We spent Christmas with Meer family and their friends. Then we moved with Meer parents to their another friend's second house.We separated from them on the 30th December, and we have started our motor home journey.It was a hard job that we were looking for camp ground without reservation in new year holidays. Any grounds packed with people. Children were hyper in some camping ground with their parents. They used too much space and made too loudly annoyed us. We decided we are not going to travel holiday season on this occasion. 





This was the first time we visited north island east coast. That was very countryside than I expected. Even though we could find the small town was Te Araroa between Opotiki to Tokomaru Bay, there was a few shop only. We like to drive and stay in nature, but if we couldn't meet civilization for a long time, we became miss it. Also it is necessary the town for getting groceries.

We have been bringing enough groceries while motor home journey. Because even if we use holiday park in countryside, they sell only bread or canned foods. Further more if we left from town, it is hard to find restaurant. We need to do self-management for our foods. If you do that, you can have a delicious food that you make any places.


We were lucky we could hike two times, even though unplanned journey. We got different view each hiking course, The nature scenery gave us energy to our heart. This journey was only 2 weeks. After we went back, I wanted go to another travel as soon as I can. We planned another travel in March, cause we had enough time in New Zealand.
