New Friends

Starting off our travels with a short trip further north my new travelmates Jana and Christina and me went to farewell spit with our new ride Sushi. (He’s a Mitsubishi Galant, sometimes brown-grey and sometimes slightly pink and takes the mountains like a fighter! Ha!)

Farewell Spit at the very north of South Island is well worth the trip, it’s the biggest sand bank in New Zealand and a bird sanctuary. The beaches around are also really interesting with their rocks and birds – and seals! :) Have a look!

The treck to Wharariki Beach leads over sheep grazing land.. why are they always so freaked out by people..?
