I've been in Coromandel town now for a few nights. Heavy rains but also more sun than expected. Me (Swede), Rob (Dutch), and Tessy (Luxembourgish) joined international forces for an extra good time around town. We did a walk for about 3 hours going up, down, up, down, up, down, and so on. We certainly saw some lovely views and climbed lot's of stairs. I really hope we'll get together again somewhere on the south island later on for more adventures and laughs! Cheers mates!!
Major milestone today: Peter arrived! With a car! Happy times :) He made it here from Auckland in record time. And he's stayed awake until now. We did some car-seeing today, and tomorrow we'll continue to Rotorua and smell the hot springs.
