It was a fairly short walk to Waitangi Forest but I was absolutely loving my shoes!
So with my Happy Shoes and magic sticks, I headed towards Paihia.
And saw some pretty cool stuff along the way.
Some kinda boring pine forest, then...
Getting into Paihia, a couple of touristy things,
Eventually after some interesting discussions with locals I found a backpackers and got to know the local Germans, French, Canadians and occasional Kiwi.
And that, dear friends, will be my night. Tomorrow, meeting a water taxi at Opua and I continue South!
