:: Coastal Camper :: it's been just over a week since I have left New Zealand but the memories will last a lifetime - "we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. Full movie link in Bio. #nzmustdo#travelcommunity
Our first over night on Kapai, what a beautiful bay to wake up in, Just one other boat anchored nearby, the boat had a USA flag and a not cleared customs flag, so we were not able to say hello as bio surcurity is very important here in NZ. We are exited to explore more of the 140 islands in this beautiful bay#Newzealand#bayofislands

although I am doing a lot of exploring and sightseeing here in New Zealand I'm basically on a working vacation. WWOOFing is really big here and it's been an amazing way of traveling on a budget. If you don't know WWOOF-Willing Workers on Organic Farms is a 4-6 hr a day work exchange program for meals and a bed and how I'm able to travel to these beautiful places. Before going to amazing sights I'm waking up early to work in the morning before any adventuring! 🌺
Although these ARE photos of some the better/more fun jobs I've done, my hands are blistered, my muscles ache and because of there being A HOLE IN THE OZONE LAYER RIGHT ABOVE NZ Ive been burnt since I arrived🔥 the work is a range of everything from digging holes on a farm to plant and restore it back to native NZ bush; plant irrigation around an avacado farm; paint a hut for future wwoofers; work a farmers market; feed all the farm animals; ALOT of weeding, to even feeding a dudes pet river eels and watching them fight! 🐍 🐍
After a summer of festivals & carcamping I didn't come with much 💰 to begin with so you don't gotta be rich to travel people!!
If you're interested in traveling it's a great way to do it, learn about the people who really live here & their ways of life..hey they might even give you their kayak on your last day to go explore in!! I've also met some awesome other wwoofers along the way @thebeezkneez95 @woodlandhills_homestead 🐑🐽🐄🐰
Just a three-hour drive or 35-minute flight from Auckland, the Bay of Islands is one of New Zealand's most stunning regions of natural beauty (and that's no easy feat when there's such fierce competition).
Climb aboard a sailing catamaran, complete with private cabins, a spacious lounge, outdoor dining space and trampolines in the boughs for relaxing and dolphin watching.
Sail through the archipelago, stopping off at remote beaches and Maori cultural sites. Swim, snorkel, paddle-board and kayak through the dazzling blue waters to soak up the idyllic surroundings.
