From Auckland, North to Bay of Islands…

From Auckland we travelled North by car to the Bay of Islands; quite a long journey and worse still it was dull and raining, but the scenery is quite spectacular with undulating hills and valley’s through which we took or time.

The main road North from Auckland is called the “Twin Coast Discovery Route”, but given the rain we didn’t “discover” as much as we had looked forward to.

We stayed in Opua which is broadly the setting for the signing in The Treaty of Waitangi which now forms the basis of modern New Zealand’s society and takes its name from the place in the Bay of Islands where it was first signed, in 1840 (who’s been reading his history then) – but interesting stuff.

Boat HouseOur accommodation was the most wonderful  5 star apartments called “the Boat House” not to be confused with our planned accommodation on Waiheke Island – a fantastic 5 star boutique hotel  run by Jonathan Scott, called “The Boat Shed” (yes I’m confused too) enough of that though, we will write more and publish soon
