I finally have a car. I bought it via tradme.co.nz which is the NZ version of ebay. I won the auction and have a Nissan for NZD $530 which is not a lot of money. The car goes really well so far and I think I got a bit of a bargain as it only passed it’s road worthy test last week for 6 months.
So I am leaving Auckland, my base, for a few days in the volcanic centre of the North Island to do some trekking. Despite the fact it is officially summer here there is still some snow on the trail apparently!
The weather has been pretty awful the last few days but things should settle down in the new year. I am coming back to Auckland for a Christmas day on the beach booze up and then heading to the North for new years. Catch up with you on Christmas eve!
