New Zealand – Auckland
There is not much to tell about Auckland. It’s an average and relatively young city. Almost everywhere the people are quite nice, though. It’s rather hot here around February, but the parks and beaches offer nice cooling down by awesome trees and palms.
On my hand, I solved the camera problem by getting a replacement. A Canon Powershot SX 110 IS. It’s quite nice, cause manual adjustable. Still, it’s just a digital camera. I also got a lot of backpacking stuff together. (stove, cooking equipment, gas, maps, universal natural soap, hat – just to name a few)
So much for civilisation. I’m off with the 0815 bus to the backcountry!
Next stop: Taupo in the early afternoon.
