So today’s the last day of my Bay of Island trip, and it’s a rather easy one. We had lots of free time today so I decided to go horseback riding! Since I had this weird desire to go lol. So the company I went through was called Horse Trek’n and while its wasn’t the most amazing horse tour I’ve ever been on, it was still a lot of fun, AND the view from the top of the volcano was stunning.
On the ride I meet this guy called Mohamed from Saudi Arabia! I’ve never meet anyone from there before, and it was very exciting, he was very nice and a experienced traveler, he’s been traveling for the last 3 years and has already been to New Zealand 3 times before!!
Next we stopped at this mountain range called the Three Sisters, I believe, I could be wrong, I need to write everything down!!!
Then we took a quick little pit-stop at this huge souvenir shop that had this amazing carved out staircase Kauri Tree. Defiantly want that in my house.
And last, just before arriving into Auckland we had a quick glance at the Haruru Falls in Waitangi. These falls while beautiful and easily accessible, lost a lot of appeal to me due to the fact that at the lagoon there was spray paint on the trees, cigarette butts on the ground, and beer bottles floating in the water. It’s really shame, but this usually always happens when you have a built up popular tourist spot, it get the visitors both good and bad.
