On April 27, we left this beautiful setting which was our home away from home for one night, The Kaihu Farmstay Hostel. While there we met Vivian and Claudia, German girls in NZ to study English. And Jim Gurd, a UK resident, recently retired school teacher, cycling NZ for 3 months. The girls got in their car and drove to Auckland (2 hours), Jim is cycling to Auckland (4 days)and the McFarlands, cycling to Cape Reinga (3-day ride)
