Raglan to Auckland via Hamilton

North Island

We drove towards Hamilton and went for a look around the city. It’s quite nice but if you had to miss something out then I would miss this out.

From here we drove west to Raglan which is a surfers town and I have been here before and remembered loving it. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great but we still got a feel for the town, it has nice shops and cafes. We drove to the famous surf beach and watched the surfers for a bit then camped in the town.

We then drove to Auckland, we drove around the town and then we went to watch some cricket and then to Ponsonby (a nice part of the city) for a drink. We met our friend Emily once she had finished work and went out in the city for food and beers.

The next day she was setting up an under 20’s warriors rugby league game so we went to watch that. We then picked Luke our other friend up from the airport in the afternoon. He had been in oz visiting family and friends and came over for a few days. We stayed the night in Auckland as Chris had an interview the next morning so went out with Emily again for some food and few beers.

Again I forgot to take photos!! I think the north island so far has felt quite underwhelming compared to the north so nothing really stood out for me to take photos of and we haven’t camped in beatiful places, mainly car parks, so it’s not be worth taking photos out of the back of the van.
