Arrived to Auckland the day before in the evening but the road-trip started that Tuesday morning.
And it was already the best time of my life (so far)!
First stop: Thames
It is quiet and relaxing. I liked it.
I wouldn’t say that it is a necessary stop but I enjoyed it.
Also, this is where I saw for the first time a new fruit to me!
It was time to get back on the road and that is when I was able to enjoy the views…
Second stop: Coromandel
After a quick look around and a stop to see a tiny waterfall: Waiau Falls,
it was time for some more driving and some more breathtaking views:
before arriving at the first official stop of this road trip, there was a need for some hot water beach enjoyment!
And some more views:
Last stop of the day: Opoutere, for the night!
