked to the woman how was the road, if it was hilly or gravel or difficult… she answer me : “no, it’s easy, it’s along the river. There is few hills and some 20 metres gravel parts sometimes”. Hmmm, she was pretty correct but not for the gravels. It’s much Moe than 20m! But fortunately it’s compacted.
That’s a cloudy morning but I have to move. When I looked at the weather forecast last time they announced rain for today. I expected to stay here the day but finally I prefer keep moving. I’ve cooked my lunch and dinner so I’m pretty ready. And if it’s start raining again I will find a spot and wait…
