Hello there! Pat and I have been traveling around the far north of NZ. We have been to some beautiful beaches, and seen lots of pretty country side. Yesterday we went on a long hike to Cape Reinga. It was very steep, very muddy and slippery, with thorn bushes on either side. Those who know me, know that I'm a little clumsy, and of course I fell face first into a thorn bush and then slipped down the muddy hill on my butt. I emerged covered in thorns on my front and mud on my back. But that didn't keep us from climbing to our destination. We got there, some how pat slipped and slidded around too, but didn't get any mud on his clothes, hmmm. But it was beautiful the whole way. Everytime we looked around us there was another beautiful site to behold. Cape Reinga has a light house there and its where the Pacific ocean meets the Tasman sea. You can actaully see where they meet. The picture is below. The waves on the left are the Tasman sea, and the ones on the right are the Pacific. The waves are moving towards each other instead of the same direction. It's pretty cool. As for us, we are getting the hang of van life pretty well. Pat's reading all of Lord of the Rings, and I'm reading Mansfield park. We eat good food everynight (thanks to pat) and we see the sunrise every morning, and the sunset every night. It's pretty sweet. We are completly out of the loop on what is going on in the world. I have heard no news since we left. Also both of our watches died about 2 weeks ago, and the clock in Delilah doesn't work, so we only know what time it is when we get on the computer, and the clock is still set for Utah, so....yeah. If anything important does happen, let us know...you are our only connection to the outside world. Until next time...
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
