Six months on the road and I’m still loving life (of course). Six months down and I can hardly believe it, almost half way through this trip.
January has been spent purely in New Zealand and it has been so fantastic to rediscover my home town of Auckland and see it through really fresh eyes having not lived here for almost 7 years and also through Dan’s who has only visited for really short periods of time.
We began the month with a day trip out to Rangitoto Island which is a volcano in the Hauraki Gulf of Auckland. I can’t believe this was my first trip to Rangitoto in all my 30 years on this planet! Just a short 30 minute ferry from Auckland central and you are transported to a green, volcanic rock filled volcano.
