When abroad, one of the many things you find very nice feeling at home is when you meet your own country man. In my case, I met my old friend Stanley Skadiang and his family in Auckland. Also managed to have teh tarik and mee mamak at the Malysian restaurant while in Auckland. Miss home? No lah! Just the familiar environment in foreign soil is always very refreshing....Life likes that

One of the best part of North Island is their Geothermal features of the landscape. There I met an Old Kiwi guiding his fellow friends from OZ. He barely walk but with stick he proudly said "with 3 legs you go for miles. And getting out of the thermal pools make it tough isn't it? Tough nut he is.
The geothermal anywhere compare to location in your place?

One of the interesting thing about NZ is easy to go anywhere. From shoe-string to 5 stars budget you can be there and pick your itinerary. My experience tells me to spend more time in the South island than the North. Why? In my opinion, South Island offers many natural activities to be explored, remote and 'slightly cooler'.

As we cross the Cook Strait towards North Island, the weather gets chilly. In the early morning its already single digit. Walking along the beach of Kaikoura in the wee morning was just breathtaking! Beautiful sunrise, sound of silence only the rushing waves and cold. After a short stroll, returning to the motel and have a big breakfast with hot Long Black is just no word to describe "What a feeling"...the adventure continues.
